How Long Are Your Services?
We usually gather for 75 – 90 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
Check out our Information Centre in the main foyer to learn more about our church ministries and events. Greeters will offer you a bulletin (filled with community announcements and contact information) when you enter the auditorium. Please fill out a connection card (inserted in each bulletin) 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.
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.
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.
