Word and Sacrament
In this world with so many changes, you can count on few things to be constant. Worship at River of Grace includes two of those things: Word and Sacrament.
Week after week, we dive into God's WORD by hearing different Bible lessons, and then hear a sermon relates to everyday life. Worship is creative and upbeat, and it is sustained by the promises of God revealed to us in Scripture, and we learn together what it means to be a Christ-follower in daily life. Our world needs more witnesses of God's love in the world, and Scripture feeds and fuels us for that purpose.
We also celebrate the SACRAMENT of Holy Communion every single week. Holy Communion, also called the Last Supper or Eucharist, is God's way of helping us remember Hiim with more than just our heads. We have an open table and that means every person -- no exclusions -- is welcome to partake in the gifts of bread and wine to invite the life of Christ into our daily living. We offer a First Communion class for children when they are in first or second grade to help them learn more about the sacrament; and our Pastor shares a communion devotion each week to help us get our minds and hearts around all that this gift means.
We also celebrate Baptisms regularly at River of Grace. We baptize anyone who is willing and who hasn't yet been baptized. We baptize babies because God's love comes to us no matter what. We baptize adults who haven't yet been baptized to help them and the community around them trust that they, too, are part of God's family. In baptism, we believe that we are joined to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord, and that the world we live in every day won't be the last word for any of us.
