How Long Are Your Services?

Our services are at 10am and we usually gather for 60-75 minutes for include prayer, music, singing, a sermon, communion, activities for children and the opportunity to give tithes and offerings.

How Do I Get There?

We are the located at 9602-92 Ave, Grande Prairie, Alberta, on the corner of Resources Road and 92 Ave (near HJ’s Family Bowling and the Prairie Sunrise Towers.).  Many locals call our large brown building “ the pigeon church” because a number of birds are usually on our roof.

When You Come

Please check in or register at our welcome desk, and fill out a connection card(available upon request) so we can pray for you, answer your questions, or mail you a card later in the week.

Communion (Lord’s Supper)

The celebration of the Lord’s Supper is a weekly part of our worship service. In the bread and cup of communion we participate, celebrate and remember Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. We practice open communion, so all who have committed their lives to following Jesus are invited to join with us in this central celebration of Christ’s faithfulness. You may partake or abstain, according to your conscience. At this site, we usually partake as the plates are passed down the rows.

Offering

As part of our worship of God, we collect an offering each week.  These funds support the work of our church both locally and around the world in a variety of ways and we steward each dollar with great care and accountability.  You are welcome to contribute financially, but we do not want our guests to feel any pressure to give.  If you do choose to give and wish to receive a donation receipt for tax purposes, please use an offering envelope and/or provide us with accurate contact information.

Casual Atmosphere

We have a relaxed approach to church life and our services have a family-friendly feel. From our music (which is different each week) to our space (the whole building gets used) to the way people interact (lots of laughs), the goal is that everyone feels welcomed and comfortable.  Our dress code is very simple: dress however you want!  If you like to dress up, dress up.  If you like to wear sweats, wear sweats.  It is our desire that everyone feels welcome to be themselves when they come to worship God.

What About My Kids?

We welcome the presence of children in the service, but we also have children’s ministry programming for newborns through Grade 6 during the sermon.  Plan To Protect procedures are followed, so all the volunteers are screened, trained and aligned with our statement of faith and parents/guardians are asked to sign their children in and out of the program areas.

The toddler room and nursery are connected to each other and are located on the east side of the main foyer.  Classrooms for pre-school and elementary grades are located in the west basement.

  • Mark Wolfe

    Director of Youth Ministries -

    Mark was raised by Christian parents who put God as the main focus of their lifestyle and taught God’s character though example, but it was after the death of his older brother that he began to truly search for God in his own life. A year of studying and prayer led Mark to a solid faith of his own and hear God’s calling on his life. He fully gave himself to the Lord and was baptized.

    God has given Mark a passion and calling to be involved in the lives of the youth. During his time in Kelowna he was able to serve as an intern under the youth pastor at Willow Park Church and here at Grande Prairie Church of Christ he has served as a volunteer youth leader for our youth ministry. Mark is thrilled to continue his ministry among us and is excited to see what God has in store over the next few years as he pours into the lives of the teens in and around our church.

  • Elders Team

    Elders -

    Seeking to function as outlined in New Testament Scripture, our congregation operates under the leadership of elders. These elders are people of God, elected by our members, who with a great deal of prayer and wisdom and experience provide spiritual leadership and accountability for members of our church and our ministerial staff.

  • Church Board

    The Church Board -

    In addition to elders, our church members elect deacons and point leaders who coordinate and work with teams of volunteers. Together with the elders these individuals form our church board. The board exists to ensure compliance with government requirements, approve policy or financial decisions for the church, as well as provide a formal channel of records and communication.
