THE LORD’S SUPPER
Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 11:00 am
In this meeting, the church worships God for sending His Son to die for our sins and remembers the death of Jesus Christ. In the Bible, this meeting of the church is referred to as “the Lord’s supper” and “the Breaking of Bread” (1 Corinthians 11:20, 33, Acts 2:42, 46, Acts 20:7, etc).
This meeting is reserved for participation by those who are members of this church, and for those who are well known to us. You are very welcome to attend this meeting and will be seated in an area for observing the service. This allows you to comfortably observe, without obligation. You will not be asked to participate, partake of the emblems, or to give a donation. No offense is intended by asking visitors to observe and not participate. This is a temporary accommodation which is consistent with the practices of the early church (1 Corinthians 14:16-25). This practice gives a visitor the opportunity to become familiar with the practices and beliefs of this church, and at the same time permits us to fulfill our scriptural obligation to protect the church from potentially harmful influences (Acts 20:29, 1 Corinthians 5:11).
IT'S A TIME TO REMEMBER.
The purpose of this meeting 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 special meeting every Sunday, following the example in scripture that “on the first day of the week the disciples came together to break bread” (Acts 20:7). In 1 Corinthians 11:26, the Bible says, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
IT'S A TIME TO WORSHIP
There is no pre-planned program for this meeting, other than to carry out this remembrance of our Savior. The service may include quiet moments of reflection, times of congregational singing, and many heartfelt prayers of thanksgiving to God. One-by-one, members of the church will stand to offer a remembrance of Jesus Christ’s death to God, thanking Him for sending His Son to die for our sins. The prayers, hymns, and even the quiet moments are filled with worship for the Lord Jesus Christ and His work on the cross for our sins.
At some point in the meeting, 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 final minutes of the meeting, there will be a short message from the Bible, after which it will conclude with announcements and a final prayer.
Refreshments are served at the conclusion of this meeting and we would be glad for the chance to meet with you and to answer any questions you may have about this service or about the church.
Sunday mornings from 11:30am - 12:25pm
We believe God calls us to care in a special way about children. Jesus rebuked His disciples for believing He would be bothered by children who wished to come to Him, and for keeping children from approaching Him (Luke 18:16). This is just one of the ways we know Jesus had a special interest kids.
Jesus said “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them for to such belongs the kingdom of God.”
Sunday Sunday school begins at 11:30 am when the whole church meets to sing children’s songs with the young people. At 11:55 am, the children go to individual Sunday school classes and the adults remain in the main auditorium for a message from the Bible. Sunday school classes are available for children from pre-school through high-school ages.
Sunday school lessons are Bible-based and may include stories, memory work, games and crafts, all designed to help the young heart to learn about God and about salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
