  Our Worship

Perhaps you're wondering what you can expect to see if you visit one of our worship services. 
Because of our dedication to Jesus, we want to worship in the way that disciples of the first century worshipped.
The New Testament shows us what the apostles of Jesus taught the early Christians to do in order to serve him
properly.  ( 1 Corinthians 4:17)

When you visit us on Sunday, you will see that we sing praises and pray to God.  We partake of the Lord's Supper to commemorate
and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We listen to Bible sermons and receive instructions from God's word.  A voluntary collection is taken to carry on the work of the congregation, this is a responsibility of our members. 
Visitors are not asked or expected to give, but you may if that is your desire . 

You can expect for the service to be Biblical in practice and reverent in tone. There will be:

  • Singing
    Just like the first century Christians we read about in the bible, we will sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19).

  • Prayer
    Time will be spent praying to our Heavenly Father (Acts 2:42).

  • The Lordís Supper
    On Sundays we will partake of the Lordís Supper as Jesus instructed us to do on the first day of the week (1 Cor 11:23-29).

  • Giving
    On Sundays a plate will be passed around the congregation for our members to give a contribution from their earnings (1 Cor 16:1-2).
    Visitors are never asked or expected to give, but you may if that is your desire.

  • Preaching and Teaching
    There will be a gospel sermon (Acts 20:7). We strive to have our sermons apply to everyday living. You are welcome to ask questions following the worship service.

We also assemble on Sunday morning prior to our worship and Wednesday evening for Bible study.  In all of our classes, everyone is encouraged to ask questions, make comments and to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  (2 Peter 3:18)

Worshiping God together in these ways encourages all of us.  It fills us with spiritual strength and motivates us to live for Jesus through the week.  
When you visit one of our services, we will do our best to make you feel welcomed. 

It is not our intention to make you feel uncomfortable or embarrass you in any way. 
Someone may ask you to fill out a visitor's card so we may thank you for your visit. 

We hope you will join us at your next opportunity and be our welcomed guest.
