What To Expect On a Sunday Morning
Thanks for your interest in Christ Fellowship Church. We would love to have you join us for worship on any Sunday morning. Here are some things to expect when you visit our worship gatherings:
1. Expect a small, friendly congregation.
Because we are a church plant, we have a relatively small congregation and we love it. Expect to meet people and not slip in and out without being noticed. If you are visiting for the first time, you will be asked to fill out a visitor card. Don't feel any obligation to give during the offering. The service is our gift to you.
2. Expect contemporary music with deep, biblical content.
Our music style is contemporary with a band providing the accompaniment. However, our main concern is the content of the songs. We sings praise songs, hymns, modern hymns - anything with good, Christ-centered lyrics. Expect to stand (if you are able) for four to five songs.
3. Expect prayer and Scripture readings.
We value communion with God through prayer. During the service we will pray many times. Usually a pastor will voice a prayer for the things going on in our church, for other churches in the area, and for our community. We also value the public reading of the Word (1 Tim 4:13). We usually read rather long passages of Scripture. It's God's Word to man. Why would we not?
4. Expect to hear sermons series from books of the Bible.
Our sermons are most often expository sermons - that means we preach through books of the Bible, rather than on topics. Expect our sermons to last 30 to 40 minutes. The preaching of the Word is the climax of the worship service.
5. Expect to take the Lord's Supper.
The Lord's Supper is a special time when we remember the death and resurrection of Christ and proclaim his return. At Christ Fellowship we celebrate coming to Jesus' table weekly. Each week we remember his death, we proclaim his resurrection & return, and we celebrate the unity of the church. Expect to come to the front and take bread from one loaf and be poured a cup of grape juice.
6. Expect that we will love your children.
We believe that children are blessing from the Lord and a wonderful picture of how to receive the Kingdom of God (Luke 18:17). We provide child care for children under the age of six. We will take good care of your children and provide a good and beneficial time while their parents are in worship.
