What To Expect

Welcome
Personal Bible Study
​​What to Expect When You Visit...​​

We understand that people have various experiences in religious practices, and come from many different backgrounds. With this in mind, we want to share how our assemblies are arranged here at the Brighton Hill Church of Christ.  We pray that the following information will be helpful to you!
 
We want you to feel welcome...


Our congregation is widely known for its love of people. While attending one of our services, you will quickly notice that we enjoy meeting new people. We're going to introduce ourselves to you ... you'll be shaking some hands and hearing some "glad to have you’s" while you're with us – we sincerely hope that you feel the love!


Crying babies and cell phones are all a wonderful part of our culture. We understand it when babies cry or when someone accidentally forgets to turn off a cell phone. Although it is a little embarrassing for the person who forgets, we will never belittle you for such a thing happening in our assembly, and we would never want you to feel too embarrassed to return. We do have a nursery for you to take your children should they need to leave the assembly, where they may be cared for. This room has a changing table, baby bed, sofa, chairs as well as an audio and video feed.

​​The goal of our assembly is to honor God and encourage one another to be great servants in the kingdom of God! Though we make every effort to communicate clearly, sometimes, we cover information or use terms that may be foreign to some of our guests. If you should have any questions about anything regarding our faith, practices or programs, please ask the minister or one of our elders, and we will be sure to assist you.

We encourage you to “Come and see.” (John 1:46). Be our guest for a few weeks – observe, ask questions, get acquainted and prayerfully consider the things that you hear. We pray that you will feel truly welcomed!

Worship in Spirit and in Truth...
 
Our Bible Classes:


The Brighton Hill Church of Christ is made up of individuals and families who believe that Bible learning builds better homes, equips children and adults for making better life choices, and establishes a meaningful relationship with God and others who share the faith.


Every Sunday morning (10:00 – 10:45a.m.) we offer Bible classes for ALL ages.  Each of our classes is Bible-based and taught by enthusiastic teachers who love the Truth and care about their students.  We’re working hard to build a quality Bible class program.  We invite you to come and experience first-hand the great benefits that Bible-centered learning can offer you and your family.


In these classes you will find a less formal atmosphere where you can feel free to comment or ask questions. Please feel free to ask anything at all…your question or comment will aid to the class and help us learn something new as we look together to the Bible for the answer. Everything you see us do, or hear us teach, should come only from the basis of God's Word. God and His Word are always right! If you find us doing something that is contrary to God’s word, show us and we will change. We simply want to be Bible-believing, and Bible-living , people of God!


Our Worship Services:


Our worship is simple, spiritual and orderly. God wants simple worship that is poured out of our hearts and offered up to Him - Jesus said, "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:24).  When we worship God, it is not about what we like or what sounds good to us…worship is about pleasing God!  Thus, each element of our worship finds its origin in the commands and examples found in the New Testament of God’s word:-
 
Prayer
  One of the greatest blessings we have as children of God is being able to “come boldly before the throne of grace”. At certain times during worship, some of our brothers will lead us in prayer to God. We pray, not only to praise and thank God, but also to ask for our needs and the needs of others, (I Timothy 2:1-4).


Singing
  As a group of worshippers, we absolutely love to sing and we would love for you to join in! None of us are professionals; we are just trying to pour our spirits out to God in song. Don't worry if you think you might be out of tune, -if your heart is right, that is all that matters!…”make a joyful noise unto the Lord”
 You will hear different song tempos and lyrics and styles, all intended to give praise to God and for us to teach one another. In Ephesians 5:19, and Colossians 3:16, God has commanded us all to sing, so we have no choirs or praise teams during our worship service.
 You may be surprised that we don't use instruments. The reason for this is because for worship, we only read in the New Testament about singing and making melody in our hearts, so that is the pattern we follow.

Preaching
  Our Sunday worship services include a Bible based sermon.  The goal of the sermon is to teach us how to think as Christ thinks, and to walk as Christ walked!  At the conclusion of the sermon, our preacher will offer a time of response to the message. You will find this done in a simple and respectful way…no one will try to "drag" you down the aisle, or coerce you in any way. An "Invitation" will be offered for anyone who wishes to give their life to Christ, or give thanks for answered prayer, or who would like to have the church pray for them (Matt 28:18-20; James 5:16).  If you choose to do either of these, simply walk to the front of the auditorium during the invitation song; there you will be assisted by one of our leaders.


Collection
  We do not take up a collection every time we meet, but only on the first day of the week, (I Corinthians 16:1-2).  When the collection is taken you are not expected to give… this is the responsibility of members, not our guests. However, if you would like to give, you are quite welcome to do so!
 
Communion
  The night He was betrayed, Jesus instituted a memorial meal. Jesus commanded his followers to observe this "communion" as a remembrance of Him until He comes again (1 Cor. 11:23-26). In the New Testament, we read that the church gathered together on the first day of the week to observe this intimate memorial (Acts 20:7). It was a remembrance of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, giving his body and his blood for us. We read that they did this every week, and so that is why we do the same. Should you take part in this communion? That decision is up to you; no one here will make that choice for you. In 1 Cor. 11:23-34, the Bible teaches that this is a time for Christians to carefully examine ourselves, then partake of the bread and fruit of the vine in a worthy manner.
 
                                 We hope that this information has been helpful and that we get to see you real soon!
