What to Expect When Visiting Us

Guest: We trust your visiting experience will be a enjoyable, comfortable, friendly experience. Our typically Sunday services a church family consist of opening with our mission statement, prayer, signing, scripture reading, a lesson, prayer requests, giving and communion. There are no reserved seats, so feel free to sit anywhere you choose or required to give. Wednesday evenings is bible study (currently on conference call and via Facebook). 

  

Prayer: During the worship service several of the men will lead the congregation in public prayers.
Acts 2:42 "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Singing: We will sing several songs and hymns together, led by one or more song leaders. These will be sung a capella. 
Ephesians 5:19 "speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,"

The Lord’s Supper: We partake of the Lord’s Supper each Sunday, following the pattern of the first century church.

Acts 20:7 "Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight."

In partaking of the Lord’s Supper we remember the Lord’s death until He comes again.

1st Corinthians 11:23–26 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Giving: We give for the work of the church each first day of the week, realizing that God has richly blessed each of us. 

1 Corinthians 16:2 "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."

Bible Study: We engage in Bible study, primarily through preaching of the Word, but also through Bible reading and direct teaching.

2 Timothy 4:1–2 "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching."

At the close of the lesson, an invitation will be extended to any who wish to respond while the congregation sings. To learn more about Christianity, to become a Christian or to ask for prayers of the church, please make your need known. If don't feel comfortable at that time please reach out to our Minister or contact us.
