Welcome to Church!

Below are somethings you might ask and expect:-

How should I dress?

Come in relaxed casual wear as you would to a regular tyoe restaurant.  Make sure you are comfortable.

What can I expect?

Parking: As you drive in, turn to the right and there is visitors parking. It’s close to the main door.

Through the doors: You will be welcomed by a couple of greeters who will show you to the sanctuary doors where ushers will again welcome you, hand you the weekly bulletin and direct you to vacant seats of your choosing.

In the Sanctuary (the main auditorium)?: Sit wherever you like.  There are no reserved seats. Familes have gravitated to the right hand wings of the church. Music will be playing as you enter, and people will be connecting.

Will I be asked to announce my name or speak in public?

No, you will not be asked to do anything that will make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. A tear off communique slip is attached to a weekly bulletin which you can fill in and hand in on the offering plate if you would like us to pray for you or if you are comfortable to give us any information.

What’s next?: The pastor or someone will welcome everyone to the service and make some announcements. The praise team band will also come to the front and will lead in some singing to direct our thoughts toward God. And the service will start.

What style of music do we use?  We have a blend of modern songs and older genres of music called hymns. This is led by a band of musicians and singers.

Is there a talk:? Yes! A time to expose and explain the meaning behind a Bible passage is given that is applied to how it can affect our lives today.  This takes about 30 minutes of the service. We will always reference the Bible during this time.

How does the service end? The service ends with a song and prayer.  Time for social interaction happens at the end of the service where coffee is served. Feel free to meet our caring and loving church family.

The Purpose of Training in the Church

David Sparrow

May 26, 2019

Ephesians 4:11-16


Ephesians 4:11-16 is one of the most powerful passages in the Bible after the cross. We are not only to understand what God has done for the church in Christ by His saving her but what He saved her for.  We must not only get excited about the work of the cross but also the purpose of the cross.

 

Paul the Apostle has clearly elaborated on the salvation of the church in Ephesians 1-2, but continues on and presents to us here the reason Jesus died: God is creating a people to wholly love, trust and serve Him. Until this truth has besieged our souls, we are victims of the world’s philosophy of life.

 

We will look at this passage in two sections:  

    A) God’s Work in the Church (Ephesians 4:11-13) and

    B) Our Responsibility as the Church (Ephesians 4:14-16).

The first section is outlined in the diagram on the left. Note how the three verses go together. This is what makes this section so powerful. The diagram shows how the individual elements are related to each other.

 

The first section (Ephesians 4:11-13) gives the framework for building a glorious church. The later section (Ephesians 4:14-16) enables the church to work within the frame Christ has provided. As much as she stays within the general provisions of the Lord, the church will do great. But if she, and indeed she has in many cases, steps outside of her God-given boundaries, then she will suffer and eventually die.

 

This is the beautiful design for what God wants to do in the church right now. Let's see how it works out practically!
