What To Expect

While our weekend worship service does look a little different from time to time, here is what you can always expect at GPEH:

A Warm Welcome – We do everything we can to make you feel right at home. We’ll have members ready to help you find your way around, and plenty of food to share.

 A Blend of Families, Singles, & Students– We believe that every person is a valuable contributor to the body of Christ, so we avoid segregating the church into ages and stages as much as possible. We love to have children in our service with the adults. Children are never to be put in the back so we can “worship”. Jesus himself said to let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them. We offer a “family room” that you are free to use if you or your children ever need to stretch, etc., but we never demand that you use it…the room is for your convenience. In fact, it has a live audio/video feed of the service so that you can still hear and see everything that is going on in the service. We produce an interactive Children’s Worship Guide so that kids aged 4 and older can participate in the service and understand their value to the church body.

 Great Music with Solid Content – We have a full band that plays everything from new songs to classic Christian hymns. We aren’t bound to a particular style or genre, but we are bound to songs that teach good theology and exalt Jesus.

 Expository Preaching – Whether we are teaching through a book of the Bible (most of the time) or preaching a topical series of some kind, we study the Bible verse-by-verse to understand it and apply it to our lives. What is most important is not what any one man thinks, but what God has revealed in his Word.
