Info for non-Christians

On page 2 of every church bulletin we print is a box, “The Lord’s Day for Christians,” that explains to visitors what we do in our Sunday meetings.

Below is my translation.

Christians meet on the first day of the week, the day when Jesus was raised from the dead. They sing to praise God and encourage one another. Bible readings are done. Someone brings a message based on the Bible. The disciples eat the Lord’s supper. They voluntarily offer from their possessions. They offer prayers and make requests of God.

All is done to please the Lord, because he is our audience.

Depending on the congregation, the order may vary a bit, but all the churches of the Lord pratice the same acts of worship.

As a visitor, you are our guest of honor, so that you may understand more about why we do all this.

Bible courses and studies are offered to you at no cost.

Be pithy.

  1. Randall,
    I ran across your old website and have used many of insightful articles in my lesson preparation. I just came to your blog and click on For Non Christians. I gather from reading this that you are a member of the church of Christ. Am I right?

  2. Jerry, hello, and thanks for the comment, glad you found the articles helpful. Wondering which old website you’re referring to, possibly, the old Forthright Mag at antville? Yes, I am a member of the body of Christ. Here some info on our local congregation:
