At HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH (HOFCC) we celebrate our Lord’s Day each week as a delightful holiday for the family of God. The atmosphere of our weekly gathering is intended to be a wonderful family reunion, full of joy and loving concern for one another. Because this is our only service each week, we like to “make a day of it.”
Our gathering is age-integrated. That means all ages participate together in worship, Bible teaching and fellowship. Our worship is doctrinally sound and musically appealing to all ages.
Likewise, our Bible teachers make every effort to feed all ages on sound, soul-stirring expository preaching. Following our service, we host a weekly Shared Meal where we come prepared to show our love for God by the way we love and serve one another. (Visitors are welcome as our guests!)
This extended time together once each week accomplishes two things: First, it allows our members to really reconnect with one another.
Second, it leaves ample time each week for everyone to “Be doers of God’s Word, and not merely hearers” (Jam 1:22). Rather than multiply church services, we encourage our members to live a lifestyle of ministry hospitality: hosting times to pray and worship together, Bible study groups, and organizing “work-parties” for one another. In times of crisis, we expect everyone to flex their schedules and squeeze their finances to pitch in and help by preparing meals, caring for one another’s children, and helping one another make it through hard times.
