Mark 12.29-31

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”

What is the worship meeting like?

Sunday morning Bible class includes classes for toddlers through adults.

Our Sunday worship assemblies are heartfelt but simple. This is a taste of what you’ll experience on a typical Sunday morning.

singingMusic

We sing together as a group without using musical instruments. This is an ancient tradition that helps unite us as a community, sharing our passion for God through sharing in song. We’re not professional singers, we’re just singing from our hearts. We invite you to sing with us regardless of your level of musical ability. We will understand if you choose not to participate in singing.

Prayer

Prayer is simply talking to God. Several times during our meetings someone will pray aloud as the rest of us pray silently. We pray in everyday language, although sometimes someone will use more formal language. You will not be expected to use any special posture (such as kneeling) or memorized prayers, and you won’t be asked to pray out loud.

Bible Study

We read from the Bible and have a lesson based on a passage from the Bible. If you own a Bible, we encourage you to bring it and follow along. If you don’t own a Bible or don’t have it with you, we have Bibles that you may use while you’re with us, and we’d love to give you a Bible as our gift to you.

The Lord’s Suppercommunion

We also share the Lord’s supper each week. This is an ancient practice started by Jesus with his very first followers. We pass around unleavened bread and grape juice reminding us of the body and blood of Jesus. You may participate or not, and no one will think any less of you either way.

Offering (Contribution)

Our members have an opportunity each Sunday to contribute financially to the church – visitors are not asked or expected to participate. These voluntary contributions fund monthly operating expenses; help those in need; support mission work and children’s homes; provide disaster relief; and promote other similar good works.

A Time for Commitment

At the end of the lesson, we invite those who are ready to do so to commit their lives to Christ. If you are one of those ready to make that commitment, you should come to the front of the room at that time.

To Honor our Guests

Visitors are asked to fill out a visitor’s card and drop it into the collection plate. If you have special needs and would like us to pray for you, or if you would like to arrange a one-on-one Bible study, note that on the card. At the end of the service, the cards will be used to introduce our guests. You will not be asked to come forward – just to raise your hand. We don’t want to embarrass you; we just want to meet you and thank you for coming.
