Order of Worship – Faith Fellowship Community Church

Gathering & Preparation 

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him. It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. (Lamentations 3:22-26).

Almighty God our Father, we humbly seek your forgiveness of our many sins. Forgive us for doubting that you are indeed good, and that you mean to do us good. Forgive us for the sins that have proceeded from doubting your goodness – our apathy toward your Word and your world, our neglect of prayer, our obsession with our appetites, our callousness toward our neighbors. Cleanse us and change us through the finished work of your dear Son, Jesus Christ our Savior.

Updated Pandemic Guidelines Regarding In-Person Corporate Worship – May 18, 2021
 
The Session & Deacons are deeply grateful to the Westminster church family for your prayers, patience, and support as we have sought wisdom in applying the recommendations of governing authorities regarding the pandemic.  We are having in-person corporate worship in the sanctuary on the Lord’s Day along with other in-person activities.  Our enhanced live-stream of our worship service is available for those who cannot attend.  For those who do attend in person, please adhere to the following guidelines:
 
  • Masks are optional.
  • Several pews in the rear of the sanctuary are reserved for those who desire to wear a mask during the entire service and sit among others who are masked as well.
  • Please enter the Church using the front, Main Street doors and wait for an usher to seat you.
  • Please wait to be seated by an usher in order to maintain our staggered seating arrangement.
  • Child care available for ages birth – 2 in our upstairs nursery.
  • Children’s Worship is available midway through the service for preschoolers and kindergartners.
  • An offering plate is located outside the sanctuary doors for your use since we will not be passing offering plates during the service.
 
We are thankful to be together in the fellowship of the church family; and yet acknowledge it is wise for some to stay at home. It is important for us to love one another well, in recognition that we have all been experiencing this season of life under God’s perfect providence. In all circumstances let us love the Lord and love one another.
