NOT EXPECT ENTERTAINMENT OF ANY KIND.
are not giving any parties; you will not be offered any refreshments
either before or after worship. There
will be no band, no mechanical instruments of music to entertain
NOT EXPECT ANY REQUEST FOR MONEY. The
work here is fully supported by the voluntary offerings of the
members on the first day of the week.
DO NOT EXPECT TO BE CALLED ON TO TESTIFY. No
one will be embarrassed by being asked for any kind of demonstration
from the audience. You
will not be asked to raise your hand or to stand to indicate
whether you are on the road to heaven or hell.
NOT EXPECT ANY SHOW OF OSTENTATION. We
are not interested in impressing anyone with the finery of our
meeting place. We
will not have a candlelight service. We
will not be showing movies to entertain.
MAY EXPECT TO HEAR PLAIN AND SIMPLE GOSPEL PREACHING. We
have no man-made creed or doctrine. You
may expect the preacher and teachers to give book, chapter and
verse for what they teach. Our theme will not be political, economic
or social in nature. It
will all be spiritual in nature.
EXPECT TO HEAR GOOD CONGREGATIONAL SINGING. The
audience will be invited to join together in singing praises
to God. There will be no choir or solo singing, but
our voices will be offered through the name of Christ.
MAY EXPECT TO HEAR US LIFT OUR HEARTS TO GOD IN PRAYER. We
will on several occasions offer public prayers to our God, the
God of the Bible. Since
Jesus Christ is the one mediator between God and man, these prayers
will be offered in His name.
YOU MAY EXPECT TO BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO OBEY
THE GOSPEL. We
cannot and will not try to force you to be obedient. There
will not be any embarrassing propositions. You
will simply be invited.
YOU MAY EXPECT TO BE WELCOME EVERY TIME YOU
ATTEND. You will
be our honored guest and our members will treat you cordially. You will be asked nothing more than to give
a careful hearing to the Word that is preached. Come
