We realize that these changes will require each of us to sacrifice some of our personal comfort and be risk-takers to make room for those who God will bring to be part of our community. This is part of being mission minded and desiring to see His church grow.
How is the morning going to change?
10:15 am Attridge Electives
Another of the adjustments we will be making to our Sunday schedule is providing Attridge Electives at 10:15am, in between the two Sunday services. Our hope is that this will provide more options to our congregation.
A Discussion Elective allowing for interactive dialogue related to the teaching of the Sunday morning service frequently facilitated by the person who preached that morning.
A Family Elective consisting of family oriented worship, Bible stories, skits, activities and various media methods for communicating the virtuous life God desires us to live. Our family elective is not a drop off program, so parents attend with their children. This elective is the PowerUp program we have offered in the past.
A Lecture Elective studying a book of the Bible taught by a qualified instructor. This elective will be similar to the LIFEtime lecture classes we offered in the past.
A Topical Elective providing a time of study of a selected theme. Various options of topical study will be provided throughout the year.
With the new schedule starting in 2019, you can choose to attend the first service and then go to or one of our Attridge Electives, or you can relax at home in the morning and have a nice brunch with your family or friends before arriving at the church at 10:15am for one of our Attridge Electives.
Our two services will be virtually identical: featuring the same worship team, the same songs, and the same sermon delivered by the same pastor.
So Lets Do It!
Starting on January 6, 2019 our services well be at 9:00am and 11:00am with Attridge Electives for all ages in between the two services at 10:15am.
We encourage you to spend time discerning who the Holy Spirit is asking you to invite to Forest Grove. God fills rooms when we faithfully engage His mission. He entrusts people seeking Him to churches that are ready for them–and share His passion to seek and save what is lost.
