What To Expect

 

 

 

 

Common questions we are often asked

What time does service start?

At FWWM Church we are all about glorifying God, representing Jesus Christ and maturing believers. We hope you will join us for worship at our Sunday morning (10:45 AM) and Thursday night (7:00 PM) services. As a warm-up to each service please join us 15 minutes prior for a time of fellowship and prayer.

How long is service?

Services typically last for 1 hour, 30 minutes [depending on the Holy  Spirit’s leading]. Our aim is not to just take up time, but whole-heartedly worship God in spirit and truth, as he has commanded us to do. At FWWM Church we believe that worshiping the God who created and redeemed us should be expressed in 3-Dimensions; in Song/Dance, in Giving and by hearing and obeying the His word. Now that’s true worship!

Opening and prayer

We begin with opening words and prayer from one of our pastors or ministry leaders. This is a time in which we focus our hearts and minds on the love, grace, mercy, awesomeness of our God.

Warm welcomes and greetings

After praise and worship, we welcome newcomers by simply having them raise their hand so we can acknowledge their presence. Immediately following this, we encourage everyone to greet each other. We invite new guest to fill out a information card.

Announcements and special selection

After the offering is collected one of our pastors or a ministry leaders leads us in a prayer over the offering given.

Right after the offering prayer, church announcements are presented. If time permits, a special song selection, by a church member or special guest is performed.

Closing prayer and personal ministry

After hearing from God’s word, Pastor closes in prayer. At this time, pending on the leading of the Holy Spirit, we open the alter (stage area) up for one on one prayers with our pastors and church leaders. Whatever your needs are (salvation, family, employment, spiritual and physical healing) we, by faith, know our God is able and gracious to answer that need. During alter service we continue to worship God in song and adoration for who He is and what He has do in our lives.

Personal prayer and fellowship

Following the service, there are ministry leaders available for prayer and spiritual counseling. There is also plenty of time to fellowship and to get to know each other better. This is a vital part of who we are as a church, we believe we are “Saved to Serve”. In doing so, we demonstrate Jesus Christ’s love and sacrifice by how we serve and fellowship with one another.

What should I wear?

Come as you are!  We want you to feel comfortable when you join us for a worship service.  People wear anything from jeans and t-shirts to business casual.

Do you have a children's ministry?

After the welcome and greeting time, children ages 3 to 12 will be excused to their classroom.

Your children will look forward to Sundays and Thursdays at FWWM church. From infants to elementary age, your child will have fun while learning about Jesus in an environment designed for their age group. We have created a safe environment for them through trained and experienced teachers.

Worship through song and dance

We outwardly express our worship to God through songs of adoration, thanksgiving, praise, as a response to what our God has done for us. Our worship team uses contemporary and traditional songs selected for their strong biblical content and sing-ability.  We sing a mixture of contemporary, traditional and Hymn styles of music.  Members and guest are encouraged to sing, clap, dance, stand or just read along with the lyrics. We are true head and heart worshippers.

Worship by giving

After welcome and greeting we transition into the second dimension of our worship, giving of the tithes and offerings. During this time anyone can give, but are under no obligation to do so. While the offering is being collected, worship music is played in the background.

Worship by hearing and obeying

We outwardly express our worship to God through songs of adoration, thanksgiving, praise, as a response to what our God has done for us. Our worship team uses contemporary and traditional songs selected for their strong biblical content and sing-ability.  We sing a mixture of contemporary (Elevation Worship), traditional (I’ll Fly Away) and Hymn (Amazing Grace) styles of music.  We encourage members and guest to sing along, clap their hands or stand and read along with the lyrics.

Church ordinances

Once a month we also have communion (the Lord’s Supper) together. This we believe is a command that our Lord gave his church to be done in remembrance of his broken body and shed blood on the cross for us. Like communion, baptism is a command from our Lord, demonstrating a person had become a Christian by placing their faith in Jesus Christ’s death on the cross for their sins, and then being resurrected from the dead. Christian baptism are practiced by request.
