Worship Ministry


In everyday life, we face a choice: to cling to God and choose to worship Him, even when it hurts, or be overwhelmed by the troubles and hurtful circumstances and start magnifying them. We can choose to be overwhelmed by the love and beauty of God himself. At Long Grove Community Church we want to be the kind of worshipper who will absolutely refuse to be discouraged or distracted by the circumstances or the problems around us in our quest to glorify God. We all have a call on our lives, which is to know God. 1 Corinthians 1:9 (NIV) says, “God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

We don’t know where you are today in your relationship with God, but we’d like to tell you that there are deeper and more intimate levels. You can never know God well enough, but you can raise your hunger for Him, His Word, and the Living Word, Jesus. 

While the vision of LGCC for worship is to be a church in which every generation encounters God in spirit-led worship, our ministry is first to the Lord, then to the people. Our goal is to turn “song time” into “worship time” blessing and ministering to God. We want people so excited about the Lord and the church that they are eager to join us on Sunday morning, get involved in serving, and bring their friends to church.

The planning of worship services is focused on the word preached in the sermon. We use different styles of music to compliment the message. On most first Sunday's of the month service is held in our 160-year old sanctuary and is a place for meditation, contemplation and prayerful rest. You'll enjoy worship of the Lord with hymns sung with our 150-year old pipe organ and contemporary music led by the worship leader with piano accompaniment. You will experience a softer presence of God in His sanctuary. 

Other than the first Sunday, service is held in our our Community House and is an informal, relational, expressive service with audio-visuals, dramas, hymns and contemporary music. You’ll worship God with our piano, keyboard, electric guitars, percussion instruments, etc. You will be led in song by our praise team. People are free to clap and raise their hands in praise. At Long Grove Community Church we practice open communion.  People are not required  to be members of our fellowship to participate. We ask only that they know Jesus Christ as their personal savior. 

You can enjoy coffee and fellowship after service in the Community House. Childcare and youth programs are available every Sunday in the lower level of the Community House.
