What to Expect When You Visit

What can you expect to find when you visit a worship service at the Roosevelt City Church of Christ?  Here are some answers to questions we are frequently asked about our services.


What are the members like?


Expect to find a friendly spirit and a warm atmosphere. You will be treated as a welcome guest of our family. We know that God loves you, and we are trying to be like Him.


Expect our assembly to be composed of people who consider each other spiritual brothers and sisters of one family. As a family we seek to glorify and praise God, and build one another up in faith. Our common aim is to love God and live like His Son, Jesus Christ, thereby bringing glory and honor to Him.


What should I wear?


We do not have a dress code per se.  Because it is worship, you will want to dress modestly.  Most people at our services wear their best to church, but “best” varies from person to person.


What is your worship like?


Our worship consists of five expressions: prayer, singing, teaching, communion, and giving.  Worship is “corporate,” meaning everyone is encouraged to participate.


We sing a capella (in the style of the church).  We do not use musical instruments in our worship.  The problem is not with instruments themselves.  We have found that the Christians in the New Testament worshiped with only vocal music (Mt. 26:30; Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16; Heb. 13:15), and we feel it is important to follow that practice.


We take communion every first day of the week (see Acts 20:7).  Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is a memorial with two emblems: unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine.  Jesus instituted this meal to commemorate his death (Mt. 26:26-29; 1 Cor. 11:23-25).  The bread represents his body, and the fruit of the vine represents his blood.  Christians partake of the Lord’s Supper to remember the Lord’s sacrifice for sin.  Communion is a privilege that belongs to God’s children.  Whether or not you take communion is your choice.  No one is coerced to participate, but we do ask every worshiper to examine himself or herself to be sure the Lord’s Supper is taken in a worthy manner (1 Cor. 11:27-29).


Christians give as we've been prospered to the Lord on the first day of the week (1 Cor. 16:1-2).  But, as with communion, giving is a personal decision.  We do not expect our guests to make a contribution, unless they are moved to do so.


What is your worship schedule?


On Sundays, our Bible classes start at 9:00 a.m.  The Lord's Day Worship follows that morning at 10:00 a.m..  Each Lord's Day evening, we have another worship service at 6:00 p.m.


On Wednesday nights, we have Bible study at 6:00 p.m.


What should I bring?


All you need is an open mind and a Bible.  If you don’t have a Bible, ask, and we’ll be happy to provide you with one.


We hope to see you soon!


Tapes and CD's are free to visitors.
