home church gets together on Sunday evenings for a first-century-style communal
gathering. We start by making the meal. It's a group effort. We hang out and talk
while the food is being prepared. Then, once dinner is ready, we set out the bread
and wine and gather around for a prayer to remember the sacrifice of the Lord
Jesus with which atoned for our sins and brought us together into a family. And
we take a few moments to look forward to sitting down with the Lord himself at
the wedding feast in the kingdom that we all now share through his body and blood.
Its a time of solemn remembrance and a time of celebration and hanging out. After
dinner, we gather in the living room for a time of focus on the Word of God. An
old projector allows us all to read through the Word of God together. One person
takes a turn presenting and the other guys ask questions or make comments of their
own. We encourage participation and learning through asking questions, just like
the first-century churches set up by Paul. After study time, we kick back and
relax, enjoying each others company. Its a great way to get back to the basics
of Christian gatherings and back to our historic roots as a Christian church.
