What to Expect About…

Worship Service

At DeerGrove, we view worship as a conscious effort to constantly have God at the center of our lives. Our contemporary style worship service includes preaching of God’s Word, reading scripture, singing, and sharing our story in community. Worship songs, to express our thanks and offer our praise, are both contemporary and traditional (with a contemporary flair). Expect to hear music worship led by guitar, drums, piano and bass guitar along with several vocalists. The reading of scripture is always part of our service and allows us to meditate on God’s word. Preaching provides application of the Word to our lives today. Post service coffee and hospitality time allows us to get to know one another on a deeper level and to encourage one another.

Children’s Ministry

We value the entirety of the Kingdom of God and enjoy an intergenerational focus while investing in the lives of those in our church body, our community, and our world at large. If you join us on the first Sunday of a month, you will experience our Intergenerational Service. For this service, our first through fifth grade children remain in the service rather than moving to their children’s ministry classes. On intergenerational Sunday, you will experience all ages leading the congregation in worship.  On all other Sundays of the month, children from nursery through fifth grade begin their time in the sanctuary until they are dismissed to their children’s ministry classes with a blessing from the congregation.

Attire / Clothing

While you may see someone “dressed up” for Sunday service, most attenders wear casual clothing on Sunday mornings such as slacks, jeans, tops, sweaters, and even shorts during the summer months. DeerGrove is a place where we come as we are and feel comfortable in worship.

The Church Building

DeerGrove is located at the edge of an industrial area which may lead a visitor to think the church will be cold and uninviting. What you will find is exactly the opposite. As you step inside the church, you will find a warm and inviting space designed for visitors and regular attenders to feel relaxed and comfortable!
