WHAT TO EXPECT

For the summer we are meeting twice a month with small group gatherings in between.  We plan a full launch in October. This is a great season to plug in, build relationships, and grow in your faith.

Reach out at gracecolorado.org@gmail.com to get involved.

We're just now beginning to establish our rhythm, but you can expect:

 

A welcoming, informal environment that still views God and worship with reverence. We believe being comfortable doesn't mean that we have to take God lightly!

We believe that taking God seriously doesn't mean you have to take yourself serious.

Expositional Preaching - where the message being taught is the message the Bible is teaching, not some guy's opinion. We prefer to teach through entire books of the Bible, so, A) we don't skip the hard parts, and B) we take in all God has to say... all the while addressing the difficult topics the world presents to us.

Reverent Worship - we believe that music is a God-ordained means of worshipping him, not a form of entertainment for us.  While we have some freedom with style and arrangement (hymns vs modern, etc), the emphasis must be on solid theological content. Because guess why? You will be singing those lyrics in your head all week, so the words had better be good.

Sound Doctrine - we believe that right theology plays a vital role in the development of authentic faith. Theology simply means knowledge of God.  We need to know who Jesus is and why we love him in order to have a right relationship with him.  Sound doctrine forms the foundation for our love, praise, and worship.

Family Integrated Worship - we believe the family that worships together is the family that makes disciples where it matters first - the home.  We seek to foster families and disciple parents to disciple their children.  We also seek to disciple those who have yet to begin families by bringing them into relationship with those who are well under way.

Where we are now: Children are integrated into the service through scripture reading and weekly teaching geared toward new believers.  Kids receive a worksheet and coloring page that follows along with the sermon so that their active minds can engage with the message while they worship alongside their families.

Where we are going: as we grow and have the resources, we desire to add Sunday school for all ages that will accompany and build upon the gathered worship.
