Old Testament and New Testament Together
Our worship services are intentionally unpolished. We allow lots of time for prayer requests and praises. Our worship leaders are all volunteers. We are not sloppy or haphazard, but it is ok, if on occasion, there is an “oops” having to do with music or sound or order or decorum. Crying babies don’t ruffle our feathers. We choose our lives to attract others to our Lord rather than our worship service. Therefore we serve family style in our community. Our witness, our acts of kindness and good deeds happen as our families take the initiative to serve all week long. Sunday then becomes not the day of labor that our rest has led to, but the day of rest that our labor has led to.
Family Night is a time to get together and study, encourage, and have fun. Bring the whole family! This is a time when teaching and example can be passed to the generations. This kind of interaction doesn’t usually happen on Sunday morning.
At Family Night we have the time to build bonds within the body of Christ that nurture faith and love. Sometimes the emphasis is study, and sometimes it is more fellowship, but it is always good for building each other up in our Christian walk.
This year we would like to offer a buffet of Lessons plans for your family to choose from. Of course you can always choose your own lessons to suit your family’s needs.
*The 260 Lessons from last year
*Bible in 1 year (read & discuss)
*Bible in 2 years (read & Discuss)
*Joann Petersen’s Hymn Studies
*Joann Petersen’s Devotionals
*Any other lessons of your choosing
We don’t send the kids downstairs for “children’s church” or nursery. We love to see the whole family worshipping and encouraging the body together. We think this is the best way for families to pass on the legacy of church gathering. We also believe that children are able to pick up on much more than they are usually given credit for. But since we have all generations present in our services, we set two priorities:
1. Our music is blended.
2. Our service includes a variety of features to keep the attention of even the smallest listeners.
These features may include:
*Personal or Family Testimonies – (live or video)
*Greetings from: Friends of the church, shut-ins, travelers, etc…
*Family Style Testimonies
All of these will be done to praise God and to encourage each other.
Each month our church delivers meals for 5 days. The recipients are all from West Concord and they are happy to see your smiling face along with their hot meal. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Dave Andrews.
All Lessons are complete and posted for 2012. Please report any problems to Tim. Thank You!
Our Sunday Worship Service happens at 10:30am. In our Service we try to follow Paul’s advice in his letter to the Ephesians (5:19) ” Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,” There are many things that happen during the service, but we hope in all of them we encourage each other and praise God. We try have a blended service each week. That means we sing some songs that are old and some that are new. You will also notice that each week we partake of the Lord’s Supper as the center of our worship. After all, everything we do is in gratitude for Jesus’ sacrifice. On any given Sunday you might see a children’s message, a missions moment, a book report, a testimony, recitation of memory verses, special music, a drama, and sometimes Wrinkles the dog shows up. Still all of this is to spur one another onward in the Lord and to praise God. We welcome you to come and join in on the worship of God!
