What to Expect



We gather for worship every Sunday morning at 10:30 am. We encourage you to come as you are. Our atmosphere is informal and personable while remaining reverent and joyful before our God. Our lives, ministry, and services are governed by the authority of God’s Word; therefore, we believe in Bible-centered, expository preaching, and teaching as the foundation of everything we do. In our music, we value the historic traditions of the church while embracing the best that current hymn-writers have to offer. You will hear classic hymns and modern favorites weekly. We partake of the Lord's Supper every week, and members of the body of Christ anywhere are welcomed to join us. We encourage families to worship together, so you will hear the joyful sounds of children playing and occasionally crying. We know that you will find our church family welcoming and authentic. We take the word of God very seriously, but we do not take ourselves too seriously. 

We would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have.


We welcome you and encourage questions as we help you figure things out. It is our hope and prayer that Grace Fellowship will be a place you can connect relationally as you are encouraged to explore the truth of the Bible. We don’t have it all together either; what unites us is that we are broken and that we recognize that our identity, salvation, healing, and hope are in the person and work of Jesus Christ.


At Grace Fellowship, we desire to encourage and equip families on Sunday morning and throughout the week. We believe that parents are primarily responsible for educating their children in the ways of the Lord (Dt. 6:6-7), and our desire is to supplement—not compete with or replace that objective. With this in mind, our preference is to support parents and children in participating together in the life of the Church, especially on Sunday mornings. However, we also recognize that for families with younger children, this is not always possible. We also recognize that children mature differently, so we will work through those expectations with each family. 

On Sunday mornings, families will join together in singing, praying, reading Scripture, and hearing what God is doing in the life of the church. During the sermon, the children who are able to remain with their parents are encouraged to do so. Even if they do not understand everything, they pick up more than we give them credit for, and we have resources for families to follow up with what they’ve learned after service. For the younger children (ages 1-5 recommended), there will be an age-appropriate classroom for them during the sermon. Participating in this class is up to the parent’s discretion.

Childcare is also offered during our Wednesday Night Family Bible Study. Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have by emailing children@gfsanford.com or click here for more information about Children’s Ministry.

We believe wholeheartedly that we are the church everyday, and aim to live life together, as the church has always done (Acts 2:42-47). The Christian life is seven days a week, and we see being involved in each other’s lives as essential to encouragement and spiritual growth. That is why we meet formally and informally throughout the week, gathering for study, fellowship, and prayer. We also have studies and discipleship groups designed for men and women. We learn, laugh, and cry together as we grow in the image of Christ. Please check our calendar page for more information. And when you visit, we encourage you to plan on coming early and staying afterward to meet people and fellowship, and find out more about other opportunities.
