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. However, during Covid restrictions, our service is virtual at 10:00 AM on the Youtube channel.
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.
Advent Worship Series:
Our Summer Worship Series: Love Carved in Stone: A Fresh Look at the Ten CommandmentsDid you know that the word for “commandment” doesn’t appear in the Hebrew Scriptures? Instead, the law is summed up in ten “words.” These prohibitive wordsare imposed on us to restrict us, or so we think. But what if the words God carves on stone tablets were words of love?
