Worship Services

What you can expect in our worship service:

Our worship service is simple and all about God.  We do our best to worship God in the way that He asked us to worship Him in the Bible.  The New Testament talks about the five parts of a worship assembly.  When Christians gathered together in Bible times they prayed, shared a message from God’s word, sang hymns of praise to God, took up a contribution and remembered Christ with the Lord’s Supper.  We still do this today because we have not been told to worship God in any other way 

 You might have questions about our worship and we would be happy to answer any that you might have.  Here are a few brief thoughts that might help:

 Prayer – in their worship assemblies the very first Christians prayed together.  Check out 1 Corinthians 14:15-17

 Study God’s word – The early church continued studying the teachings of the apostles.  These teachings make up a good portion of the New Testament. You can read about this in Acts 2:42

 Singing – The first Christians were told to sing songs of praise to God.  The only instruments they were told to use for this was their heart and their voice.  A good verse for this is Ephesians 5:19

 Contribution – Bridgewood takes up a weekly contribution from its members to support the work of the congregation locally and around the world.  Members are asked to set aside money during the week to freely offer on Sunday.  You can read about this in 2 Corinthians 8:12-13

 Lord’s Supper – On the first day of each week (Sunday) Christians are commanded by Christ to observe His life and death with the Lord’s Supper.  It is a time for Christians to think about the great price that was paid for their lives.  You can read about this in 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
