"It's the people who make this church a wonderful place. No one pretends to be perfect, everyone is open about their struggles, and all are accepted with open arms."
While the vision of LGCC for worship is to be a church in which every generation encounters God in spirit-led worship, our ministry is first to the Lord, then to the people. Our goal is to turn “song time” into “worship time” blessing and ministering to God. We want people so excited about the Lord and the church that they are eager to join us on Sunday morning, get involved in serving, and bring their friends to church.
Every Sunday we offer our 8:45am Sanctuary Worship Service. On most first Sunday's of the month both services (8:45 and 10:00 am) are held in our historic sanctuary and are a place for meditation, contemplation and prayerful rest. You'll enjoy worship of the Lord with traditional hymns and contemporary music led by the worship leader. You will experience a softer presence of God in His sanctuary.
Other than the first Sunday of the month, our 10:00 am service is held in the Community House and is an informal, relational, expressive service with audio-visuals, dramas, hymns and contemporary music. At Long Grove Community Church we practice open communion. People are not required to be members of our fellowship to participate. We ask only that they know Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
After service please feel free to introduce yourself to any member of our ministry staff -- we would love to meet you! Join us for coffee and community after service in the Community House.
Thursday Night Prayer Meetings are held every Thursday (except holidays) in the Community House from 7 to 8:00 pm. Everyone is welcome. We would love people from the community to know that they can come and be in God’s presence without the trappings or performance of religion. Please visit our Prayer Ministry page for more information.
We practice both Believer Baptism (twice a year) and Baby/Child Dedication (on request.)
