Church Of God of the Abrahamic Faith

Our Community We're a community of faith trying to demonstrate God's love by living like Jesus — a life of purpose, worship, and service together.

Places to connect at our church

At Guthrie Grove, we love to get together and enjoy doing life together. Whether it’s on Sundays or in the middle of the week, we know that finding and building lasting relationships is an important part of any community.

Below, you’ll find just a few of our scheduled times to meet. These are great opportunities for you to see what it’s like to be a part of Guthrie Grove and meet some of best assets — our people!

Our Community

In the Bible, the Bereans were a group of Macedonian Jews who eagerly embraced the apostle (teacher) Paul as he preached the good news of Jesus in his missionary journey. They supported his work and protected him when he was in danger. The Bible describes them as:”they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily.” (Acts 17:11)

It is this example that we try to instill in the lives of our youth – to seek out truth eagerly and apply it to their lives. From the nursery through college, we create opportunities for all our youth to learn and engage with Jesus’ teachings.

Our Preschool ministry is created to make a difference in the next generation that’s going to last a lifetime. We do this by emphasizing Bible stories, virtues, scripture, and a big point to take home.  We believe a lot can happen when church and home work together.

We offer opportunities during each of our services for young children (ages 4 – 8) to learn about that day’s message in an age appropriate manner.  We also have youth Bible studies where students can encourage one another and discuss how they try to follow Jesus in their lives.

Our Middle school and High school ministry is rooted in the Bible but translated to reach the next generation.  We realize we only have students for a short time, so our motto is “What do they have to know before they leave our youth group?”

The Grove Youth Fellowship meets each Wednesday night at 7:00 pm in the Grove Youth Room.  We have a time of worship lead by our Youth Praise Team.  Devotions, object lessons and other activities challenge students to make a positive impact in the church and community.  Students dismiss to Bible Classes designed for each age group to discuss stories from the scriptures and life application.

Our Community

Adult Small Groups

Discipleship (a church word for ‘growing spiritually’) is at the center of our adult opportunities.  We are in the process of incorporating Small Groups into what it means to be actively involved in our community.

Small Groups are small groups that meet on a weekly basis to “do life” together. It’s like a group of friends who intentionally set out to help each other be better and better follow Jesus.

Our Community

Sunday Worship Services

While we believe that we should worship throughout the week, we intentionally gather every Sunday morning as a community to give thanks, to challenge ourselves and each other to grow, and to encourage each other in our walk of faith.

Our worship style is inspired by three words: joy, hope, and application. We rejoice in the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. We renew our strength through our hope in him. And, we learn how we can better live out that hope each day.

While the Bible doesn’t give us a preferred style of worship, it is important for us to create a worship service that embodies the love and truth it offers.

We're guided by our values

W​hen we think about “church” at Guthrie Grove, we don’t want to be just another church. So we have to ask, “How will we become a church that matters to people?”

We believe there are seven principles that will keep us on track as a church. We call them our 7 Core Values. Our Core Values help us communicate and live out our purpose & mission as a church.
