Bible Study

Classes are held Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. from September through June.  "Oh Come Let Us Worship Him."

In order to reach our goal of increasing bible study, council members endorsed a resolution to increase their own participation in bible study. Bible study participation increases as the existing participants get excited about it and invite their friends. We can expect greater participation as we train elders to led some studies and eventually, when we grow large enough, be able to break off into two or more groups. We proclaim with the Church Fathers that Bible Study is important because "Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ".

Church Community

We have attempted to increase our Worship attendance by encouraging the Sunday School to participate in worship. The children are often successful in bringing their friends, parents, and extended family. Many people are introduced to our church for the first time through such activities.

Every month, the elders meet to discuss their progress in contacting members. Maintaining contact with our members and showing an interest in them is essential to our plan of knowing Christ and making Him Known. We emphasize to our members that congregational worship is an essential part of being a Christian. Jesus Christ "loved the church, and gave Himself up for her".
We also emphasize that Christianity involves community. Although a Christian may be able to read the Word by himself, he cannot participate in the sacramental life that Christ instituted without the local church.

We have not allowed our faith to be without fruits. We pray for the poor in our community and see the fulfillment of our prayers in a real way through our "Food Drive" program. Many thanks to the Monday Care Circle group for supporting this project. The items were taken to Central Park Lodge on Friday December 15th.

Steps have been taken to insure that our worship time doesn't become an exercise of mindless repetition. The choir has practiced the liturgy from the Hymnal Supplement for occasional use in our worship services. Although it takes time, effort and patience to learn new things our worship experience is enhanced by being able to express our love to God in new ways. We are fueling the Psalmist's command: "Sing to the Lord a new song"(Psalm 96: I)
