And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (Acts 2:42)
When You Visit Central Church of Christ
Worship is a privilege God has given us to express our deep adoration for His love, mercy, and power. We take seriously the opportunity we have to worship together. It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Central Church of Christ services. We want you to know what we are doing in these periods of worship.
A capella, congregational singing, is one feature of worship God desires. The New Testament teaches us to sing, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to edify each other and glorify God (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).
Prayer will be offered by one of the men, as he leads and directs all of our thoughts together (1Timothy 2:1-4).
A collection will be taken (Sunday) from our members as a means of supporting our work. Early Christians did this each Sunday, too (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). Visitors are under no obligation whatsoever to contribute to this collection.
The Lord’s Supper will be offered (Sunday) to all Christians in memory of the death and sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
A sermon will be preached that exalts the Word of God above the will of man. The speaker will point us again and again to the Scriptures as the inerrant, infallible word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). You are encouraged to use your own Bible and follow along. At the conclusion of the sermon, anyone wishing to become a Christian, or Christians desiring the prayers of the church will be given opportunity to do so.
We always welcome questions, so feel free to ask! If there is something about your experience at Central Church of Christ you want us to explain in more detail , we will be happy to do so.
Come and be a part of something special!
