If you would like to experience a grounded, reverent, and inspiring worship service, we hope that you have found the right place! Our worship is simple and is based on the New Testament.
We pour our hearts into songs as we sing together acapella style (Colossians 3:16). You will probably be familiar with some of the hymns, and are invited to join with us and sing. Don’t worry if you are not an opera star! Our goal is to praise God and encourage one another, and the whole-heartedness is more important than the tune.
Men in the congregation will lead us in prayers (1 Timothy 2:1-4). This is an opportunity for our family in Christ to gather together and share our thoughts, needs, and concerns with God. If we can help you by including your own needs in our prayers, please let a member know. You can also write them on the “Help Us Get Acquainted” card found in your visitor’s packet (which you'll receive when you come for a visit) and place the card in the collection basket or hand it to a member.
There will be a sermon that is centered on God’s word. Our goal is to be sure that each idea is taken directly from the Bible, with a clear scripture reference given to you. Feel free to take notes and write down any questions that you may have; we’d be happy to discuss them with you. The speaker won’t push his own opinions or politics - he will simply “read in the Bible and help us to understand the meaning” (Neh. 8:8). We hope that the tone is positive and hopeful - while also being realistic about God’s expectations for us all.
The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, will also be served. The New Testament teaches us that Christians, also called members of the Lord’s church, are to do this on the first day of every week (Acts 20:7). If you do not wish to participate, please feel free to simply pass the serving trays to the next individual.
We will also take up a collection, as we have example of in 1 Corinthians 16:1-2. As our honored guest, please don’t feel any responsibility for this. You can cheerfully pass the basket to your neighbor, knowing that we are glad you came to simply investigate the worship for yourself.
We hope that you will leave our assembly with a desire to learn more about God’s word, to seek answers to your questions, and to determine how you would like to include God in your life. It would be our pleasure to be a part of your personal truth-seeking journey!
