How do we worship together?

Our Sunday morning worship consists of the following: Singing, praying, preaching, an invitation, partaking of the Lord’s Supper, and the collection of funds. The leadership roles in the church are performed by men.

Preaching

The preacher will deliver a Biblical lesson lasting about 20-25 minutes.

Singing

Since we follow the New Testament pattern, a cappella singing is the only music used in our worship.

The Lord’s Supper

Churches of Christ observe this memorial every Sunday. Unleavened bread and the “fruit of the vine”, which is grape juice, are passed separately to the congregation. You are under no obligation to participate in this or any other act of worship. You are free to do as you wish.

Offering

Another part of our worship is giving of our means. Our members have the privilege and the responsibility to give “as we have been prospered.” This contribution is the only source of financial support for the work of the church. Again, you are not expected to make a donation.

An Invitation

At the close of the sermon, the minister will “extend an invitation.” It is a time when people are given the opportunity to go to the front of the auditorium to express a particular need such as baptism. Others may go forward asking for prayers to help in dealing with problems in their lives.
