GRM greeters and ushers are located in our lobby to answer questions and help you find a seat.
Please note because our building is located in the middle of Downtown Orlando we ask that you Please obey all "No Parking", "Truck Loading Only", and "No Church Parking" signage where posted. You are subject to towing if parked in these areas.
What can I expect at GRM?
We hope you'll have a warm and friendly experience! GRM is a 21st Century Apostolic church, and the GRM family is multi-generational, with a mixture of ethnic backgrounds. GRM worship services have a strong focus on the preaching of the Bible. Our music is a blend of old and new, traditional and contemporary. Our goal is to glorify God and exalt our Lord Jesus Christ.
What should I wear?
We enjoy a relaxed yet reverence-full atmosphere of worship at GRM and hope that you will feel comfortable coming to worship just as you are. Our focus is NOT on what you wear, but on engaging, encountering and responding to the relationship and lordship of Jesus Christ. Dress tends to be business casual, but there's always a range from ties to jeans. Our Sunday morning services tend to be a blended style of worship. Since our services are blended, you’ll see a wide blend of clothing styles – from suits and ties to polos and khakis to jeans and t-shirts.
What if I have a question once I'm at GRM?
If you have questions or need help at any time, look for GRM ushers and greeters wearing name-tags. They can help you. You can also get assistance at the Welcome Center, which is located in the lobby as soon as you walk into the building. If you want to ask a question, submit a prayer request, or learn more about GRM, here are the best ways to indicate your interest:
Visit the Welcome Center
Send a note via our Web site
Fill out a Guest Card (located at the Welcome Center) and indicate your need; you will be contacted by a member of the pastoral staff that week.
What time should I arrive?
Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before service starts. When you enter, you will be greeted by one of our greeters and they will offer you a worship guide. If you are a first time guest, please be sure to mention this to our greeters, and they will direct you to the Worship Center and/or show you where to sit.
Where should I sit?
Please feel welcome to sit anywhere you would like. We have no reserved seating, and are simply overjoyed to have you join us for worship.
How often do you serve the Lord's Supper? Who can participate in the Lord’s Supper?
GRM serves the Lord's Supper once a month (1st Sunday Evening), and we believe that the Lord’s Supper is a gift for everyone to experience. We view this special table as the Lord’s welcome table and invite you into our time of observing the Lord’s Supper. For the Lord’s Supper, we do not want people to “go through the motions” without remembering the Lord’s death. We want to remember the meaning.
How do I become a member of GRM?
