At Grace Harvest Baptist Church, we're always excited to welcome new visitors. We hope you'll join us for a service, and we want to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Here's what you can expect when you come to either our 9:00 am Sunday School or 10:30 am Worship Service.
Our church is located in the Redfield South subdivision (9821 S Redfield Drive, Amelia VA 23002), and parking is located behind the church. If you have mobility restrictions or young children to carry, feel free to use one of the spots closest to the door. We like to keep them free for visitors and people who need assistance. There is a wheelchair ramp next to the side doors of our worship center. During the Sunday School hour feel free to check your children into one of their classrooms downstairs. We have two opportunities during the worship hour. First, if your child is newborn to 3 years old then you can check them in downstairs as soon as you arrive. Second, if your child 4 years old to 4th grade then they will stay with you until dismissed before the sermon for their own time of instruction. (We will cue the dismissal on our front monitors)
Please don't worry about what you'll wear to church, for we truly believe people should come to God as they are. You don't need to dress up to get his approval--that comes through Jesus' sacrifice. Once you walk in the doors, you'll see that the congregation has all types of people in all kinds of dress. While a few people in the church wear ties, others like to remind them that Jesus never wore a tie. Shorts are as welcome as suits, and you'll see both.
When you walk in, find one of our greeters and introduce yourself. They're usually stationed at the doors and they will be happy to show you where everything is. They'll help you find the nursery, children's classrooms, and check-in kiosk if you have kids. Our greeters can also point you to the restrooms and worship center. If you have any questions about the service itself, the greeters are able to provide helpful answers.
Be sure to hang around after the service in the worship center. You'll have a chance to meet our pastor and many other people in the church. We'd also love to get to know you so you're a familiar face the next time you come.
