SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE - 9:45-11:15 am
Our Sunday morning service is a beautifully simple gathering with a loaf of bread and cup of wine on the table in the center. Each week, we carry out the words of the Lord Jesus Christ when He said, “This do for a remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). The bread is passed to each brother and sister as a remembrance of the body of our Lord Jesus Christ which was given for us on the cross. Likewise, the wine is passed as we remember the precious blood of Christ shed for our sins. The apostle Paul wrote, “As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup ye do shew the Lord’s death until He come” (1 Corinthians 11:26).
We welcome you to come and observe this precious and solemn remembrance. As a visitor, not knowing the order and perhaps not known to any of the believers here, we will show you to a seat in the back (1 Corinthians 14:16). Absolutely no discourtesy is intended, and it is our hope and prayer that all true believers will have the God-given desire to take their place in the fellowship of a scripturally-gathered New Testament assembly.
When visiting, you may hear a “letter of commendation” read when we have visitors from other assemblies. These are intended to “commend” a fellow believer from a distant assembly, or someone who has moved into the area and is unknown to the believers here. This serves to preserve the character and holiness of the assembly as well as the testimony to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
There are never any public collections taken. Only those in fellowship bring an offering, privately given as a bag is passed around on Sunday morning after the bread and wine.
SUNDAY CLASSES FOR KIDS - 12:45-1:15 pm
Please join us and bring your children for our Sunday school program each week. We meet at 11:45 am to sing songs with the children. After singing, they go to their classes, which usually finish around 1:00 pm.
Our Sunday school teachers take a personal, genuine interest in the kids and love to teach them Bible truths. Your children will be taught about the grace and love of the God, and about the truth of forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ.
Little ones will enjoy coloring pages and other activities as well. Our goal is to teach these young ones (and older ones!) so that they will come to know the Lord Jesus as their own personal Savior. The Lord Jesus Himself said, “Let the little children come unto me” (Luke 18:16).
FREE TRANSPORTATION is available, and we regularly travel into Hartford and other surrounding areas to pick up children. Please contact us for more information or to arrange a ride. Young people over age 4 are welcome without a parent, but we do ask that those 4 and under come with an adult.
GOSPEL MEETING - Sundays 12:45-1:15 pm
Come listen to the best and most important message you’ll ever hear! The good news of the gospel is preached every Sunday night. We begin by singing, and then two speakers get up to read from God’s word and simply present the truth that every person is born in need of salvation. As lost sinners, we need to recognize our need of forgiveness. This wonderful, life-giving gospel tells us that every individual can find that forgiveness by trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
We will never pressure anyone to raise their hands or come to the front. Salvation is a personal work between each soul and God. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have at the end of the meeting. Again, no collections are ever taken.
PRAYER AND BIBLE STUDY - 7:00-8:30 pm
All are invited to our Bible study and prayer meeting. The first half of the meeting is devoted to prayer, at which time different brothers pray and make their requests known to God (Philippians 4:6). The second half is for the reading and discussion of the Holy Scriptures, usually following a chronological order from the previous week of some portion of the Bible. The discussion is not a public forum, so audible participation is limited to those who are in the fellowship of the local assembly. We would be happy to answers any questions from our visitors after the meeting.
