I Am New Here
Welcome to Grant E-Free
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website! It has been an honor to pastor this church for over 17 years and see how the Lord continues to bless our church body. “In Christ Alone” is the heartbeat of everything we strive to do and be in the life of Grant E-Free. It all comes back to Jesus and without faith in Him alone, we have no hope.
Whether you are nine or ninety, single or married, I believe you will feel right at home serving and worshiping at Grant E-Free. Take some time to look around the site. If you have any questions about our church, feel free to contact us. If you visit, please make sure to find me and introduce yourself. I would enjoy meeting you!
What to Expect
We’re a multi-generational church, where the 8, 28 and 88-year-old matter. No matter your age or background, there’s a place for you and your family here. Expect to feel right at home with regular folks who desire to grow in their relationship with Jesus. At GEFC, you will find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere full of authentic people, contemporary worship, and relevant, compelling preaching from the Bible. Our Sunday morning service is an hour and a half of worship and preaching, followed by a half hour of fellowship, and then our Sunday School and Adult Discipleship classes.
The music we sing at Grant E-Free is a blend of old and new…we love both contemporary praise and the doctrinally rich hymns. Our live band consists of guitars, drums and keys and they create a good, musical mix for all ages of worshippers.
A typical service finishes around 10:30 am and then we head to our Fellowship Hall for light refreshments and a time of fellowship. At 11:00 am, we begin our Sunday School and Adult Discipleship time – an opportunity to engage all ages in more intimate discipleship and relationships with one another.
We are much more concerned about what’s going on inside of a person than what clothes they wear on the outside. Some folks dress up, most wear jeans. If it makes you feel better, our pastors rarely wear suits or ties. Just come as you are!
Preaching at Grant E-Free is expositional…which is a fancy way of saying that the message clearly explains the original God-intended meaning of Scripture, making it easy for us to understand and apply to our lives. The pastors generally preach through books of the Bible but on occasion, will preach topically. Our sermons are designed to move the heart and mind to know God and desire Him. All preaching, regardless of the passage or topic, points to Jesus and His gospel.
Kids are a big deal at GEFC. Children ages 4 and up are a part of our 9:00am worship service. At 11:00am, they join up with other kids their age for Sunday School. We want your children to see how God’s Word fits in to their lives, to learn how to talk to Him, and to build long-lasting friendships.
We love babies and young children! We provide a Nursery for children from birth to age three that is staffed with vetted volunteers to help watch your most treasured gift while you worship and attend Sunday School. We also have a Mother’s Room with plenty of comfy chairs, a fully stocked baby changing area and its own private bathroom.
