We endeavor to follow the New Testament pattern as we worship God on Sunday, the first day of the week (Mt. 28:1; Acts 20:7;  Rev. 1:10). Our acts of worship are as follows:

Prayers will be offered to our Father in heaven, through the resurrected Jesus Christ. Jesus now reigns over His kingdom, the church, from heaven (Mt. 6:9; 1 Tim. 2:5; Rm. 8:34; Jn. 18:36; Col. 1:13,14; Rev. 1:6; 3:21).

IMG_6549The singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs from the heart to praise God and edify one another will occur throughout the worship period. Man made musical instruments will not be used. It is the way the first century church worshipped God. Each participant in the worship is encouraged to praise God in this way (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16,17; Heb. 13:15).

 

The Lord’s Supper will be served. It will consist of unleavened bread (a cracker-like composition) and the fruit of the vine (unfermented grape juice). Every Christian is encouraged to participate as we give thanks and remember our Lord as He instructed (Mt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 11:23-24, 25-26, 27-29; Acts 20:7).

An opportunity to contribute monetarily is provided for the members of the congregation. Visitors or non-members are not asked to contribute to the local work of the church. If you choose to contribute it will be entirely your choice (1 Cor. 16:1-2; Acts 20:35; 2 Cor. 8:12; 2 Cor. 9:7).

terry-preachingListening to the word of God being preached offers opportunity for encouragement, hope, faith building, exhortation, instruction in righteousness and rebuke. “Amens!” are welcome and encouraged. Christianity results from teaching publically and privately. You may also request a free personal Bible study. (Acts 20:20; Rm. 1:15-16; 2 Tim. 4:2; Ps. 106:48; Rev. 22:21).
