DSCN5609What to expect on a Sunday Morning…

On Sunday mornings, you will find a congregation gathered together to worship God and grow together in Christ.

During the worship service, you can expect the message to last about half an hour (30 to 35 minutes), and is delivered in an expository fashion. The purpose of the sermon is to explain what a passage from the Bible meant in its original context and apply it to contemporary life.  Application and life-change is the ultimate goal.

Worship is fairly traditional – consisting of a variety of the old time hymns.  All  hymns chosen contain texts written to reflect praise and glory to God. The majority of them may be hundreds of years old and are found in the hymn book.

Come as you are, everyone is welcome!

Sunday School…

Before the Sunday morning worship service, Sunday School is designed for fellowship and teaching.  This is a time to study God’s word, share testimonies from the week, and talk about how God is working in our lives.

Also, during this time we have a class for children.  We want to train up the next generation of believers in Christ.  Children will have a fun time – with age appropriate Bible teaching, songs, craft and snacks!

Bible Study and Family Prayer on Wednesday evening

We have a Bible study which may include many different topics from God’s Word. It’s just a great time of encouragement and refreshment to gather together mid week for all who attend. After our Bible study each individual in attendance can choose to pray. There is no pressure and if the Lord leads you to pray you can. Included in our prayer time are new prayer requests, along with prayer for our Nation and our leaders, our missionaries, Papa (Pastor Roberto Estrada) in Nogales, Mexico, and Lucio and Amanda Gallo and family in Salta, Argentina, members of our church family
and our unsaved neighbors, friends and family members. We continually thank the Lord
for answered prayers and His faithfulness to the church in Alford, through the years.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom;  teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord .” ~ Colossians 3:16 KJV
