6. What about my kids?
Greater Grace has a Children’s ministry where your kids will be taught the Bible in age-appropriate classes. Our goal is to make church on Sunday the best hour of your kid’s week. Children dismissed to class after congregational singing.
7. What is your Music Philosophy?
Greater Grace is a cross generational church, we don't think that the Body of Christ should be age segregated. In 21st century church culture we see more and more age segregation. Music and praise/worship seems to be a major player in the change from the congregations of mixed ages and preferences to what is often seen now. Music is one of the main ways that a church shows its stylistic preferences and a way a church identifies itself.
We don’t box the worship of God in song. Our goal is a mix of blended worship, well-known hymns and choruses as well as contemporary choruses. We offer classical hymns as well as those done in a more modern arrangement. You'll hear music from contemporary praise and worship writers and artists. Greater Grace uses multi-generational praise and worship teams that we feel foster unity and sensitively merges styles and cultures.
Our philosophy isn't to have preference oriented services such as traditional, classical and contemporary. We believe the uniting factor in the Body of Christ, in the local church, is the Gospel of Grace. The beauty of the gospel is that it brings together people who would not naturally choose to be together. The gospel brought Jew and Gentile together into a new creature (Ephesians 2:15). The differences weren't magnified, peace was the standard as The Audience of One was worshiped. The Holy Spirit knows that a united people in one church will displays the beauty of the gospel brilliantly.
