Matthew 18:20

Sunday Morning Service- 9:45 am.

If you come along on a Lord’s Day (Sunday) morning you will observe all those in the fellowship of the assembly sitting down around a simple table with a loaf of bread and a cup of wine, to carry out the request of the Lord Jesus Christ when He said “This do for a remembrance of me.” Toward the end of the service the bread is passed from hand to hand and each takes his own portion as a remembrance of the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was given for us to the cruel sufferings of Calvary. The cup of wine will then be passed in like manner; thus we remember the precious blood of Christ poured out at the cross for our sins. The apostle Paul could write in 1 Corinthians 11, “as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup ye do proclaim the Lord’s death until He come.”

As a visitor, not knowing the order and perhaps not known to any believers, you will be directed to a seat in the back (1 Corinthians 14:16) so as to observe the carrying out of this most solemn remembrance. No discourtesy is intended and all are welcome to “come and see” this primary scriptural function of a New Testament church of God.

It is our hope and prayer that all true believers will have the God-given desire to take their place in the fellowship of a scripturally gathered New Testament assembly. You may also observe the scriptural practice (Romans 16;1; 2 Corinthians. 3:1) of the reading of a “letter of commendation” concerning a visitor to the breaking of bread meeting. These letters are intended to “commend” a fellow believer from a distant assembly, or someone who has moved into the area and is unknown to the believers here, thus preserving the character and holiness of the assembly as well as the testimony to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are NEVER any public collections taken. Only those in the fellowship of the assembly bring an offering on Lord’s day morning, which is taken at the end of the service by the passing of a bag or box.

Sunday School- 11:45am

The gathering for children usually follows the breaking of bread at around 11:45. If you are a parent we would be happy to see your children as well as yourself at our Sunday school, where only the plain and simple Word of God is taught. The teachers take an individual interest in each child and seek to instruct them in the way that will lead to their salvation early in life and preserve them in a world of violence and immorality, that their lives might be for the glory of God. The Apostle Paul in speaking to his son in the faith Timothy was able to say, “...that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures which are able to make thee wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15). The Lord Jesus Himself said, “Let the little children come unto me” (Luke 18:16) Transportation can be arranged to pick up your child from home if within the general area of the Gospel Hall.

Sunday Evening Gospel Meeting- 6:00pm

All are urged to attend this most important meeting where the “Good news” of the gospel of Christ is preached primarily for the benefit of those who are not saved. The meeting will usually be shared by two men who, after reading from God’s word, will seek to present in a simple way the great need of every soul born into this world, to have a moment of repentance and conversion, a time when forgiveness of sins was received by trusting in the finished work of Christ at Calvary and the shedding of His precious blood for our redemption. There will never be any pressure by any to request a show of hands or coming to the front in an attempt to make converts, thus interfering with a work that is between the individual and God. Again, no collections will ever be taken at the gospel service.

Tuesday Night Bible Study and Prayer Meeting- 7:30pm

This meeting takes place on Tuesday night from 7:30 – 9:00 and all are invited to attend. The first half of the meeting is devoted to prayer, at which time different brethren will rise to pray and make their requests known to God (Philippians 4:6). The second half is for the reading and discussion of the Holy Scriptures, usually following a chronological order from the previous week of some portion of the Bible. The discussion is not a public forum but is limited to brethren in the fellowship of the assembly. Any questions you might have would be gladly answered after the service.
