What to Expect
“Let them praise your great and awesome name!” – Psalm 99:3
Each Sunday we get together and worship God, the mighty creator who rules the universe. Our worship services are simple and spiritually focused. Everything we do in worship is modeled after what we read about in the New Testament.
Sing to God
The songs are designed to honor God and encourage us as Christians. Sometimes the song leader will select songs that all relate to a common theme. We worship without instruments because that’s how worship is described in the New Testament (Ephesians 5:19).
Pray to God
We usually have a few prayers during the service where we praise God and talk to Him about our spiritual needs.
Think About Jesus’ Death
Every Sunday morning and evening we take the Lord’s Supper which is a special memorial to remember Jesus’ death. We eat small pieces of unleavened bread to remember Jesus’ body. Then we drink grape juice to remember Jesus’ blood. This helps us think about Jesus love for us and the wonderful salvation that we enjoy.
Give to God
If you are a guest, you are not expected to give. At this point in the service the members give money to help support the spread of the gospel in this area and in other areas around the world. Learn about some of the evangelists that we support.
Preach God’s Word
Philip Williams presents a lesson each Sunday morning. The sermons at Martinez church of Christ are Bible-based, practical, and encouraging. As we open the Bible we gain a greater understanding of God’s character and His will for our lives. Each sermon should help you personally grow closer to God. Many times the sermons deal with challenging, transformative topics.
