About Garretts Mill Assembly of God
We are a passionate, Spirit-filled family of Christ-followers, vibrantly engaging God through contemporary worship, relevant Bible teaching, and loving fellowship. Our Sunday services, children’s church, small group Bible studies and informal young adult get-togethers all reflect and celebrate the love and grace that God has so freely given us.
Most people genuinely want to know God – it’s church they want to stay away from!
At GarrettsMill, our greatest desire is for you to experience a loving God, whatever stage of your spiritual journey you may be on, without any preconceptions you may have about “religion” getting in the way. Come see for yourself just how engaging and fulfilling – and fun! – church can be.
We are a passionate, multi-generational, Spirit-filled family of Christ-followers, engaging God and experiencing His presence through compelling contemporary worship, practical, challenging Bible messages, dynamic children’s programs, and loving, encouraging interpersonal relationships.
Our services are casual, yet reverent, focused on God and sensitive to His Spirit. Experience the presence of God during a time of engaging praise and worship. Be challenged by practical, pertinent teaching from the Word of God. Enjoy uplifting fellowship with loving, welcoming fellow worshipers.
God’s love for you is so great, we are confident that, given the opportunity, He will make Himself real to you. There is no pressure at GarrettsMill. You can feel free to participate in the service, or simply sit back and take it all in.
Come experience why others have ended their church search at GarrettsMill – where worship is from the heart, messages are compelling and relevant, and people can’t wait to get together again! At GarrettsMill you will both experience the reality of God – and find a family.
As a church, we are informal but reverent, contemporary in our worship but focused on God rather than on a performance experience, engaging in our teaching but still clinging tightly to the truth of God’s Word. We are definitely not your grandmother’s church, but your grandmother would like it here – just as we believe you will.
Our services begin with a time of Spirit-filled worship, using the best of today’s praise and worship songs to usher us into God’s presence. A practical, challenging message based firmly on the truths and principles of the Bible is presented. Times of prayer and informal fellowship are often interspersed during or following the service.
As a group, we are a welcoming congregation that has met in the Brunswick area since early 2016. At the beginning of 2019, we moved into our current location on Garretts Mill Road. Our group has spent the past year fully renovating the older church building into a cozy, contemporary country church, mingling the best of the traditional and the modern in our décor, as we do in our services.
We are ready for visitors, and the welcome mat is out. Consider this your personal invitation to join us one Sunday morning as our guest. Come see what we are all about!
As life gets busier and busier, it can become difficult to connect with others in a meaningful way. At GarrettsMill you will find a family of loving and supportive people. Our heart is to create a welcoming environment that allows each person to connect with others in an uplifting and encouraging way.
For families to function as families, to get to know and love and build up each individual member, they need to connect with each other more than just once a week. That is the purpose of GarrettsMill’s Connect Groups. Our Connect Groups provide an opportunity to get to know fellow Christ-followers beyond just a superficial level.
Our groups offer time for unstructured conversation with others in the group, whether a casual recap of last night’s ball game, or a deeper discussion about particular questions or problems you may be facing. No one is obligated or pressured to talk, but the opportunity to do so in a loving, safe and supportive environment is available.
Connect groups also provide times for prayer, with and for other members of the group, and for family, friends and the community. There is also a time of guided discussion-based Bible study, generally centered on the previous Sunday’s message, but with more breadth, more depth, and more focus on life application of the biblical principles presented.
For deeper fellowship, prayer and interactive Bible study, drop into one of our Connect Groups on a weekday evening. You’ll be welcomed, encouraged, and challenged in your faith as you develop strong relationships with others in the church family.
We love kids, and kids love our children’s church, with dynamic kids’ worship, Bible stories, crafts and games. Ministry head Carrie Rice, a preschool director by vocation, has both a huge heart for kids, and a huge amount of expertise in working with them. She and her team will have your kids laughing, playing and enjoying their time of learning about God and His great love for them.
Scripture exhorts us to lead our children into their own relationship with God, by both teaching and example. We consider it a privilege, an honor, and a serious responsibility to support your family by teaching and demonstrating God’s truths to your children, and helping to lay a solid foundation for a relationship with Jesus Christ during their formative years.
Each child who comes into our care Sunday morning will receive an engagingly-taught Bible lesson, reinforced with a craft or relevant activity. They will have the opportunity to participate in active, age-appropriate children’s worship. They will enjoy a snack, and plenty of time for fun and fellowship.
Our children’s workers use Bible stories, videos and other media to communicate basic principles of Christianity and practical age-appropriate applications to teach children how to carry a relationship with Jesus outside of the church building, into the world they live in.
During the “grown-up” service, GarrettsMill Kids have a blast discovering God’s plan for their lives in this safe and fun environment. Your kids are going to love it at GarrettsMill, and GarrettsMill is going to love your kids.
