Description of Meetings
The Lord’s Supper (Sunday 10:00 am to 11:15 am)
If you are not a Christian in the fellowship of a local assembly, you will be welcome to sit an area that allows you to comfortably watch and listen without obligation. You will not be asked to participate or to give a donation; afterwards we will gladly welcome any questions that you have.
It's a remembrance meeting
In the Bible, one of the gatherings of a local church is called the Lord’s Supper, or the Breaking of Bread. The purpose is to remember the death of our Lord Jesus who said, “Do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:24, 26). We hold this simple but vital meeting every Sunday, following the example that “upon the first day of the week (Sunday)...the disciples (early Christians) came together to break bread” (Acts 20:7).
It's a worship meeting
In 1 Corinthians 11:26, the Bible says, “As often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show (announce) the Lord’s death until He comes.” Therefore, one at a time, men will stand and thank God for His Son. Prayers and hymns sung by the congregation will be filled with worship for the Lord Jesus Christ and His work on the cross for our sins.
At an appropriate time a man will give thanks for the bread on the table.The bread is a symbol of the body in which the Lord Jesus suffered on the cross (Luke 22:19). The bread will then be passed around and each
believer in the fellowship will take a portion just as the early Christians in the New Testament did. Similarly, a man will thank God for the cup of wine, the symbol chosen by the Lord Jesus to represent His blood that was shed for our sins (Luke 22:20).
Then as part of the worship given to God, each member of the church fellowship can make a voluntary and private offering according to their desire and ability just like they did in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).
In the last few minutes of the meeting, a man will stand to read the Bible and speak further about the Lord Jesus. Then we will conclude the meeting with announcements of future activities.
Coffee and refreshments are served from 11:15 a.m. to noon. - a time to get to know us and ask any questions you may have.
Gospel Hour (Sunday 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm)
The gospel we preach is that “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day” (1 Corinthians 15:34).
At the gospel meeting, two men speak from a variety of Bible texts. After a time of congregational singing, they present a clear message about God’s way of salvation. In this meeting we emphasize the Bible’s call to repent from sin and personally accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Since this is an individual matter, no “altar calls” are ever held; however, personal conversation is always available should you desire it.
Prayer Meeting & Bible Study (Tuesday 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm)
This meeting is divided into two parts: the first 45 minutes or so is for prayer, and the remainder of the evening is spent studying the Bible systematically, chapter by chapter. The Bible study is opened with an overview, followed by exposition and practical application in a discussion format.
