Music is perhaps the nearest art to the great art of theology. It is a powerful and appropriate means of worship, and as we seek to make our music and our worship excellent to God, our music ministry is very important. Martin Luther said, “The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music.” We welcome singers and instrumentalists to join us in the worship of Almighty God.

Our Clapham Circles take the shape of monthly dinner gatherings for 8. In the great tradition of Clapham Circles, our Circles are a network of friends, bound together by shared faith and love for one another, who spur one another on in their zeal for the Lord and His work. Fall Clapham Circles meeting now. New groups for spring will form in January!
Our youth (6th-12th grade) seek to glorify the Alpha and Omega as they journey from guilt to being "saved by grace, alive with gratitude, and bound for glory." Grace. Gratitude. Glory. These are the 3 Gs. Our youth center their time together around the Word of God in Sunday School each week. Youth discipleship is so important to us that our Senior Pastor devotes his time to teaching this very important class on Sunday mornings. And whereas we value the age-integration of all of our ministries as a church, we recognize the value of gathering with peers from time to time. Youth gatherings have a variety of themes and are hosted monthly either as large group gatherings or as smaller home groups. Check Upcoming Events at the bottom of our home page for the next event!!
Children's Church is geared toward ages 3-6. These preschoolers and early elementary students join us for the first half of worship and are dismissed at the Doxology for Children's Church where they will enjoy a rich journey through Scripture with "The Gospel Project" including stories, activities, a snack, and a craft that all enforce each weekly message - all of which point to Christ and the covenant promises of God.
Our women are involved across all ministries in the church, but we also enjoy time together in frequent informal times, mentoring relationships, and celebrations for new moms and new brides. In addition, our ladies cherish time together in several churchwide women's gatherings every year including our traditional Spring Tea and our Mugs & Muffins gatherings.
FIRST SUNDAY LUNCHES
First Sunday Lunches are a favorite part of our hospitality ministry, hosted on the first Sunday of each month after the Lord's Supper is served in morning worship. Each month brings a new theme, and members and visitors alike are welcome!
GREENSBORO PREGNANCY CARE CENTER
As Christians we recognize the inherent value of life in unborn babies and their mothers - both made in the image of God. We long to see the lives of both cherished in love and mercy. Thus, we are regular supporters of Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center through our time, our people, and our finances.
ROOM AT THE INN
Room at the Inn provides comprehensive care for homeless pregnant women during their pregnancies and after the births of their babies. In addition to meeting their physical needs, training and counseling in a structured environment give these mothers the tools they need to find hope and make a home for themselves. All the proceeds from our annual Troubadour's Christmas Concert go to support this ministry.
