What to Expect When You Visit Us

When you visit us at Beattie Road, we believe you’ll find a welcoming group of friendly folks. We are generally acknowledged for our friendliness, faith, diversity, unity, and loving environment. Come worship with us – we’d love to get to know you!

During Worship on Sundays, you can expect to see the following:

Prayer. We believe in the importance and power of prayer. There will be several prayers offered during our worship service. We want to thank God, petitionHim for guidance, wisdom, and praise Him for His love towards us (1 Timothy 2:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Preaching. We will teach what the Bible says. To encourage, inform, and build faith, time will be spent in the presentation of simple and understandable studies from God’s word (1 Corinthians 1:18-21).

Congregational Singing. You will quickly notice; we do not use mechanical instruments of music. The bible instructs Christians to encourage each other with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs and to sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). In these passages there is no authority given for using any instruments except the voice and the heart. Because we desire to do only what is biblically authorized, we simply sing – no more, no less.

The Lord’s Supper. This is a time of communion with the Lord and others. We partake of the unleavened bread which represents the Lord’s body. We will also partake of the fruit of the vine which represents the Lord’s blood, which was shed for the remission of sins. The church in the New Testament observed the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7) to commemorate the death of Christ. We follow their Divinely guided example.

Contribution. This time is set aside for the members of the church at Beattie Road to give money that will enable us to carry out the work of the church. Our guests are not expected or entreated to contribute money. A biblical example for the occasion for this collection can be found in 1 Corinthians 16:1&2.

During Wednesday night Bible Study:

Our Wednesday evening Bible study begins at 7:00 pm until 7:45 pm. We then meet for a brief 15-minute devotional and congregational singing.

In our classes, you can expect to open the Bible so we can all study and grow in our faith. During class, feel free to comment, ask questions, or sit back and observe—whatever you are most comfortable with!
