What To Expect When You Visit Gaylord Church of Christ

Visiting a new church can sometimes be intimidating. We want to make your visit as pleasant as possible. You can expect a warm welcome and you can expect to be treated in a friendly and courteous manner. You will be considered an honored guest. Besides a friendly group of people, you may be wondering what you can expect when you visit us.

Sunday Morning Worship Service (11:00 AM)

Following the opening announcements, the congregation will engage in a period of singing praises and hymns in adoration of God. We invite you to grab a song book from the rack on the back of the seat in front of you and sing along. You will no doubt notice that we sing without the accompaniment of musical instruments. Like the early Christians, we sing a cappella.

We come before God in prayer several times during the worship. The men of the congregation will lead the prayers so you won't have to worry that you will be put on the spot by being called on to pray publicly.

On Sundays members partake of the Lord's Supper. During this memorial, a plate of unleavened bread and a cup containing grape juice will be passed from person to person. It is up to you to decide if you will partake. This memorial is for Christians to remember the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Do not feel embarrassed if you prefer not to participate in the communion. Just pass the plate to the next person.

On Sundays we also make opportunity for the members to make a financial contribution. As commanded in the New Testament scriptures, we only take up a collection on the first day of the week. This collection is taken up in order to finance the work of the church. As our guest, you are not expected to contribute any money. However, if you wish to make a donation feel free to drop it in the collection plate as it is passed.

There will be a period of bible preaching. The sermon will last around 30 minutes, give or take, and the speaker will frequently refer to the Bible citing book, chapter and verse. If you have any questions or comments about what is said in the sermon, the speaker will be happy to discuss it with you after the service is over.

Immediately following the sermon, an invitation will be extended during the singing of a song. The invitation is simply a convenient time and opportunity for anyone to go to the front of the auditorium to seek spiritual assistance. Some go forward requesting prayers to be made on their behalf. Others may respond to the invitation because they wish to obey the gospel call and become a Christian.
