When you visit one of our Sunday services, you can expect to find a simple worship service that adheres to the teachings of the New Testament. We assemble together every Lord’s Day (Acts 20:7, Revelation 1:10), which is Sunday, to worship God by . . .
Praying: We are led by different men in our congregation (1 Timothy 2:1-8).
Singing: The whole congregation joins together in praising God in song without the use of musical instruments (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). In case anyone is unfamiliar with one of the songs, the words are available in our songbooks and also on a screen in front of the auditorium on Sunday mornings.
Taking Communion: Every Sunday, our members remember Christ’s death by eating unleavened bread and drinking fruit of the vine (Acts 20:7). We sit quietly for a few minutes and reflect on how wonderful it is that God loved us enough to give his own Son for us!
Preaching: We will enjoy a Bible lesson that lasts about 25 minutes (Acts 2:42; Romans 10:14). On most Sundays, Gary Davenport, our minister, presents these lessons, though occasionally a guest speaker will guide our thoughts. Each lesson will take a Bible passage and explain what it means and how it applies to our lives.
Giving: Each member of this congregation contributes weekly to the work of the church locally and abroad (1 Corinthians 16:2). We do not ask or expect our visitors to give anything in the offering.
We accept the Bible as the sole and complete authority that is all-sufficient to direct us in our faith, practice, and beliefs. Therefore, with the Bible as our guide, each of our classes are conducted by capable teachers who help to make biblical lessons and principles relevant and applicable to our lives today (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
You will find our classes to be very relaxed with welcoming questions and comments. You will never be asked to simply accept what is said outside of the Bible, but encouraged to take what you hear and test it against the truth of God’s Word (Acts 17:11).
