What should you expect if you come and worship with us at Grace?
Dress: The members of Grace are a diverse group of persons, which is reflected in what we wear to church. Some of our members dress more formally for for church, while others dress in more casual attire.
Worship: Our worship is “liturgical,” in that it follows a certain order. See here for a sample order of worship.
Our service is designed to be interactive. For example, after each prayer and the “Benediction,” the congregation will respond with a corporate “Amen.” We also pray a corporate “Prayer of Confession.” We celebrate the “Lord’s Table” every Lord’s Day, alternating between the morning and evening services.
Music: Our worship music is traditional. During the morning service, we are typically accompanied by an organ, while in the evening we are typically accompanied by the piano. On certain occasions, there are other instruments used to accompany the singing.
We primarily sing hymns and psalms using the Trinity Hymnal and The Book of Psalms for Singing, though we also use other material at times. In addition to our congregational singing, we also have a choir.
Children: We believe that our children are members of the church. Therefore, you will see young children sitting with their families throughout the entire service. We do this to help them understand they are part of the covenant community, as well as, to help teach them how to worship God. But we also understand that teaching children to sit still and pay attention can be difficult while they are young, so we also offer a staffed nursery for those who need it.
