What is Worship Like at Antelope

Welcome to Antelope Church of Christ!   We want you to feel comfortable when you visit us, so let us tell you what you can generally expect when you come.

The Setting

You will be greeted at the door when you enter.   These greeters will help you with any needs you might have. You will enter what we refer to as the “auditorium,” where you will find a place to sit.  There are no reserved seats, so feel free to sit anywhere.

The Music

One of the unique things about Antelope Church of Christ is the music which is ‘a cappella;’ that is, we sing without the use of musical instruments.  We love the beauty and joy of worshipping God from our hearts with our voices.  We believe you will find the singing meaningful and uplifting, with everyone being invited to participate.

Prayers

When you honor us with a visit you will hear spoken prayers.  We believe in the power of prayer and God’s Word, so these aspects will take up a considerable amount of our worship time.

The Lord’s Supper or Communion

The Lord’s Supper will also be included in our worship time. During this time, trays of unleavened bread (symbolizing the body of Jesus) and cups of grape juice (symbolizing the blood of Jesus) will be passed throughout the auditorium.  You do not have to participate in this celebration of what Jesus did for us on the cross. You are welcome to just pass the trays to the next person or partake of the communion as you wish.

The Collection

Baskets will also be passed to collect a weekly financial offering to support the work of the church.   As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation.

Also, if you would, when you visit, fill out a guest card and make us aware of your visit by placing it in the collection basket when it comes around.  This simply provides information so that we can write or call to thank you for your visit.

The Lesson

The lesson is normally 30-35 minutes long.  We hope you find it refreshingly Bible-centered and applicable to your life.   At the close of the lesson, the minister will “extend an invitation.”   He will encourage those who wish to ‘respond’ to come to the front of the auditorium while the congregation sings.   At this time, if you need help spiritually in any way, please feel free to come forward.

What is Expected of You?

We hope that you will participate in the worship service.  But don’t feel obligated; just observe if that is your choice.   No one will call on you to participate in any way.
