What should I expect the first time I attend GBC?
The main entrance to our building faces the back of our property with additional entrances on the sides. We have provided designated parking spots at the front for our visitors, but of course, feel free to park anywhere you like.
Greeters are at the entrances to assist you, so please feel free to ask them any questions. In the foyer, you will find complimentary coffee/tea, which is provided to encourage everyone to engage in conversation before and after the services. As you enter the auditorium, visit the "sound booth" if you would like a hearing assistance device.
What is the music like?
Our corporate musical worship is a combination of hymns, contemporary songs, and full complement of instruments. The songs we sing are theologically rich and allow God’s people to praise Him.
What is Expository Preaching?
We follow our time of corporate worship in music and welcome with about 40-45 minutes of ‘expository preaching’, which means that we teach consecutively through books of the Bible chapter by chapter, verse by verse. We firmly believe that the word of God is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12) and our preaching should reflect that. We hope you’ll find our messages to be thoughtful, penetrating, insightful, applicable, and convicting because that is what God’s word seeks to accomplish in our lives.
How should I dress?
You’ll find the style of dress at Grace Bible Church to range from suits and ties to jeans and sandals. The point is that we want everyone who desires to worship our great God to feel welcome as they are.
What about my children?
We offer age-based classes (newborns through high school) and the classrooms are located behind the auditorium or down the main corridor. Families are also welcome to worship together in the main service.
Will I be asked for money?
We do not pass a plate at Grace Bible Church. We believe that giving is between you and God, and so we have placed four small offering boxes on the back wall. What each gives is held in confidence – and is only known to the Treasurers of GBC.
What do you have for visitors?
As a visitor to Grace, we would ask that as you leave the service, you stop at the Visitor Table on the plaza, where you will be given a 'Welcome Packet' and a Visitor Card to complete. In the packet, you will find information about our ministries. You will be given a free book as our gift of thanks to you for completing the card and visiting with us.
How do I get involved?
There are numerous other vital ministries at Grace Bible Church and you can find information about them on this site. We are encouraged that you found our website and are considering a visit. We hope you’ll decide to come and fellowship with us soon. We look forward to meeting you!
