how we're serving safely throughout COVID-19

We understand that the prospect of serving is scary right now because we’re all focused on keeping one another safe and healthy. Here at Delta Grace, we’re trying to take every precaution necessary to keep both our missioners and community members as safe as possible.

Now, more than ever, we must continue to provide safe, sanitary and secure housing for the elderly, disabled and others who do not have the means to have adequate living conditions.

Completing repairs that our applicants desperately need brings us one step closer to bringing healing and wholeness to a hurting world.  We cannot work toward this goal without the help of missioners.

If you’re looking for a way to make a difference in this unprecedented time, we ask that you prayerfully consider serving with us.

Project Safety

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, missioners will work on outdoor service projects, such as building wheelchair ramps, roofing, or replacing siding. To ensure the safety of our homeowners, missioners are expect to wear masks when homeowners are present and wash their hands often.  Daily temperature check of homeowners and missioners will be taken. 

Missioners will maintain proper social distancing standards, as defined by the CDC, with all members of the Delta community and with all members of the Delta Grace staff.

Social distancing within mission groups will be at the discretion of each group’s leaders.

Accommodations Safety

Delta Grace will accommodate one team of missioners at a time in our facilities.

Missioners and their leaders will be responsible for enforcing social distancing guidelines within their group when on campus.

Delta Grace and its employees will maintain proper social distancing from mission teams and will remain in designated office areas while a missioners are staying at our facilities. Employees will use a separate restroom, but may use common areas such as the kitchen and sanctuary as necessary to conduct regular business.

Team leaders are responsible for reviewing the “COVID-19 in Mississippi” link below so that they are aware of the risk of possible exposure to the coronavirus. 

Coronavirus + Mississippi

As of May 19, 2020, Mississippi has 11,704 cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and 554 deaths. In Sunflower County, where Delta Grace most often serves, there have been 68 cases of the virus and 3 deaths. Most restaurants and businesses in Mississippi have been allowed to reopen with some restrictions, though public schools remained closed. State employees, including non-essential school employees, have been instructed to return to work with proper precaution.

please note

that these pictures were taken before the CDC issued pandemic guidelines, and therefore may not reflect the precautions that Delta Grace is currently taking.

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.
