What To Expect

We're very glad you're considering to visit, and hope your time with us will become invaluable to you. We invite you to read the information below or click the GUEST FAQ button to find out what you can expect on your first visit to our church

Here is what you can expect at Abounding Grace





Child Check-In

In order to provide a safe and secure environment for your children, please register your children for Children’s Ministry.  Please visit the ‘Children’s Ministry Visitor Registration’ area to fill out a form for each child.  You and your child will be issued corresponding numbers which will ensure your child will only be released to you.  Please note: our registration closes at 10:20.  **This procedure was updated these past months to implement a more safe and ‘parent friendly’ system that will simplify and speed up the process. Click to view more info on our check-in.



We have a wonderful staff of people who are here to serve you. They provide loving care for your baby so you may enjoy the service without distraction or diversion. Your children are cared for by people who have a passion for babies and toddlers. Nursery begins at 10:00; please check-in prior to 10:20. For further information click here.


Children’s Ministry

Children from 3 years old to 6th grade will be dismissed after family worship to their classes for age-appropriate games, crafts, worship, skits, object lessons, multimedia presentations, etc., which reinforce  their Bible lessons and learn about God’s love and grace for them. Approved and trained 7th graders may help, as scheduled by staff. Click here for more information.



Praise & Worship

One of the things we value and enjoy at Abounding Grace is the opportunity to sing praises through songs that reflect God's goodness and grace in our lives. Feel free to sing along as the words are projected onto the video screens, or silently listen and let the words affirm God's love for you.



Tithes and Offering Time

As a guest, feel no obligation to give during this time. Giving is something we do every week as followers of Christ. Generous and cheerful giving is a tangible opportunity for us to place our financial trust in God as we honor Him with our weekly tithe.



Pastor Jay is an engaging and anointed teacher of God’s Word.  His teaching encourages, equips and strengthens the body of Christ.  He is easy to understand and has a true heart for people.  His greatest joy is seeing people accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior as they realize their need for Him.  Seeing lives change and watching Christians grow in the knowledge of God and His character is most rewarding.  Pastor Jay has the teaching responsibilities from week to week, but other staff and even our elders are given opportunities to teach on relevant topics from time to time. We always use Biblical references with practical applications that will benefit you in your everyday journey. Missionaries and an occasional guest speaker also spice up our menu!



Prayer teams are available each Sunday after the morning service to pray with whoever desires it.  Prayer is offered in the front of the Sanctuary .



After our service, we encourage you to stop in the lobby and enjoy a cup of coffee.  Look at the materials displayed in the Information Center for additional information as you discover that you matter to God!
