What can I expect when I attend Free Grace? 

Q:  What can I expect when I attend Free Grace Reformed Church? 

You can expect caring, friendly people who desire to connect with others both visitors and regulars as they seek a relationship with God.  You can expect solid teaching of God’s Word in clear and practical ways, relating God’s Word to our daily lives.  You can expect to find somewhere where you can fit in, for you and/or your family.  You will find excellent programs for children and teenagers where they are learning, growing, and making a difference in the world around them.  There’s so much more; but I think you have an idea… 

 

Q:  How long are the services? 

Sunday morning services start at 9:30am and go about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes (depending on what is going on that day).  During this time we worship through music, fellowship with one another, announce what is going on, and teach God’s Word.  This gives us time after the service to meet and greet one another (along with some coffee, drinks and snacks). 

 

Q:  What is the music/worship like? 

We use both older and newer songs to connect others to God during worship.  We use organ and piano, and other instruments to draw people into God’s presence. We desire to celebrate and praise God and also to be still before God. 

We would like to invite you to come worship with us at Free Grace Reformed Church in Middleburg! We meet Sunday Mornings at 9:30.

Q:  How should I dress when I come to Sunday services? 

Dress is casual.  Some are in slacks or dresses and some are in ties and suits.  Whatever you are comfortable wearing is OK by us.  What is important to us is that you are here on Sundays connecting with God, other people, and dreaming of how God wants you to live. 

 

Q:  What about my kids?  Where do they go on Sunday morning? 

There is Sunday school for 3 year-olds through 12th grade. After the Worship Service the kids gather in our children and youth area (the basement) where your child sings with other children before going to their age-appropriate class to learn and have fun. 

Jr. high and high school students meet directly with their teacher and class on Sunday morning right after the worship service.

 

Q:  Where can I find a Spiritual Gifts Test so I can know my gifts?
