What to Expect

What to Expect

There are some individuals who are thrilled by the thought of visiting a congregation for the first time.  Other individuals look forward to visiting, but with more reservation and some nervousness. Still others dread the entire experience of going to a new place and meeting new people.  Please allow us to take a moment and explain what you will see and encounter when you visit one of the worship services of the Linder Road church of Christ. We genuinely hope you will consider worshipping with us.

Upon your arrival and entrance into our church building, you will be warmly greeted by two or more individuals who will welcome you with a bright smile, a handshake and provide you with a handout for the upcoming sermon. They will most likely hand you a copy of the current bulletin and provide you with a visitor handout that will tell you about the congregation.

You will also immediately “run into” a group of our members talking and enjoying each other’s company. Whether it is brothers and sisters catching up on each others’ lives, someone asking our preacher a question about a sermon or bible
class, or members getting to know a new individual or family at services, the minutes leading up to and immediately following our bible classes and worship services are always warm, welcoming, and encouraging. 

You will quickly notice that our members come from all walks of life. You will meet Christians who are drawing social security, see babies still in diapers, notice young singles, as well as middle-aged couples. We believe that you will find the kind of unity which is desired by our Lord (John 17:20-21; I Corinthians 12:12-27).
