Welcome

 

A sincere welcome!

Visitors and members can expect a heartfelt welcome at the door. Visitors will be given a visitor card that you may complete.  If you would like more information about our local church please include your contact information. The information is used to make additional contact to answer any questions or to help with any needs or concerns. You may place the card in the collection plate following the Lord’s Supper.
A gift for you
Each visiting family will receive a loaf of homemade banana-nut bread. Members bake this bread ahead of time so we can extend a warm welcome to you. During announcements you will be asked to raise your hand so one of our youth can bring you a loaf of banana-nut bread.

Collection of contributions

As a visitor you are not expected to contribute when the collection plate is passed. However, it is appropriate to place your visitor card in the collection plate. The members set aside money from their family budget to give each Sunday. This money is used to help maintain a place for us to meet and fellowship with each other. It is also used to support individuals who teach the Gospel and to help fellow believers in need. Once again, the New Testament is used as the pattern for what is appropriate for the local church to support.

Acapella singing

 

Our local church does not use instrumental music during our assembly. This may be unique in the religious world today, but it represents our desire to follow the pattern of the first century church. The New Testament does not have any examples of churches using instruments during assemblies.

The Lord’s Supper is observed every Sunday

You are welcome to participate in remembering the death of Jesus through the Lord’s Supper. I Corinthians 15:26 says, “For as often as ye eat of this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord’s death till he come.” Unleavened bread is passed around for all to eat and represents the body of Jesus. After this the fruit of the vine (grape juice) is provided to all to represent Jesus’ blood. The purpose of this is to remember the sacrifice Jesus made for man.

Bible-based preaching

A 25-35 minute sermon is preached each Sunday. The lesson will always be based on the Bible. The lesson begins by reading a scripture from the Bible. 

Our mission

Our mission is to live by the simplicity and purity of the New Testament and to encourage others to do the same. Jesus' teachings are to be our teachings. God's Will is to be our will. We are to be a living testimony of the power of God to save each individual through the blood shed by Jesus the Christ. We believe this and therefore desire to share this with others.
