We are the Friends Church of Grinnell, Iowa, a multi-generational church of people who love God and love each other. We are also a church who feels called to reach out to those who are un-churched and to do everything we can to help them both see and feel that we genuinely want them here at Grinnell Friends.
We dress casually and comfortably because we want people to focus more on other people rather than what they wear. We interact casually and comfortably because we are more interested in loving each other than we are in impressing others. Our music is mostly contemporary, but sometimes “ageless” as we enjoy together a great, old hymn of our faith. Our worship band seeks to lead us in expressing our love and faith through music. The sermon is from God’s Word – the Bible, and is focused on Jesus Christ. Having a relationship with our Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus Christ is our heart’s cry, not just religious activity.
Our Mission is to Exalt the Lord, Equip the believer, and Evangelize the lost. If you do not really understand what that means, then let’s just say that we are committed to TAKING JESUS TO PEOPLE, AND BRINGING THE PEOPLE TO JESUS!
We hope to see you here soon! Lead Pastor Steve Savage
September Scripture for Memory - 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
