OUR WORSHIP

 What can you expect when you worship with us?

  • You can expect worship that is decently and in order. "Let all things be done decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40). When God's people assemble, there should be no confusion since "God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints" (1 Corinthians 14:33). We do our best to maintain order and reverence to God throughout our worship, and to provide a God-focused worship experience edifying to everyone present.
     

  • You can expect congregational singing. "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord" (Colossians 3:16). Each service a song leader will direct the entire church in singing praise to God. You won't find any musical instruments or a choir since neither are found or encouraged in the first century worship services. You are welcome to sing along with us, or you can simply listen and be encouraged by Christians blending their voices together for God.
     

  • You can expect prayers. "Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving" (Colossian 4:2). Prayer is our personal communication to God, and each time we assemble ,men lead the congregation in prayer. Our prayers are expressions of thanksgiving, praise, and petitions to God. If you have a prayer request that you'd like us to pray about, we invite you to let us know about it. Prayer is our 24/7 connection to God.
     

  • You can expect a weekly observance of the Lord's Supper. "Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread..." (Acts 20:7). The prevailing reason for assembling on the first day of the week is to reflect and remember the sacrifice of Jesus, just as the early church did. The Lord's Supper serves as a weekly reminder of this sacrifice. The unleavened bread (flour, oil, and water) and the fruit of the vine (grape juice) are emblems that symbolize the body and blood of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). When you visit, you are not expected to partake of this memorial, but we do want everyone to understand why we observe the Lord's Supper every week.
     

  • You can expect a congregational collection. "On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come" (1 Corinthians 16:2). God has always expected and required His followers to give of their blessings. In the New Testament, we are to give freely and from the heart on each first day of the week. We do not expect or require any visitor to put anything in the plate when it is passed. The responsibility of supporting the work of the local church resides solely on those who are a part of it.
     

  • You can expect a challenging and uplifting message from God's Word. "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans 10:17). Our faith is based on God's Word, so we ensure that only His Word is taught each time we assemble. Our minister presents lessons that challenge us to think spiritually about our current circumstances in life while still remaining true to what the Bible says. We invite you to hear and learn God's Word so that you may grow in your faith.
     

  • You can expect an invitation to salvation, repentance, and/or prayer. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). During the close the lesson, a brief invitation will be extended for those who may have any spiritual needs. If you have not yet begun your journey in Christ through baptism, you can come forward to be “born again” (John 3). If you have been an unfaithful Christian and looking to come back to God, you can come forward and turn back to God (Acts 26:20). If you are struggling in your faith and need prayers of the church, you can come forward and ask for those prayers (1 Thessalonians 5:25). This invitation is not just limited to the close of lessons, but stands open for anyone at any time.
