After a three year hiatus brought on by the pandemic, we finally resumed our Sunday evening services on June 4, 2023. The service has been renamed "Evenfall" which simply is a way of identifying that the service is held as the Lord's Day comes to an end. We will start slowly with a single service a month over the summer but soon plan to resume our "first and third" Sundays of the month schedule that we maintained for many years before the pandemic. Our service will be fashioned after what we know about the germinal church from Acts 2:42. So each meeting will include a time of prayer, a time of fellowship, the observance of Communion, and a message based on the apostle's teaching. In this introductory message we will concentrate on the ideas that form the crux of this form of worship as we seek to glorify God in the way the pristine church did in its germinal years.
