Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating experience.We don't want you to feel awkward or intimated. We will do our best to help you feel at home. Whether you’ve been a Christian for years, or simply checking things out for the first time, we look forward to seeing you at Sovereign King Church.
We are a new church plant and not into big flashy productions. We believe that Jesus is enough. We meet in the home of one of our pastors for now though we are looking for a more permanent place. We usually have some light snacks and a time of fellowship before we head to the basement to begin our worship.
Here’s some of what you can expect during our worship time.
SingingOur small worship team leads us with songs that declare God’s truth and promises. We sing both the great hymns of the faith, the psalms from God's word, and more modern praise songs. As we sing, our focus is not on ourselves, but on the mighty God who made us and calls us to Himself.
PrayerEach week we have the privilege of joining together before God in prayer. Whether we are asking for His forgiveness, praying for our nation’s leaders, or thanking Him for providing, we approach God’s throne with boldness and confidence, knowing that our heavenly Father hears and answers us.
Scripture Reading The Bible is the very Word of God. Hearing God’s word read is life-changing. It convicts and heals us by the power of the Holy Spirit. We read from both the Old and New Testament regularly.
Catechism Catechism is a funny sounding word but it simply means to teach Biblical truth in an orderly way. This is typically done with questions and answers to be explained and memorized. This has been a practice that Christians have done for centuries. We use the Westminster Shorter Catechism and A Baptist Catechism for Boys and Girls. Children love this part of our worship because they get to interact with the worship leaders.
Preaching/Teaching We believe that the Bible is the ultimate authority for all of life. When God's word is preached and taught, God is glorified, man is humbled, Jesus is honored, and lives are changed. 2 Timothy 4:2 says "Preach the word. Be ready in season and out of season. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. The kind of preaching and teaching that God wants must convince, rebuke, and exhort. This isn't always the thing our sinful hearts want to be confronted with, but if we are careful not turn our hearts from hearing truth, godly preaching will not only convict our sinful hearts but heal them.
Children Sovereign King Church believes that children are a gift and a blessing. The family is the essential building block of civilization. We believe that children are a vital part of every local church. We do not offer any "children's church" as we believe children are a vital part of the church family. Families are encouraged to worship together. We know that having kids in worship with us may mean there is a little more noise. But we wouldn't have it any other way. You might not think your children are listening at a young age but you will be surprised at how much biblical truth they pick up. So, bring your family with kids of all ages and worship the risen Savior with us.
