We want you to visit with us and to feel welcome when you do. We are a small congregation and it will not be difficult for you to meet many of our members on your first visit.
You may expect to be treated with respect as a guest. You will not be embarrassed in any way. Nor will you be singled out for public attention or called upon to participate in any way. And you will not be solicited for a contribution as the work of the church is supported by our own members.
Because Jesus desires that all who worship do so in spirit and in truth (John 4:24) there are certain acts of worship that you will observe us participating in. The things you will see us do are those activities that have been authorized for Christians in the New Testament.
Upon the first day of the week (Acts 20:7) , each Lord’s Day, the Lord’s Supper is commemorated (I Cor. 11:23-26).
We praise God by our collective singing as we have been instructed to do in Col. 3:16 and Eph. 5:19.
Prayers will be offered in praise to God, on behalf of others, and with thanksgivings (I Tim. 2:1-3).
Each member of the church has an opportunity to give as God has prospered him (2 Cor. 8:12; 9:7).
We accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16-17) and follow it as our only guide in religious matters. For this reason the Bible will be the basis for all of the classes and preaching. “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching” (2 Tim. 4:1-2). The emphasis throughout will be upon the necessity of man’s obedience to the Word of God (Heb. 5:9).
After their classes our children are with us during our worship in the assembly. We are striving earnestly to instill in each child a respect for God. Their being with us in worship will accomplish that.
An attitude of joy and thanksgiving should be apparent from those who love God and one another.
