Worship is a Verb
Whether you plan to attend the Classic or Contemporary Worship Celebrations, WORSHIP is a VERB — an action word. Worship is not something that we attend and watch. At Grand View United Methodist Church, it is something that we DO. When we come together as a community of believers, we focus on building relationships with God and with God's people. We are here to put faith and love into action. God is not here to serve us, we are here to serve God. Our mission statement sums it up: LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, SERVE THE WORLD.
Family Style Worship
Christians Renewed Every Wednesday (CREW) is our midweek worship experience for everyone–individuals, families, kids, young or mature–everyone joins together for food, fellowship, and small group learning. We eat together at 5:30pm, and then all help clean up and get the room ready at 6pm for youth-led worship music & a short family-centered message from Pastor Tom. At 6:20pm, we break into small groups: Nursery, Preschool, Elementary Youth Group (Gr.K-5), MS/HS Youth Group (Gr.6-12), and Parents Group, and engage in fellowship, connecting, and learning from 6:30-7:30pm. Nursery is available from 6:20-7:30pm for ages 0-3, and Preschool Fun for ages 4-5, so the entire family can come together for a perfect time of spiritual growth during the busy week. CREW begins again Sept. 4. We can’t wait!
