Our church family times combine singing, sharing and prayer. We come together at 6 PM to lift up our praise to God in song, generally singing a blend of traditional and contemporary music for a few minutes. After a brief prayer, we hear announcements and share matters for prayer from both our corporate and individual lives, including things like evangelistic efforts, special needs, illnesses, deaths, salvations, etc. We then lift up our petitions and praises to God.
Once we’ve prayed together, the pastor will typically continue in a Bible study for the remainder of the time. The study will be a little less formal, but styled in a way to be able to see how Scripture typically fits together as a whole.
