  “God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.”

These are words you will hear every Sunday at Groce. You can think of them as a pep talk before the sermon starts. Our purpose is to build the family of God through praising God, bringing others to Christ, teaching the faith, strengthening the fellowship, and sending forth in service. Just a few simple requests we ask of members and friends. To be part of the family of God is such a great feeling. We offer so many opportunities for you to participate. To begin with, we have two worship services on Sunday, 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. These are times to come together as a congregation and give thanks and praise to God. Through prayer, lessons and music we allow the Holy Spirit to flow through us. Both adults and children may join our music ministry, led by our Music Director and includes four choirs, vocalists and instrumentalists.
