Weekend Praise Gathering
Each weekend, Christians gather together for a time of fellowship and praise. The venue often changes — we typically meet together in our homes, but sometimes we meet in a park or other public venue, and sometimes we meet in a pavilion or under a shade tree down at the beach. Times are subject to change, as well — typically, we gather around 9:00 to 9:30AM on Sunday mornings, but we may choose to meet on a Saturday or Sunday evening for a sunset communion service. Some weekend praise gatherings may include more than just one area small-group; and sometimes we have out of town visitors, or even members of different churches in the area, who gather together with us.
Our weekend praise gatherings consist of simple worship, as exemplified in the New Testament. We sing, pray, and share scripture. We also remember the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by celebrating the Lord’s Supper–Holy Communion–together every weekend. And, usually, we bring snacks, drinks, and finger foods to share and just enjoy talking, playing, and being together for a little while following our praise time. YOU are always invited to join us for our weekend praise gatherings – just be sure to check the calendar and/or shoot us a quick message to find out exactly where we will be gathering, and what time!
Every week we meet together at various locations, but typically in one of our homes, for mid-week fellowship and Bible study. We usually start about 6:00PM with a light evening fellowship meal–everyone brings something to share–followed by a time of in-depth Bible conversation from 7:00 to 8:00PM. Visitors are always welcome at our mid-week fellowships and we may have Christian brothers and sisters present at mid-week who belong to other small-groups, or who may have weekend obligations at various local churches, and therefore cannot be with us for our weekend praise gathering. So, this makes our mid-week time together even more precious!
Daily Bible Learning
We believe in equipping all God’s children, young and old, with a strong faith that can only come from in-depth Bible knowledge. We want every child of God to be able “to stand strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might” (Ephesians 6:10) — no matter what trials or temptations may be leveled against us by the adversary. Even when we stumble and fall along the way–and especially at those times–we want all God’s children to be able to know how much they are loved both by Him and by us; so that they can regain their footing and continue to walk close with the Lord. We, therefore, strongly advocate for our online “Daily Bible Reading” program wherein we all read the same passages of scripture, and make online comments, each day. We then encourage people to come together during the week (as time and opportunity permits) in “very” small groups of two or three people, to talk about our daily Bible reading. By making available this resource, and strongly advocating for daily Bible learning, we are enabling God’s children to become well-informed, independent thinkers who can stand strong in the faith and be used by God to make a meaningful difference in the hearts and lives of others for eternity.
Are You Ready?
Have you been reading your Bible and growing in your understanding of how much God loves you? Are you thinking about giving your heart and life to Christ and being “born again” into His eternal family? Well, as Ananias said to Saul of Tarsus (who later became the Apostle Paul)… “Why do you delay? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16).
Don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule a time when we can get together for a little visit; and then take you to the waters of baptism wherein you will be “buried with Him through baptism into death,” so that you, too, can “walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4, NASB). Whether you live nearby, or thousands of miles away–we have contacts all around the world–there is a Christian nearby who would absolutely love to help you become a part of God’s forever family!
