At Adelaide PRC we understand it’s quite daunting to walk into a new church not really knowing what to expect. So, please take a look at this brief summary of what happens at our church on Sunday.
Morning Prayer Meeting
From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Sunday we gather at the Church hall to pray together. This begins with a teacher from our church giving a Bible lesson to help us focus on prayer. We share particular points for prayer, so that we can ‘bear one another’s burdens’ together. We pray for anything concerning the kingdom of God – praise and thanks to God, for particular needs for one another, within the church, our denomination and missions, or the world more broadly, including our leaders and our nation.
For the Kids
During school terms we have a Sunday School that runs from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., with singing, learning the Bible, and craft activities. All young children (3-12yrs) are welcome! We also teach teenagers from 13-18 years of age.
At around 10:30 we gather to enjoy morning tea and fellowship. Please join us for coffee, tea, and treats! We welcome visitors and will give you a prayer news, perhaps an outline of the sermon. Bibles and songbooks are available, though words are projected on the screen as well. We use the New King James version. Visitors should feel free to sit anywhere they feel comfortable.
Our worship service begins at 11:00 a.m. and runs for approximately 75-90 minutes. During this time, we worship God by singing together, praying together, reading God’s Word from the Bible. Our Teaching Elder, Duane, is the regular preacher of God’s Word to us, but we occasionally have a guest preacher. We have a strong focus on biblical preaching, and Duane typically preaches through a particular book of the Bible (currently Isaiah), with occasional topical series. We invite you to visit our sermons page and listen to the preaching. We sing a mixture of old and new songs accompanied by piano. An offering is collected during the service, which is primarily for members of our church, and therefore, visitors are not expected to contribute.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the second Sunday of each month, at the end of our regular worship. For more information about participating in the Lord’s Supper, please click here.
