Thanks for investing time to participate. This information will be valuable for future planning.

Question Title

* 1. The Lectionary is a listing of readings from the Bible for use in worship which allows us to follow the liturgical year with its pattern of observances of festivals and seasons. The alternative would be to leave the theme or topic of the service to the discretion of the Pastor.
What should we use as a guide for the week-to-week theme and content of our worship service?

Question Title

* 2. Christian worship takes on many different forms. The style of worship at Community Church has been traditional in practice with the singing of familiar hymns, Scripture reading, confession, prayer including the Lord’s Prayer, and a sermon. In contemporary worship, music, prayer and the sermon/Bible teaching occupies most of the service. The music in contemporary worship tends toward more modern Christian music and less of traditional hymns. If God is worshiped in Spirit and Truth, either form of worship or a blend of the two, are proper and fitting ways to worship our God.
