At 9:00 am, our Adult Sunday School hour begins with a time of prayer requests and corporate prayer. We are currently watching a DVD series called “Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis.” Come and join us!
For those who have preschoolers to children in the third grade, we do provide opportunities for them to learn a Bible memory verse, a Bible song, and a Bible story & lesson appropriate for their level of understanding. We do, however, believe that parents should reinforce biblical instruction learned on Sunday with their children during weekly family devotions. Therefore, they should strive to include their school-age children with them in the various Sunday services. They can thus begin to teach them, by precept and example, to respectfully attend to public worship in the presence of God and actively listen to God’s Word as it is explained. We believe this strengthens families when worked at together under God’s grace.
At 10:00 am is our Coffee Fellowship Break before the start of our morning service. This is a great time to experience that “koinonia” (or “fellowship of the saints”) spoken of in Scripture and ask any questions regarding the Sunday School lesson or previous service.
At 10:30 am we begin our Sunday Morning Worship. We highlight various missionaries and hear brief stories of persecuted brethren around the world. Then we pray for them, for us, and for our community. We have public readings in the Old and New Testaments followed by prayer regarding what we have heard. We enjoy congregational singing of the hymns throughout our service and provide an opportunity to give to the Lord’s work in our tithes and offerings. We conclude the latter portion of our service with an expository Scripture lesson and close with a prayer of thanksgiving to our Sovereign God. Pastor Jeff is preaching through Paul’s Letter to the Galatians. Again, come and join us!
After the morning service, many of us stay and enjoy a mini-potluck meal and fellowship until the start of our Sunday Afternoon Study at 4:00 pm. This, too, is a great time to really experience the “communion of the saints” and learn how we can encourage and build each other up in our “most holy faith.” It is an excellent opportunity to ask questions about what the Scriptures teach.
Our current study is on the Heidelberg Catechism from 4:00-5:00 pm. We’re seeking to “grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ” by building up our understanding of certain biblical truths and their interconnectedness with other doctrines throughout Scripture. Come and grow with us!
“The wicked is a very coward, and is afraid of everything; of God, because He is his enemy; of Satan, because he is his tormentor; of God’s creatures, because they, joining with their Maker, fight against him; of himself, because he bears about with him his own accuser and executioner.
The godly man, on the contrary, is afraid of nothing; not of God, because he knows Him as his best Friend, who will not hurt him; not of Satan, because he cannot hurt him; not of afflictions, because he knows they come from a loving God, and end in his good; not of the creatures, since ‘the very stones in the field are in league with Him;’ not of himself, since his conscience is at peace.”
