A "Welcome from Jesus Christ"
Everyone needs to hear this, so we do it every week.
Our band leads us in songs that lift our hearts, voices, minds, hands, and feet, to God in thankfulness and praise. This is time for training our minds and engaging our hearts with God.
One portion of our worship is devoted to "corporate intercession", which means we all pray together from God's word. Whether that be the other churches in Tonkawa, missionaries we partner with around the globe, or a current crisis in the earth, we're intentional about asking God to do what only He can do.
Another portion of our worship is for "personal prayer." Since the Lord has blessed our church with elders (what the bible calls the spiritual leaders of churches), they are available for anyone to come and pray with them about anything, big or small.
We hear God's word and ask the Lord for mercy and the Spirit's power to obey it in loving God and loving our neighbors.
The Lord's Supper
Jesus gave the church a meal to remember Him. By taking bread and a cup, the church proclaims Christ. Unbelievers are welcome to participate in every portion of our worship service, but this portion is reserved for baptized believers who are in good standing with a gospel church, whether CLC or elsewhere.
