What to expect on Sunday
Here are a few facts that we hope will address some of the questions you may have:
-We meet on the beautiful and conveniently located campus of Concord Christian Academy. If you or anyone accompanying you would be helped by parking in the spaces directly in front of the building, please do so! The facility and grounds are fully handicap accessible.
Sunday School for Adults and Children
-We have one adult Sunday School class and three children’s classes in addition to the nursery. Sunday School begins at 9am. A greeter will be glad to help you find the various classrooms.
-Baby-Age 4: Nursery led by a rotating staff of volunteer Faith Fellowship members
-Ages 4-7: Nancy LaFrance and Kathy LeDuc
-Ages 8-11: Dave and Christine Hinckley: This class is currently going through "The ABC's of God: A Study for Children on the Greatness and Worth of God". The children are learning answers to questions like: Who is God? What is He like? How should I act toward Him?
-Youth Class (grades 6-12): Keith Carter and Gregg Hofford are teaching through Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
-Adults: Pastor Gabe is currently teaching a class on the the topic of Law and Gospel.
-We meet for worship at 10am in the “Great Room” which currently has seating for around 140 people.
-In our singing together, we seek to emphasize the great truths of God and His Gospel. We purposefully draw from both the best hymns of the past and the best hymns and songs being written today. Our intent is that the instruments (currently piano) serve to assist, not replace or drown out, the joyous and reverent singing of the congregation.
-Our worship services typically last 80-90 minutes in large part because of the attention we want to give to the reading and preaching of God’s Word.
-A highlight of our meeting together on Sundays is the informal fellowship that takes place after our worship services. Coffee and tea are provided. People are eager to visit with one another and often remain for an hour after the worship service! (Don’t worry, you are free to leave at any time!)
-In our 5:30pm evening worship services, we spend time in prayer together and give attention to the preaching of another portion of God’s Word. Pastor Gabe is currently teaching through the book of Daniel.
-Nursery is available for children up to age four during both Sunday School and morning worship.
-We intentionally encourage children above the age of four to remain with their parents in the worship service. While we are fully aware of the challenge it is for some wiggling little ones to remain in the worship service, it is our firm belief that children are learning about the greatness of God as they observe and participate with worshiping adult believers.
