More information can be found about Sunday School here and Children’s Ministries here.

The Main parking lot is location on the west side of the church with overflow parking available to the east. The west side of the church has a barrier-free approach. There are entrances with carports at both parking lots.

Worship Service

The worship service begins in the sanctuary at 10:30 am and normally lasts an hour.

Before the Service

People often gather about 10:15am in the fellowship hall to greet one another, grab some coffee, and visit, filing into the sanctuary about 10:25 am.

Service Contents

Our worship services are just that: a time of worship together as a church family. Here are the different ways we worship during a typical Sunday morning.

  • Praise through song (various times throughout service)
  • Announcements
  • Call to Worship – A designated “worship leader” shares something to ready our hearts for hearing God’s voice.
  • Tithe/Offering boxes are provided in two places at the back of the sanctuary.
  • Time of Testimony – Once a month, a microphone is passed to those who want to share a testimony of praise with the church family.
  • Congregational Prayer
  • Sermon
  • Sending/Benediction

Communion

Communion, the Lord’s supper, is held monthly. Bread and juice are passed and we partake as one family.

Anyone who professes Jesus as their Lord and Savior is welcome to participate. You do not need to be a member of Locust Grove.

Special Music

Occasionally, there are special musical offerings. Adults and children participate with singing, instruments, and sometimes short skits!

Personal Prayer/ Anointing with Oil

If the pastor feels called, he will have a time at the end of the sermon for those who need extra prayer and anointing with oil.

Nursery

There is a nursery available for children through age 3. It has plenty of toys, an egress window, bathroom, changing table and is staffed by volunteers from the congregation.

Mother’s Room

A room for mothers with infants is located near the sanctuary. You can use this room for feeding your baby, changing a diaper, rocking a fussy one, or letting them nap. There is a changing table available that is stocked with essentials as well as a restroom. The room has a TV that can be turned on to view the service.

Fellowship Hall

Here at Locust Grove we love a good carry in meal! We celebrate often with our church family following the service with a meal. If you are visiting and we happen to have one, we would love for you to join!
