Sunday Morning Worship
Profile Age-wise, we cover the spectrum from infant to elderly. In attendance, we range from 12-28 in our 8:15 a.m. service and from 90-115 in our 11 a.m. service. In dress you can find anything from jeans to suits (but mostly dress casual).
Early Worship: We begin our Sunday morning at 8:15am with a service that's a little more contemporary. We have a couple every other Sunday to play and sing for us and on the other Sundays we use I-Worshop videos for our worship music.
Sunday School: At 10:00am we gather in small groups for Bible instruction. We have groups for all ages. We have three adult groups that meet at this time. Our Stewards group, taught by Marlin Duncan, meets downstairs and uses a traditional Sunday school literature that is also used by our Seniors group, which is taught by Rhonda Ramage and Jim Mitchell, adn they meet upstairs. We have another group,(Truth Seekers), that meet upstairs and is taught by David Griffey. The focus of this group is more of an apologetical in nature. They are presently studying the book of Genesis.
Worship: At 11:00am we gather in our sanctuary that can seat about 250 for worship. In this service we have a choir that is made of various ages, including many youth.
We begin our 11 am. service the first Sunday of each month with our Kids Korner. Our pastor, Bro. Eddie, shares a short Biblical truth with the children (ages 2 through 5th grade). The children are then dismissed to go to Children church (ages 2-5) and Jr. church (Grades 1-5). Both our Children and Junior church kids meet downstairs. We also have a nursery for infants from birth to 2 years-old.
Sermons Preaching at CGBC is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around 25-35 minutes. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Multi-media (Projector and screen), and an outline with fill-in blanks are provided in your worship guide to help you be involved and more greatly benefit from the preaching of God's Word.
Wednesday Nights: Each Wednesday night we have a meal available from 6-7pm. There is no charge (Donations are appreciated). At 7:00pm we have an adult Bible study upstairs in the sanctuary. The youth (Jr. High and High School kids) meet up stairs in the back of the building. We also have a ministry for the younger children which meets downstairs.
