This ministry is responsible for all aspects of the
worship life of the church. Working with the Pastor, this Ministry not only
coordinates the details of the Sunday service, but plans and executes special worship opportunities
throughout the year. It is the responsibility of the Worship Ministry to enable
you to experience and grow in your relationship with God.
The Worship Ministry of
King's Grant Presbyterian Church oversees the Sunday morning worship service at 10:00 AM as well as several
vocal and bell choirs of various age levels. The service can be livestreamed on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.
The music program is particularly
strong and diversified. Nursery service is provided for both services as well
as Faith Formation classes. Communion is
normally served on the first Sunday of each month, on Maundy Thursday and
Christmas Eve. All are welcome and invited to the table.
Worship is central to our lives. It is that time when, regardless of what else is going on in our lives, we put it all aside and come together for a single purpose--to worship our Lord. In worship we find common bonds. With one mind and one heart, we publicly proclaim our faith, give God our thanks, praise and adoration, confess our sins, pray for each other, and receive teaching and encouragement from the Bible for our spiritual growth.
How often do you stop to give thanks? What do you give thanks for? This three
week November series will focus on what we might give thanks to God for in this
church, in our lives, and in our relationship with God. Living a life of
gratitude flows from a heart that has experienced God’s goodness. You will have
the chance to reflect on those things you’d like to offer thanks for and how
you might express your gratitude in some way. How can gratitude be a
powerful force in your life?
6 Giving Thanks for
KGPC 1 Corinthians 1:2-9; 2 Thessalonians 1:2-4 NIV

their acceptance of God’s grace, their faith, and their love. Today we give
thanks for this community of faith, King’s Grant Presbyterian Church. We will

people’s lives. It promises to be an inspiring service of personal testimonies!

13 Giving Thanks for
Life Romans 8:28; Philippians 4:6-7; I Thessalonians
Life certainly has its ups and downs. Yet, scripture says we are to give thanks
no matter what is happening in our lives. How do we give thanks in ALL
circumstances, especially the hard ones? Who are you thankful for in your life,
both in the past and the present? What are the blessings you notice in your
life and how will you express gratitude for them?
Reflection Question: What are you thankful for in your life? Who might you
express gratitude toward and how?
20 Giving Thanks to God for Divine
Gifts Psalm 107:1-9; Luke 17:11-19
This week we often focus on what we are to be thankful for, and sometimes
forget the One to whom we give thanks. We will explore the numerous reasons we
have to give thanks to God, both for who God is and for all God has done for
us. Whatever may happen in our lives, through it all we know that God is
good…all the time. That’s something to give thanks for!
Reflection Question: What are the divine gifts you are thankful for? How will
you live a life of gratitude in response to God’s grace and gifts?
