In Person Celebrate Recovery Meetings

Celebrate Recovery is back at Grace starting Friday, September 11.


  • There will be an informal fellowship from 6-7 PM (a meal will not be provided at this time, but you can bring your own food).
  • The group meeting and open share small groups will meet from 7-9 PM.


We ask everyone who attends to follow the precautionary measures recommended by state and local health officials (stay home if sick or at higher risk for severe illness, practice social distancing, clean hands often, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, etc.).

Update: July 1

Celebrate Recovery Online

We have decided to move our Celebrate Recovery meetings online for now.


Are you struggling with hurts, habits, or hang-ups? Would you like to learn how to care for the life and relationships God has given you? Join us via Zoom on Friday nights at 7 PM. We'll all start together for the large group meeting then break up into smaller groups for men and women. Learn more about Celebrate Recovery and request the Zoom link here.

Update: June 19

In response to the increase of COVID-19 cases in our community and Scottsdale's emergency proclamation that requires people to cover their nose and mouth in most public areas, we want to repeat our original safety precautions for meeting together and communicate additional steps we are taking on Sunday mornings.


  • Stay home if you are sick, at higher risk for severe illness, or have serious underlying medical conditions.
  • Avoid close contact with others while in the building.
  • We will now be blocking off rows of pews to make it easier to find a seat six feet apart from others.
  • Prevent the spread of germs by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • For the protection of others, we now ask everyone to wear a mask or cloth face covering any time you are not at your socially distanced seat in the sanctuary.


We believe that by following simple, common sense guidelines recommended by public health experts we can be good stewards of the freedom we have as a church, help prevent future shutdowns in our community, and show love and concern for everyone who wants to gather with us.

Update: June 6

The Building Is Open This Sunday AM

You can participate in our Sunday morning service at 10:30 AM by joining our online livestream or by joining us in the building. We ask everyone who wants to attend in person to follow precautionary measures recommended by state and local health officials.

  • Stay home if you are sick, at higher risk for severe illness, or have serious underlying medical conditions.
  • Avoid close contact with others while in the building (stay six feet apart).
  • Prevent the spread of germs by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • For the protection of others, please wear a mask or cloth face covering while in more confined areas like the lobby or restroom.


For your protection the interior of the building has been professionally treated with a spray disinfectant and we will be cleaning frequently touched surfaces while the building is occupied. Doors in the lobby and sanctuary will be opened to limit the need to touch handles and to increase the circulation of air. We will work to promote social distancing by spacing out seating, limiting time spent in the building, and encouraging the use of elbow bumps and waves instead of handshakes and hugs. We will not hand out bulletins or pass offering plates during the service (offering plates will be at the exits of the sanctuary and information about online giving and text to give is available at www.gcaz.in/Give).


For now there will be no nursery or Kids Quest. Children are welcome to join us in the main sanctuary.


Please park in the west parking lot and enter from that side of the building (the entrance closest to the main sanctuary).

Given the latest recommendations and restrictions on public meetings due to COVID-19, the pastors and leaders of Grace Scottsdale have decided to temporarily halt our public gatherings on campus. This includes our Sunday Celebrations, Sunday night classes, and other small group meetings and studies. We will resume meetings at the building as soon as it is declared safe.


We may not be gathering in the building but the church will continue meeting together online to worship God, to hear the Word, to pray, and to encourage one another. Our Celebration service will be broadcast live at 10:30 AM on Sundays on our website, on Facebook, and on YouTube. We are also exploring other creative ways to stay connected during this time of social distancing (like Zoom meetings, Facebook Live events, and old fashioned phone calls). We will post more information here as it becomes available.

Dear Grace Scottsdale Family,


As the pastors and leaders of Grace Scottsdale, we want to address the concerns we all have surrounding COVID-19 and share a few thoughts as to how we can respond as a church.


Our first response is to pray fervently for our community and others around the world who have been impacted by this virus. We urge everyone To pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.


For now we will continue to meet on Sundays at 10:30 AM. In light of this we are taking special steps to prevent the spread of sickness in our public gatherings.


We ask everyone who attends our gatherings to follow the personal precautionary measures recommended by the CDC (clean hands often, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, stay home if sick, etc.). Learn more at www.gcaz.in/CDC.


Before and after services and during our regular greeting times we will trade our normal hugs and handshakes for waves, smiles, and elbow or fist bumps. We will not pass the offering plates for now. Offering plates will be at the exits of the sanctuary and online giving is available at www.gcaz.in/Give.


The nursery workers are taking extra precautions to keep the children and workers safe.


We are asking anyone who is sick to stay home. It is important to protect others and avoid any unnecessary spread of germs and possible sickness. Anyone with suppressed or compromised immune systems should take all necessary precautions to maintain your health and follow the advice of your health care professionals.


If you stay at home, we encourage you to participate from home by joining our services through video livestream. Our live video feed will be available on Sundays at 10:30 AM on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GraceChapelAZ.


We will continue to monitor the instructions provided by our government officials and healthcare professionals and will take additional precautions if and when they become necessary. We will keep you informed of any additional steps we need to take.


As we trust in the Lord during this difficult and scary time, let’s encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing, and stand together in prayer asking God to stop the virus and heal all who are infected.


Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
