Worship

Worship Ministry

This ministry is responsible for all aspects of the worship life of the church. Working with the Pastor, this Ministry not only coordinates the details of the Sunday service, but plans and executes special worship opportunities throughout the year. It is the responsibility of the Worship Ministry to enable you to experience and grow in your relationship with God.

The Worship Ministry of King's Grant Presbyterian Church oversees two Sunday  morning worship services (8:45 AM Contemporary Service and an 11:00 AM Traditional Service) as well as several vocal and bell choirs of various age levels. The music program is particularly strong and diversified. Nursery service is provided for both services as well as Faith Formation classes.  Communion is normally served on the first Sunday of each month, on Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve. All are welcome and invited to the table.

Worship is central to our lives. It is that time when, regardless of what else is going on in our lives, we put it all aside and come together for a single purpose--to worship our Lord. In worship we find common bonds. With one mind and one heart, we publicly proclaim our faith, give God our thanks, praise and adoration, confess our sins, pray for each other, and receive teaching and encouragement from the Bible for our spiritual growth.

CURRENT SERMON SERIES:

 JOY TO THE WORLD - Heaven and Nature Sing!

“Joy to the World,” a beloved Christmas classic, turns 300 this year. Composer Isaac Watt’s interpretation of Psalm 98 invites us to sing a “new song”–and it is a powerful cosmic performance of all creation being renewed and freed. Rather than “joy” being yet another word for “happiness,” we will discover that the depths of joy can be found especially in the midst of suffering, the work of justice, and the presence of compassion–all part of the coming of Jesus to this world and a message the world still so desperately needs.
