When Grace Gathers
Corporate worship is a precious privilege and time to experience, while still on earth, a little of the expectation of heaven (Revelation 4, 5). These are vital times of teaching and admonishing one another, building each other up, encouraging fellow believers, and stimulating one another to love and good deeds (Col 3:12-17, Heb 10:24-25) – all as we directly offer praise, worship, and adoration to our God in an attitude of holy fear (Heb 12:28-29)
Sunday Morning Worship Service
8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 AM
The purpose of our worship service is to glorify God by praising Him and edifying believers. To this end, we worship through song, public reading of Scripture, prayer, expository preaching, and giving. Our singing is a mix of God-exalting hymns and contemporary songs accompanied by a variety of instruments. Our corporate prayer is led by men from within the congregation. Once a month, we partake in the observance of the Lord’s Supper as part of our Worship Service.
9:30 & 11:00 AM
Sunday School is an additional opportunity to grow in understanding and conformity to God’s Word.
Children meet for age-appropriate teaching in the following age ranges:
4-years-old – Kindergarten
1st – 3rd grades
4th – 6th grades
We use a God-centered curriculum (Generations of Grace developed by Grace Community Church – Sun Valley, CA), providing an expository approach to God’s Word with rich application for the lives of children.
The curriculum is “unified” in approach. Each age group is taught the same passage of Scripture at an appropriate level. Over a three-year period, each group covers the historical books of the Old Testament, the Life of Christ, Acts, and Revelation.
Ages 12-18 meet together for in-depth study. We help prepare them with a rock-solid Biblical foundation upon which to build the rest of their lives. To this end, we rotate through a cycle of exegetical teaching through books of the Bible, Systematic Theology, OT and NT Survey, and Apologetics/Worldview Studies.
Adults have several options for study and encouragement from God’s Word. Classes include expository teaching through books of the Bible, as well as presentations of Biblical topics. This is a rich time of learning, interaction, and encouraging one another to love and good deeds!
Sunday evenings are the time we break down into smaller groups, meeting in homes to sing, share, pray with one another, and review the sermon for greater understanding and application. We do not believe that small groups are the key to the church (sound teaching is). However, fellowship groups have a valuable function in encouraging spiritual health in the body.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to His name;
Worship the LORD in holy array.
Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
I will give thanks to the LORD according to His righteousness
And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.
As is Your name, O God,
So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is full of righteousness.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips will praise You.
2022 Wednesday Night Schedule
The youth (Garamuts ages 12-18) meet for a time of singing and teaching from the Word, followed by fellowship and prayer in small groups. We rotate between expository teaching through a book of the Bible and in-depth instruction on Biblical topics.
For further questions about our Youth class, please contact Rob Rathbun
Our children (Kingdom Kids, ages 4-6th Grade) come together for a time full of learning and fun.
We divide the evening into 3 categories:
- Bible Truth Time – The children are instructed from the Bible how to seek first the kingdom of God.
- Songs and Catechism – This is designed to reinforce the teaching of God’s Word through singing and catechism questions.
- Game Time – Game time enables the kids to develop character while at the same time having some plain old fun!
