Jesus rose from the dead on a Sunday morning (Matthew 28:1-3; Mark 16:2-6; Luke 24:1-7; John 20:1-9) and every week since then Christians have gathered together every Sunday morning (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2) to hear the Word of God. As "Gospel People" we gather on the day that Jesus rose to remember His life, death, and resurrection by hearing His Word read, proclaimed, and taught.
During our Service of the Word, after a time of singing "psalms and hymns and spiritual songs" (Ephesians 5:19), the Bible is read aloud and then one of our pastors proclaims a message of exhortation from the Bible. Because the Gospel is of first importance (1 Corinthians 15:3-8), every sermon is founded in, driven by, and will conclude with the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ.
Sunday Bible Study
Every Sunday morning after our service we usually have a time where we enjoy coffee and other refreshments. We then gather everyone in our Fellowship Hall for a Bible Study taught by one of our pastors. The Sunday sermon is usually reserved for the proclamation of Law & Gospel, while the Bible Study is a time of theological instruction in the Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17), usually verse-by-verse through a book of the Bible.
