One of the men is in charge of leading the group through the assembly. We change up the order of events from week to week on a fairly consistent basis. The leader determines the general order of the assembly and typically explains their intentions at the beginning. During the course of a typical Sunday assembly, we:
- Sing praises to GOD.
- Discuss the previously-selected Bible study topic or Scripture.
- Observe the Lord's Supper.
- Pray together, often taking prayer requests and lifting those previously-mentioned requests from our group's Prayer Requests list.
- Discuss specific giving opportunities, and, when needed we collect money to take care of those needs.
- Enjoy a fellowship meal together.
Each person is encouraged to participate actively throughout our assembly. This encourages personal (and group) growth and helps us live like the family we are in Christ.
We also typically meet together on Wednesdays for a period of Bible study or singing. As with Sundays, the leader and often the topic or text for study is assigned beforehand and the leader leads us through the study. We have found this an effective means of motivation and inspiration between our Sunday gatherings.
We love having visitors join us, and we'd very much like to share our enthusiasm and walk with Jesus with you as well. From time to time we move our assembly location and meeting times. For information on assembly times and locations, click here.

In May 2014, Tim Harris published an e-book about our experience with this house church. Its content is broad enough to benefit any Bible student, regardless of their interest in house churches. It includes an in-depth explanation of our typical assembly format. Download House Church Reflections for free today by clicking here.
