What should I expect when I attend?

The Building: Our building contains rooms for bible classes and an auditorium for the worship.  Feel free to sit where you would like.

Individuals:  We are people from all walks of life.  We all have the same mentality, “work together to get to heaven when we pass on from this life”.  Let us help you in your walk.

Singing:  The first century Christian sung without instrumental music and we follow that same standard.  We sing and make the melody with our hearts to God (Ephesians 5:19).  We don’t worry about what we sound like, but instead what we sound like to God.  Our hearts are what He hears.  Come and sing with us, we have plenty of song books in our assembly.  

Prayer: During our time together, we follow a pattern also found in the first century worship, offering up prayers to God and making our requests known to him.  (Philippians 4:6, 1 Corinthians 14:15; Acts 2:42).  Come and pray with us.

The Lord’s Supper: On every first day of the week when we come together to worship, we also partake of the Lord’s Supper.  This example was instituted by Jesus on the night He would be betrayed and continued each first day of the week (Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 11:23-25), by the early church.  

Contribution:  A collection is also taken every Sunday, as we have example from the early church (1 Corinthians 16:1,2). This is not a solicitation of funds from the visitors.  Visitors are not expected to give; the scripture teaches us that members of the local church were the ones that gave on the first day of the week.  

Message:  You will hear a message taught from the pulpit.  This message helps to encourage us and provides an opportunity to see where we may be weak in our spiritual lives.  At the end of the message, we offer an invitation.  The invitation is extended to anyone who may need help in their spiritual lives or ready to make that next step by being baptized and becoming a Christian.  The front row is open at that time for anyone who would like to come forward.  (Acts 2:37-44)
