Following the example of the churches in the New Testament, we meet together on the first day of each week (Sunday) to worship God (Acts 20:7). A typical worship service includes several prayers, spoken from the heart by men of the congregation; we sing a number of hymns a cappella (that is, without musical instruments) since we believe that the early church sang without instrumental accompaniment (Ephesians 5:19); we take the Lord's Supper (unleavened bread and grape juice) to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26); we take up an offering from our members to support the work of this congregation (1 Corinthians 16:1-2); the Bible is read publicly by one of the men of the congregation; a sermon based on a Bible passage or topic is preached to instruct and encourage the members of the congregation in their Christian lives (1 Timothy 4:13). Visitors are always welcome at our worship service.
