What to Expect at Williamsburg Church of Christ
As a Church, we strive to keep our worship services focused on God. To facilitate this we have the following in every Sunday morning service: Teaching, Singing, Lord's Supper, Giving, Prayer, and Class Time.
Teaching at Williamsburg Church of Christ
We study God's Word each Sunday. We do this through preaching during the worship assembly and through Bible classes.
Singing at Williamsburg Church of Christ
We like to sing. We have chosen to sing a cappella, that is without musical instruments. This may be new to you, as not all churches sing this way. Please feel free to join in every song with us. The words will be on the overhead screen in front. If you wish to follow the words in the songbook, one is located on the rack under the seat. The song name and number will be listed on the Order of Worship, on the front of a bulletin. Bulletins are available as you enter the auditorium.
Lord's Supper at Williamsburg Church of Christ
We observe the Lord’s Supper each Sunday. Some churches call this communion. Someone from the church will go to the front and serve as the attendant by leading devotional thoughts prior to our taking the supper. Two trays will be passed. The first tray is unleavened bread, which represents Jesus’ body, and the second will have small cups of grape juice, which represent Christ’s blood on the cross. We all join together and share these as the family of God. It is somewhat analogous to shared family time during an evening meal. A prayer will be said by the attendant before each of the trays is passed. You should feel free to partake of the bread and the cup as you choose. This is an open time for both reflection and celebration. We reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins and celebrate that He lives in us, and will return one day to claim us as His.
Giving at Williamsburg Church of Christ
We take up a collection each Sunday. We believe that our ability to give is a blessing from God. Because we believe this about giving, you can participate with us, but only if you wish.
If you are visiting please do not feel pressured to give.
Prayer at Williamsburg Church of Christ
At times during the service, someone will go to the microphone and offer a prayer to God. This is our collective prayer to God as a church. You are welcome to quietly join the prayer, or silently say one of your own. The important thing is the meditation on God, and thanks to Him for His blessings.
Class Time at Williamsburg Church of Christ
When we are dismissed for classes, your kids will already be meeting with their small groups. So grab a cup of coffee and meet a few new friends! You may pick up a list of our quarterly classes on the center table in the foyer. Choose a class that is appropriate for your stage in life or one of our general classes. Either way, we are all studying the same theme.
