What happens on a normal Sunday morning?
Sunday mornings are a refreshing and enjoyable time. Sunday School, when in session, starts at 9:30 am for children and adults and ends around 10:15 am (varies, check schedule first), giving you some time to regroup with your family, visit with new friends, and prepare for worship.
Our worship service begins at 10:30 am and typically lasts about 90 minutes. The service begins with a time of worshipful singing blending contemporary songs and traditional hymns. Some people sing and clap along; others might lift their hands humbly in worship; some might simply listen and reflect quietly. We invite you to be who you are and to seek God without any fear of hype or manipulation. (We sing again in the middle, and at the end, of the service.)
After the reading of the Scriptures and a time of prayer, the Word of God is preached by one of our Pastors. The Word is preached in an expositional way, meaning that the text is explained, with care and in it's proper context, and then applied to us today. We offer real-time sermon translation into over 50 languages; just bring your fully-charged smartphone. The translation is sent to your phone as text so you can read along. If you prefer to listen please bring headphones or earbuds. After the preaching we then have a time of offering where GBC members give of their income to the ministries of the church; please know that we do not expect our guests to feel obligated to give in this offering although we welcome and greatly appreciate your giving if you decide to participate. After the offering there is a time of weekly announcements, followed by a song and a benediction.
We traditionally partake of the Lord's Supper on the last Sunday of the month.
After the service there is a time of fellowship and refreshments. This is a wonderful time to get to know people or catch up with friends. If you have any questions about Grace Baptist Church, one of our pastors would love to speak with you! After the fellowship and refreshments those who wish can “Stay and Pray” for 15 minutes.
