What is a drive-in church?
GCAC’s Drive-in Church is designed to offer a worship service to people in our region that might not be physically able, or might not be comfortable coming into our building. Some advantages of this outdoor option: it allows you to worship without wearing a mask; it helps parents who have young children (preferable to being in a worship center seat!); it gives those with health vulnerabilities the option to remain in their cars and still be part of a service with others.
Why have a drive-in church?
We believe that God would have us as a church do whatever we can to minister to people in our area. We also realize that the risks associated with the pandemic will remain for awhile and this gives us opportunity to meet together and give more room for others.
Will I have to get out of my car?
No, you will be able to stay in the comfort of your car for the entire service. However, if the evening is nice, you are welcome to sit next to your car in a lawn chair.
How will my family hear the service?
As you park in the parking lot of our church, you will tune in your car radio to 1500 AM channel. You will be able to listen to the service at an audio level comfortable to you and your family right on your car stereo, just like at the drive-in movies!
Who can come to Drive-in Church?
The drive in church is for anyone! We welcome people who might have a medical condition that prevents them from being around large crowds of people. Some people may have physical disabilities that make it too difficult to navigate a church facility. Parents with newborn children or children with unique learning challenges will benefit from this type of worship. Senior adults, college students, people who are on-call with their work, people on vacation, people staying in local motels, and families could stop by the Drive-in Church.
Will the Drive-in Church offer a time for people to contribute to the ministries of Grove City Alliance Church?
Giving to our church is for our church family. Please do not feel obligated to give as our guest. We encouraging everyone to give through our online platform during this time. However, it's up to you on how you would like to give. At the end of the service, you will be able to stop under the church carport and drop your offering off on the way out.
