People are often hesitant to attend worship services at an unfamiliar church.
To help alleviate any apprehensions you may have regarding this congregation, we would like to explain what you can expect when you visit with us at the Vegas Drive church of Christ.
Order And Reverence
You will not be confused by many people speaking or praying at the same time. Good order will prevail at every service (I Corinthians 14:33). You will observe one of the brethren leading the congregation reverently and quietly in prayer ( I Timothy 2:1-4).
You will find no tendency toward entertainment with organ or piano music. Like the first century Christians, we will engage in the singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19). The words used in our songs will be easy to understand (I Corinthians 14:15). God has commanded the sincere praise of His people to come from the heart (Colossians 3:16).
Kindness and truth
All visitors are greeted with equal courtesy and kindness (Acts 10:34-35, Galatians 3:28). You will find no exclusive pews for any person. You will observe that the Bible is the textbook to which reference is repeatedly made in our classes and sermons. You will never be asked to accept what some man teaches about the Bible; we want you to read the Bible for yourself to see whether those things are so (Acts 17:11).
The lord's supper
Each Sunday, you will observe the congregation eating bread and drinking the fruit of the vine in memory of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:26-29). We do this on the first day of every week, like the Christians in the first century (Acts 20:7).
