You can expect a warm, friendly experience where people welcome you with open arms and are truly glad that you've come. A Sunday at GRBC includes a time of fellowship, bible study, joyful worship, a Christ-exalting message, and an opportunity to meet some really great people.
There's no dress code at GRBC; some folks like to dress up on Sundays, and some like to come in jeans. Either way is great as long as you come with an open heart!
We are a kid-friendly church. We provide an excellent nursery and children's church for kids 0-3rd grade during the service.
We sing songs, both old and new, that are rich in Biblical truth. Our main focus is always content rather than style. We have a culturally diverse congregation with many different musical preferences, but we are united in our love for God. Therefore, we love to sing songs that reflect the majestic, sovereign, gracious character of God and the wonderful truth of the gospel.
This is preaching whose object is to expound what is said in a particular passage of Scripture, carefully explaining its meaning and applying it to the congregation. This will most often occur here at GRBC by preaching through complete books of the Bible. A commitment to expositional preaching displays a belief in the authority and sufficiency of Scripture. It is not characterized by a particular form or style, but by content.
The Lord Jesus instituted this covenant meal to be observed in His churches until He returns. We observe this supper to intentionally remember Christ and His death in the place of sinners. We eat and drink to visibly confirm our invisible faith in Christ. This is a time that the body of Christ gathers to confess sin, renew our faith, express our unity as believers and enjoy exceptional fellowship with our Lord.
GRBC celebrates the Lord’s Supper as a part of our weekly gatherings. All baptized believers, both our covenant members and guests, who are in good standing with a local church body, actively confessing their sin, and continually trusting in Christ, are invited to eat the bread and drink from the cup in obedience to Jesus’ command.
