The Light on the Hill..Matthew 5:14-16

What to Expect When You Visit the Clifton Church of Christ

You can expect to be warmly welcomed by people who care about you.

If you arrive at 9:30 on Sunday morning or 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening (or at another Bible Class) you can expect to find a group of people opening their Bibles as they seek to discern God’s will for their lives. 

If you are our guest at 10:30 on Sunday morning or 6:00 p.m. on a Sunday evening you are invited to join with us in worshiping our God.
You’ll quickly notice we love to sing praises to God and that the words of the songs are designed to teach and encourage those in attendance (Colossians 3:16). The only instrument of music that we use is our hearts and voices (Ephesians 5:19).
On Sunday mornings we set aside time to remember Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross. As in the first century this is done as we share bread and the fruit of the vine. During this time we are reminded that it is only through Christ’s sacrifice that we have been able to become his (1 Corinthians 11:17-34).
A collection is taken each Sunday. This is when members are asked to give to support the work of this congregation (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15). As you wouldn’t ask a guest at your table to “pay for their meal,” so we do not ask or expect our guests to give.
At various times during our assemblies prayers will be offered by different members (1 Timothy 2:1-8). These reflect our dependence upon God and our desire for his leading in our lives.
The Bible will be read and referred to quite often. Whether it is a public reading of scripture or preaching (1 Timothy4:13), the Bible serves as the basis for all that is taught.
Frequently there will also be a greeting, occasionally a time when we’re asked to greet one another, and always announcements to let those in attendance know what is going on in the life of the church. For more information on this be sure to pick up one of our bulletins.
