Mission Statement

We offer a deep sense of home that is warm, welcoming and accepting. Worship expresses our gratitude for God's unimaginable grace. We seek to bring every age into discipleship, nurture all God's people, listen for God's call in the midst of our lives, witness to the presence of God's Kingdom in our world as we engage in mission, and to 'see Christ in the face of others.'

Summer Worship Schedule
We will start our Summer Worship Schedule on Sunday, May 24 (Pentecost Sunday), with one worship service at 10 a.m. This allows us all to gather together and worship together as one body. And in celebration of the birth of the church, we invite you to wear RED on this day. The Summer Worship Schedule will continue through Labor Day (September 6).
Watch 'em grow...  Can you share a flower or vegetable plant? Time to divide your perennials or new seedlings? Bring your extra plants to Heritage Hall this Sunday, May 24, for Caring for Creation's 'Plant-Pass-A-Long'. Then after worship pick up something new to take home and...watch 'em grow!

Child registration has closed for this year's Vacation Bible School. But we still need youth and adult volunteers. Please consider donating your time and talents to enhance our chilren's Christian education. Sign up on our new website, www.granvillevbs.com to volunteer.

Mission Opportunity
It's almost time for Share the Harvest, our mission to bring fresh produce to the hungry. Starting in June, each Saturday at the close of the Farmer's Market (12 PM), we collect donations from the farmers and take the produce to the Salvation Army and YES Club. If you would like to participate in this mission, please sign-up on the bulletin board in Heritage Hall.
Witnesses of Faith
As we discern where God is leading us, members of our church family have graciously agreed to share their stories.
