WORSHIP

About our Worship

Corporate worship on the Lord’s Day is the most important event in the life of our congregation. Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. When we worship God we are being most fully human because worshipping the Triune God and finding our pleasure in him is what we were created to do. Unfortunately, sin has affected our desires and we tend to look away from God in an attempt to fill our hearts and find contentment. In the Lord’s grace, he has set aside one day in seven for the corporate body to gather in his presence and worship him.

As we gather to worship, it is our hope that we will experience the grace and mercy found in the gospel and that our hearts will be turned from false objects of worship and be returned to our Creator. This is what we mean by making God’s grace and the gospel a part of our daily lives.


Our Desire Is:

  • to purify and elevate our vision of God’s majesty and love
  • to nurture heartfelt delight in God
  • to devote the whole of the Lord’s Day to him with both morning and evening corporate worship participation
  • to seek to be guided by Scripture alone in our worship of God
  • to encourage loving, passionate communion with God in his presence


We believe that when we worship, we are in the presence of the Lord, engaging in gospel dialogue with him, while being reminded once again of his love and faithfulness to us. Our expectation is that each of us, as we worship, will be confronted with the multi-faceted truth of the gospel throughout the entire service, experiencing the gospel in our minds, hearts and wills. It is this presupposition about worship that has influenced the order of service at Grace Presbyterian Church.
Morning Worship Sunday at 10:30 a.m.


Baptisms

Baptism is a sacrament representing the work of the Holy Spirit, who was poured out on God’s people to carry out his work of cleansing from sin and empowering for a new life.

At Grace Presbyterian, baptisms are done during the morning worship service for the children of communing members. Prior to the baptism, parents will meet with the Senior Pastor, Chris Donnelly, to further discuss the implications of baptism and raising a covenant child.

To schedule a baptism, please contact the church office at 931.537.6400.
