What should I wear on Sunday mornings?
When you come to Grand Avenue, you will see all styles of dress. Many people dress casually while others choose to dress up a bit more. People typically wear nice pants or jeans, but may dress up a bit more on special occasions like Christmas or Easter.
What is available for my kids?
On Sunday mornings we offer Sunday School classes for children age 3 through 8th grade at 9:00 AM. High Schoolers have their own Sunday School at 9:00 AM as well. During the 10:15 AM worship service, Children's Church is available for children age 3 through 4th grade (they will spend part of the time in the gym and part of the time in the auditorium). Nursery is available for infants through age 2 during both hours.
What is the Sunday worship service like?
You can expect to sing a few worshipful songs of a "blended" musical style -- both traditional hymns and contemporary choruses -- followed by a time for communion (the Lord's Supper) and quiet reflection. Our service then moves to a Scriptural message and a time of invitation. We try to keep the length of the service to one hour, though on some Sundays there may also be a baptism for new believers or the welcoming of new members.
Do I need to wear a name tag?
There is no expectation for guests to be publicly introduced during the worship service or for guests to have to wear a name tag, so please relax and enjoy our time of worship and instruction.
Do I need to bring a Bible?
If you don't have a Bible, we have Bibles available under the seats for you to use during the worship service, and each Sunday School classroom has Bibles in it as well. If you need a Bible for your own personal use, we can get you one. If you want to use a Bible app on your smart phone, that's okay.
Where should I park and where should I enter the building?
There are two driveways onto our property from Grand Avenue. Using either one, drive all the way back to find our main parking lot. You should enter the building through the glass doors positioned below a large protective overhang on the south end of the building. Handicap parking is available closest to that entrance. While you may see some other doors on the east or west sides of the building, please use the entrance on the south side.
What kind of church is GACC anyway?
If you are looking for a church where we all look the same and act the same and think the same, you won't find it here. Our church is a diverse group of people of all ages, from all walks of life, and of varying levels of spiritual maturity. If you are looking for a church of differing people that is generally characterized by unity as we each attempt to live our Christian lives by seeking God's truths as found in the Bible, we hope you will find it here.
