Morning Worship | 10am
We gather at 10am at Greenlaw Community Center (190 Mill Avenue, 38105). Our services are built around the day's sermon text and patterned in light of a Gospel-shaped Liturgy.
Our aim is for the voices of God's worshiping people to be the predominant sound of Grace Church.
God’s favorite instrument is the human body expressing Godward praise (Rom. 12:1).
We seek to use instrumentality to help raise our voices rather than drown them out. The song lyrics are tied to the day's sermon text, and aim at the glory of Christ.
The Lord's Supper
We observe the Lord's Supper weekly.
Who Should Take the Lord's Supper?
We believe the Lord’s Supper is for:
Baptized Christians, who are…
Forsaking all known sin, and are…
An active member of a gospel-proclaiming church
Others are instructed to remain seated and prayerfully meditate on the sermon. Examine yourself (1 Cor. 11).
Why Do Christians take the Lord's Supper?
To reflect on the great gospel-love of God for sinners in Christ’s cross & resurrection, and as a symbol of our fresh repentance from ourselves and our sin testifying anew our reliance upon Jesus to obey His commands until He returns.
How Grace Partakes of the Lord's Supper:
At the designated time in the service, the congregation is invited to the Lord's Table.
Those who partake will gather in small clusters. A Grace Church member in each cluster will volunteer to offer a prayer of thanks for the gospel work of Jesus and for grace to follow Him until He returns. Then, the cluster will partake in the bread and the cup together.
Families & Children
Worship Nursery - ages: birth - 3yrs
During the worship gathering, GraceKids nursery is available for children birth - 3 years old. Check-in opens at 9:40am, and closes five minutes after the service concludes.
GraceKids - ages: 4YRS - 6th grade
During the worship gathering on Seeing Christ Sundays (first 3 Sundays of each month) there is a time to introduce the week’s catechism for children ages 4 years to 6th grade. This time is called Tasting the Truth.
GraceKids classes are offered at 10am on Savoring Christ Sundays (4th Sunday of each month) for children 4 years old through 6th grade. During this time, students will spend time reviewing our Tasting The Truth catechisms.
Loud room & Nursing Area
We are VERY glad when God blesses families with children. We understand that young people can sometimes be loud. Therefore, nearly every service at Grace has a noticeable amount of joyous noise from little people. If, however, your child is becoming a disruption to the service, you're welcome to use the cry room to calm your child and then reenter the service.
