The East Park Church of Christ is part of the Restoration Movement. This simply means that in our worship we try to duplicate as closely as possible, the worship of the First Century church, the church founded on the day of Pentecost as recorded in Acts.
You will notice that we do not have any musical instruments in our worship service. We sing A cappella- this literally means “without instrumental accompaniment”. Because the New Testament does not mention the use of instruments in the First Century church, we choose to follow the example of singing praises to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16)
During our service we will have several prayers. There is no vocal audience response necessary during these prayers. The men leading us in prayer may include specific needs or requests. (Philippians 4:6)
Each Sunday we include the Lord’s Supper as a part of our worship. This is a memorial of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. We observe the Lord’s Supper each Sunday just as Jesus commanded us to do. (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation, so please feel free to just pass the collection basket on down the row.
Our preacher bears no title nor does he wear vestments, because in the priesthood of believers we are all equal. He will speak from 20-30 minutes and we believe you will find the sermon refreshingly Bible-centered. At the end of his sermon the preacher will extend an invitation to anyone who has a need or desires our prayers. At this time we will stand and sing a song that the song leader has selected. (Matthew 18:18-20; 1 Corinthians 2:2)
A nursery is available for your use at the top of the stairs in our foyer. Please feel free to use the facilities in this room for your young children.
Children’s Bible Time:
If you have any children age 2 – grade 1 visiting with you they may enjoy our “Children’s Bible Time” which is held in room #20. The children will be dismissed to attend this class during the song immediately after the Lord’s Supper and Collection.
