Breaking of Bread Service

  • Sundays @ 9:30 at the chapel
  • This is an unstructured service in which various men share a Scripture, a reflection, a hymn or a prayer.  Our focus is the death and resurrection of  Jesus Christ.  This service culminates in taking the bread and the wine in remembrance of him.  In some Christian traditions, this service is called "Communion" or "The Lord's Supper" or the "Eucharist".

Family Bible Hour

  • Sundays @ 11:00 at the chapel
  • This service is similar to what most evangelical churches would call their worship service or their Sunday morning service.  We sing worship songs reflecting a variety of musical styles.  Some are led by a worship team and others are older hymns accompanied by the piano.  There are often Scripture readings and prayers, followed by a sermon of about 30 minutes.  The preaching is done by a wide variety of men from the church as well as some who attend other churches.  This provides room for different styles, experiences and tastes in the preaching ministry.

Sunday School

  • Sundays @ 11:00 at the chapel
  • Our Sunday School is a busy place for children aged 3 to 15.  Our teachers are dedicated to helping our youth learn more about Jesus, deepen their faith in Him and strengthen their Christian walk.  Children go to Sunday School after the worship portion (about 15 minutes) of the Family Bible Hour.

Life Groups 

  • A Life Group is a group of about 12 individuals who meet together to worship, pray, and to learn from one another as we study God's Word together.  Most life groups meet on Sunday evening at 6:00 or 6:30 in various homes throughout the city.
