Grandview Church meets at the Mead Middle School Cafe, Sundays 9:30-10:45 am. Here’s what a normal Sunday looks like:
We start out with light refreshments, then we sing praise and worship music. Toddlers and babies can go straight to Grandview Kids if parents prefer.
After about 20-25 minutes of singing, kids through 5th grade are welcome to go to one of the classrooms for Grandview Kids, doing fun and educational activities based on biblical teachings.
After the singing and the kids leave, middle school and high school students remain in the Cafe with the adults for a relevant biblical message with application for daily living.
After the message is concluded we give an opportunity to worship through giving an offering, and then we close with one last song.
Parents can then pick up their kids, and everyone can stay around as long as they like; enjoying more refreshments and getting to know one another better.
We also offer other opportunities to grow and serve!
We offer small group Bible studies and Community Service opportunities during the week for everyone who’s interested.
During the school year, we offer middle and high school student gatherings during the week in a home in Mead.
Hi, we’re Bruce and Lisa Hendrich, and we came to Mead to start Grandview Church!
We have been married for 41 years (we married very young!:-). We have two grown sons: Brent (37), who is married to Christie, parents of our new granddaughter Ella, and Mark (32) and his wife, Rachel.
Bruce grew up in northeastern Colorado on a family farm and ranch. During his undergrad studies Bruce met Lisa, a native of Tennessee. Lisa is a registered nurse, and worked on a OB/GYN floor in a hospital for ten years. Since 1990 she has worked as a clinical research coordinator. She presently works in a medical research clinic in Boulder.
Bruce earned a BS in Missionary Aviation Technology and a MA in Ministry, both from Moody Bible Institute. Before entering full-time church ministry, Bruce trained future missionary pilots as a flight and ground instructor. Most recently, he was the senior pastor of Oak Street Baptist Church in Elizabethton, Tennessee, for 19 years. About three years ago, God began the process of calling the two of them back to Bruce’s roots in Colorado to plant a church for the unchurched young families along the front range of the Rocky Mountains north of Denver. They are settled into their new home in Mead, where they are building the foundation for their church plant, Grandview Church.
God has led them to many people in Mead who are eager to have a fresh, new option for church participation in their community. As they build authentic relationships with individuals and families in Mead, their small groups, missional activities and corporate worship services will be designed to make disciples who make disciples. By God’s grace they will become a church that plants other churches for the unchurched in Colorado, and beyond!
In April of 2018 Grandview celebrated its first birthday after beginning weekly, public worship gatherings at Mead Middle School. During their first year they have grown from a church family of about 40 to a family of well over 100 adults, students and children! They have seen God change many lives and have baptized 15 people in their first year! Please let us know if you would like to look into how you might be able to partner with them in this new ministry!
Hi, we’re Devin and Dianna Goins, and we came to Colorado to help start Grandview Church as well!
Born and raised natives of Alabama, through a fascinating series of Divine Appointments, God connected them with Bruce and Lisa when they learned Grandview was needing a permanent worship leader for their new church plant. They came out to Colorado the end of April 2017 in view of joining the church leadership team as Grandview’s permanent worship minister. They accepted Grandview’s offer and moved from Alabama to Colorado in June of 2017.
Since then Devin has not only lead the worship ministry at Grandview, he and Dianna have also led the beginnings of the student ministry! Devin works full-time as a sales leader for Fastenal in Mead, and Dianna is now a stay at home mom. In July of 2018 God blessed them with their first child, Lydia. In August of 2018 God led them to purchase a home in Mead where they can continue to build their influence and ministry!
Hi, we’re Tim and Katlyn Finch, and we’ve come to help Grandview Church reach more middle and high school students!
Tim is originally from California, and Katlyn from Missouri, and they arrived in Colorado in January of 2019. They’ve been married two years and have a baby daughter, Kennedy, born in May 2019. Tim and Katlyn were leading the worship and student ministry in a church near Joplin, Missouri when they felt the call to come to Colorado to help plant churches. After God connected them with Grandview, both parties sensed it was a match made in heaven (literally!). Tim is teaching high school English in Commerce City, and the two of them are both working with Grandview Students on weeknights and weekends. An accomplished musician, Tim also helps with the Sunday praise team. They both love the outdoors and look forward to enjoying all the recreational activities that Colorado has to offer!
