Supporting Our Neighbors

During these times of uncertainty, it’s even more important than ever that we support our neighbors. Gary Church partners with many organizations helping those in need locally as well as around the world. See our Mission page for more information and ways to give.

COVID-19 Response Update | July 17, 2020

Comprised of both members of the congregation and staff, the Gary Church Health Team has been working to find ways for us to be together in-person, while following the recommendations of government agencies and the Northern Illinois Conference. The following guidelines must be applied contextually with discernment. What might be safe for one group or one individual may not be safe for another. Before scheduling anything in-person, keep in mind John Wesley’s rule of “Do No Harm.” As the conditions in Illinois change with the coronavirus, these guidelines may change. 

The Church Office is open for limited appointment-only office hours, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Building will remain locked. Upon entering door 5, there will be a check-in/screening area and hand sanitizing station.

Gary groups of 50 or fewer may meet in limited, designated spaces and will need to be scheduled through the Church Office. Strict safely guidelines outlined on the Gary Church Health Team page of this website must be followed. Funerals/weddings of 50 or fewer (including pastors and ushers) may also be scheduled through the Church Office and must adhere to safety guidelines.

As our Health Team plans for next steps, worship and other ministry opportunities continue online. We invite you to scroll down for a list of ways we are staying connected electronically and for opportunities to support our neighbors in need. Our pastors remain available for prayer and support through phone, email, and via Zoom. For the safety of all, our pastoral staff and lay visitation team must suspend in-person visits during this time. We are deeply saddened to be unable to visit you, but encourage you to contact us through the Church Office at  

We are thankful for your continued giving to support the mission and ministry of the church. Please consider setting up online giving on the “Ways to Give” page of this website if you have not done so already. Please pray for one another and take good care of yourselves and your families.
