WHAT TO EXPECT

 
     We gather on Sunday, the first day of the week, as the early church did in the New Testament to praise the name of Jesus.   During worship services we normally have a separate service for children that is more age appropriate for them and allows parents to focus more on worship and the lesson. We sing a cappella, using our voices (without instrumental accompaniment) to praise & worship the Lord.  There will be prayers led by various men of the congregation as well as a sermon presented by our preacher. We also observe the Lord’s Supper every Sunday taking unleavened bread and fruit of the vine (grape-juice) which represents Jesus’ body and the blood he shed for forgiveness of our sins while on the cross.  We join with Christians around the world to remember and to celebrate all that Christ did as he gave his body to be sacrificed for us.  
     A collection is taken each week as our family is responsible for its bills & to support our many ministries.  You are welcome to give if you would like, but are certainly not expected to as our guest. We usually do this after communion as a matter of convenience. There are no assigned seats, and as a visitor you are welcome to participate in as much or as little as you are comfortable with. At the end of the service an invitation will normally be given where individuals may request to place membership with us, ask for prayers or confess sins, or to be baptized. You would not be expected to make any of these requests unless you choose to do so. We would appreciate it if you would give us a little time before or after services to meet you because we are famous for being friendly and love to meet new people.
