We Are Looking For More Musicians

Being a musician in our church is a delight. There's nothing more rewarding than leading people in song who love to sing. And Sovereign Grace Church loves to sing.

We make music for the glory of God.
We make musicians who glorify God.

Our aim on the worship team is to make musicians who exhibit "undistracting excellence" as they offer their talents to bring God glory and build His church. Musicians who get maximum joy when they hear God's people sing.

If you have musical talent, we want to hear from you.

If you are a member or a regular attender pursuing membership, fill out the form below and we will be in touch about having you audition for the team. The commitment is for 1 year beginning in September.

*The deadline to sign-up is August 4th, so please fill out the form as soon as you can.

Second Tuesdays of the month starting in September. Space is limited. Register here.

Zac's Testimony
IMG-5919.JPG

Everything we have belongs to God. We want to be people who live like our lives are not our own. How we spend our money is a huge part of it. It's why we have a Money Management Course.

Zac is one of our most recent graduates from the course. On Sunday we heard how God used it to help him grow in stewarding his finances. Here is what he shared: 

Les and Sue Card do an excellent job hosting the class. Each week they opened up their home for us to meet, and each week they were reading and filling out the homework along with us as if they were doing it for the first time. I really appreciated their openness to describe the financial lessons they have learned over the years and to share their ongoing pursuit to honor God financially.

Early on in the class we all began monitoring our spending, and I was struck by the goodness of the Lord’s provision on a regular basis. Seemingly mundane things like paying rent or buying groceries became opportunities to praise God for taking care of my needs. It has also been a helpful tool for me to check my heart and ask if my desires align with the Lord’s.

I became reinvigorated to seek new ways to give and to experience the joy of giving. It is truly an expression of worship to the Lord to give generously and though I feel like there is still lots of room for me to grow, I have felt that joy in new ways as I have made incremental changes in my giving.

The class also offers hope rooted in the gospel for those who are in unstable financial situations. In poverty and in riches the Lord is with us and the Biblical principles taught in the class are always applicable. I highly recommend the Money Management class to you. Our money can be a spiritual tool that we use for His glory.

If you're interested in joining a future class, let us know.

Christianity Means Community

"Christianity means community in and through Jesus Christ."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Community Is Not A Buzzword

Christians need one another. There's no way around it. God intends to use other Christians as a primary source of comfort, guidance, friendship, and growth. Community isn't just a buzzword for us.

A Concrete Expression of Community

Small Groups are our concrete expression of community. It's where we focus our attention on the "one anothers" of Christianity. It's where we go to be helped in our Christian walk and where we go to help others. It's not the only way to do it. But it is our way.

You're Invited

If you are already a part of a small group, praise God! But if not, we want to extend an invitation. Come and pursue godly growth with us. Head here and fill out the form. We'll be in touch ASAP.

Training Future Church Leaders

We want to train the next generation of pastors and leaders in Orange County. By doing this, we get to play a part in the work that God will do in our county for years to come.

A big part of our training effort is the Theology Course. This is an intense, 18-month theological program. Eight men are currently enrolled. They are reading a bunch, writing, and being stretched intellectually.

PRAY FOR THESE MEN.

Their March meeting is this Thursday via Google Hangouts. Pray that their growth in knowledge would increase their love for God. Pray that they would be better equipped to serve the church.
