What to Expect
That’s what you’ll find as our guest! But one thing you should expect is a personal, uplifting worship experience. Every service is geared for participation. We worship as we live, with enthusiasm and love. We have one service that is perfect for both contemporary and traditional styles of worship.
Wednesday evenings we feature an hour-long Bible study known as Christian Education. We teach how to understand the Bible and apply it to our present lives. We also feature other special Bible studies such as classes for just men or classes for just women.
A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers. This loving, comfortable atmosphere helps show children at the earliest ages that church is a good place to be. Childcare also frees parents to worship without distraction. Special care is taken to thoroughly clean the nursery area on a weekly basis.
Bible-oriented activities are provided for preschool and elementary-age children. At this level, young children are taught to sing, pray, memorize Scripture and learn important Bible truths. They are instructed and led in worship at their own levels. We provide them an exciting way to learn about Jesus Christ and worship Him with their whole hearts.
Youth Worship Services
Each Wednesday night our Middle and High School students meet at 6:30pm. Each service is geared for the specific age group with dynamic praise & worship and creative events and activities. Every week is a new and exciting adventure.
At The Brethren Fellowship, you will experience a diversity of musical styles. Music mention in the Bible engages the full range of human emotions and we try to reflect that in our worship.
Whatever the accompaniment; inspired singing is the order of the day. Any given service may include traditional hymns, hand-clapping gospel, contemporary praise and reverent worshipful choruses.
Time in Prayer
A special time in the service is devoted to prayer. Needs from in and outside the church family frequently are made known, the church family may join together in prayer. As in the New Testament, specific prayer is offered for the sick. At times, they will be invited forward to be anointed with oil (James 5:13-16) and have the ministers or other believers lay hands on them and pray (Mark 16:18).
We believe giving the tithe (the first tenth of income) declares that God comes first. It recognizes His blessing, expresses faith and seeks His guidance in every matter in life.
The ministries at The Brethren Fellowship are supported solely by free-will giving. However, guest need not feel obligated to give.
The high point of our services comes with the preaching of God’s Word, the Bible, and an invitation for hearers to respond. The messages are fervent, inspiring and practical.
The pastor may close with an invitation for those who want to dedicate their lives to come forward. Those who feel a need to re-commit their lives to Christ or to pray about other concerns are also invited to come. Believers are encouraged to ask for the Holy Spirit to further empower them for Christian service. Often everyone is invited to come and pray during the altar service.
Deep emotion and excitement may or may not be demonstrated at the altars in a service, but everyone who calls on God in faith receives something.
If you’ve wondered what our services are like, we invite you to observe and experience God’s joy and peace that defy description. And when you come to be our guest, come expecting! Expect to feel God in a way that will uplift you, and set you free. We think you’ll agree that the comfort, help and strength He gives are better experienced than explained.
