SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE
We gather for worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 am. We encourage you to come as you are, our atmosphere is informal and personable, while remaining reverent and joyful before our God. Our lives, ministry and services are governed by the authority of God’s Word, therefore we believe in Bible-centered, expository preaching and teaching as the foundation of everything we do. In our music, we value the historic traditions of the church while embracing the best that current hymn-writers have to offer. You will hear classic hymns and modern favorites weekly. We are blessed to have many young families and we encourage families to worship together, so you will hear the joyful sounds of children playing and occasionally crying (Mt. 19:14). We know that you will find our church family welcoming and authentic.
We would love to meet you and answer any questions that you may have.
WHAT IF YOU’RE NOT USED TO GOING TO CHURCH?
We welcome you and encourage questions as we help you figure things out. It is our hope and prayer that Grace Fellowship will be a place you can connect relationally as you are encouraged to explore the truth of the Bible. We don’t have it all together either, what unites us is that we are broken and that we recognize that our identity, salvation, healing and hope is in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
At Grace Fellowship, we desire to encourage and equip families on Sunday morning and throughout the week. We believe that parents are primarily responsible for educating their children in the ways of the Lord (Dt. 6:6-7), and our desire is to supplement—not compete with—that objective. With this in mind, our preference is to support parents and children in participating together in the life of the Church, especially on Sunday mornings. However, we also recognize that for families with younger children this is not always possible. We also recognize that children mature differently, so we will work through those expectations with each family.
On Sunday mornings, families will join together in singing, praying, reading Scripture and hearing what God is doing in the life of the church. During the sermon, the children who are able to remain with their parents are encouraged to do so. Even if they do not understand everything, they pick up more than we give them credit for, and we have resources for families to follow up with what they've learned after service. For the younger children (ages 1-5 recommended) there will be an age appropriate Sunday School for them during the sermon where they will learn the Bible with a gospel focus each week. We are blessed to have dedicated members of our church family who love Christ, love children, and are committed to helping them understand the Bible and God's plan of redemption. Participating in this class is up to parent’s discretion. Please feel free to ask us any questions that you may have.
*Please know that all of our kids helpers and teachers have undergone a thorough background screening process
WHAT HAPPENS OUTSIDE OF THE SUNDAY SERVICE?
We believe whole-heartedly that the church is more than what happens on Sundays. That is why we meet in smaller groups throughout the week, which gather for Bible Study, fellowship and prayer. We also have studies and discipleship opportunities designed for men and women. We learn, laugh and cry together and we grow in the image of Christ. There are always additional opportunities for fellowship in larger and smaller groups, please check our calendar page for more information. The Christian life is seven days a week, and we see being involved in each other’s lives as essential to encouragement and spiritual growth.
