A response to recent news articles associated with one of our rentals:
We are greatly concerned upon hearing of the abuse suffered by the victims mentioned in recent news articles, which named a tenant leasing space in our facility, Grace Christian School. Our church staff and leadership are praying for all involved.
Forest Grove Community Church’s operations staff and church leadership have reviewed our rental agreement with Grace Capstone Ministries and have made the decision to terminate our lease contract with Grace Christian School, effective September 2022. We are grieved for the students and families that will be affected and did not make this decision lightly.
We want to assure our congregants and attendees that our own FGCC ministries abide by our Safe Place Policy, which guides our interactions with the vulnerable sector for the physical, emotional, and spiritual protection of children, youth, and others.
If you have further questions for our staff or leadership about FGCC’s policies, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be forwarded to the appropriate person for response. Out of respect for the on-going investigation, we have no comment on Grace Christian School or their operating policies.
