What you can expect

We get it.  Trying to find a church can be hard and intimidating. So, we want to try to give you as much information up front as possible to make it easier to learn if Guthrie Grove is a good fit for you.

We're a fairly traditional Southern church. We sing hymns with a piano and organ, but we also like to add in some contemporary songs (with guitar) as well. And, we appreciate special music and choirs. We have pews and enjoy socializing after the service.  All in all, we probably look a lot like a church you'd expect.

But, we also like to think that it's the people singing those hymns and chatting on the steps that really makes Guthrie Grove unique. Usually, we find that people first show up on our door out of curiosity.  But it's our people that make them come back.

So we hope you'll visit soon!  We've got space in our pews for everyone.

Opportunities to visit

We have three services each week where you can visit with as much or as little fanfare as you'd like: Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening.

Sunday morning is our largest weekly service. We meet in the sanctuary at 11am, but people usually start to find their ways into the pews just a few minutes before. If you're feeling extra ambitious, we also have Sunday morning Bible Study at 10am in the middle wing of the church. We offer nursery and Junior Church for the children during the main service.

Sunday and Wednesday evenings we have a study time for both adults and youth. We usually spend this time studying the Bible and taking a closer look at specific topics that would be helpful to living a life of faith.

Around the church

Guthrie Grove isn't a huge church, but it can be nice to know where you're going before you visit.

Sunday School happens in the classrooms found across the church. We have classes available for every age and provide classes that are accessible to everyone.  However, the church office and central classroom wing are only accessible with stairs.

Our weekly worship takes place in the Sanctuary. It is accessible by ramp or steps at the front of the church, or through the covered drop-off behind the church.  During services, we also provide a service for children across from the Social Hall.
