10:45am Sunday Morning Worship
Age-wise, we are a mixture of ages and you can find young, middle age and seniors in our congregation. Overall, we tend to be on the older side. Dress trends toward business-casual, though you can find folds wearing jeans and other types of casual clothing. People are friendly, though you may need to be bold and introduce yourself. We don’t ask our visitors to publicly identify themselves during the worship services, however, during a short meet and greet period folds may spot you as a visitor and say hello.
Sunday mornings begin at 9:30am when we gather together for an hour of Sunday School in which we learn about God’s Word and its application to all areas of life.
Our worship service begins at 10:45am. During this time we sing several songs, offer prayer and praise, hear Scripture read and give our financial offerings. Visitors are not expected to participate in offerings but may do so if they wish. Preaching is expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last between 30-45 minutes. All preaching is gospel-driving. A normal service lasts until 12 noon.
The music we sing at GBC is a blend of old and new. We love the doctrinally rich hymns of centuries past and we find blessing in the choruses of the twenty-first. We favor congregation singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, though usually we also have individuals that sing praise songs.
