the churches of Christ Salute You Romans 16:16
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God —
this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Acts 2:42; Colossians 4:2
According to biblical pattern found in the New Testament, worship consists of principles & practices underlying the assembling of ourselves together to worship God in Spirit and Truth (Hebrews 10:24-25)
On the first day of every week (Sunday), each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. 1 Corinthians 16:2
After service we tend to ‘mingle some' to visit and catch up on the ‘goings on’ in our lives.
The children also enjoy the moments playing with each other. Forming strong bonds and ties are very important in God’s family.
Our children know each other, know us and we know them. Importantly, we all know God and are known by Him.
We start off the morning with some children’s songs. It helps get us all going and provides excellent interaction between the children and adults, as well as preparing our minds and hearts for the following bible study and children’s classes.
Following the children’s songs we turn to studying God’s Word. Study usually lasts about 35-45 minutes. There is an adult class plus both children’s and teenage classes. We welcome discussion and comment.
After bible study comes worship. Our service brings the New Testament worship of the first century to life in the 21st century. We faithfully endeavour only to include what can be found in the pattern and teaching given in the New Testament, just as the first century would have done—and did.
Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 1 Timothy 4:13
The Lord's Day!
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:19-20. Interesting that 'make music in your heart' in the original Greek means. 'to pluck the instrument of your heart'.
On the first day of the week (Sunday) we came together to break bread. Acts 20:7
Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage with great patience and careful instruction. 2 Tim 4:2; 1 Tim 4:13
