A Traditional Church Service

Traditional or Home Church?

At LightHouse Discipleship Center regardless of what our style of gathering may consist of, in everything we do, we are very committed to Our Mission & Purpose of enabling others become Established in their Identity, Equipped in His Word and Empowered to Fulfill their Destiny.

Therefore, just like the early church who went from house to house, our core values, mission and purpose exemplify our steadfast commitment to continue "...steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers." (Acts 2:42).

Traditional Church Service

A Traditional Church Service is where many people gather and follow a prescribed order of service that is centered around teaching the Gospel. It generally takes place in a church building that will house many people. People generally sit in rows facing the podium or pulpit to be able to see the person conducting/overseeing the service. Being sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit, a worship team will lead the congregation in a time of corporate praise and worship. Then a Message is given by the pastor.

A Traditional Church Service has the ability to touch many people at each service. Therefore, it usually requires a team of leaders to facilitate such a service. Generally there is less intimacy and interaction because of the number of people attending the service but many times there will be different programs offered which will allow people to get involved in smaller groups according to their interest or desire to foster more intimacy as the family of God.

In the Everett's House Church the services are currently small, therefore we are able to maintain the same intimacy of a Home Church Service. However, our service format is traditional in style in that we begin with a corporate time of praise and worship, followed by a time of teaching from our pastor as he is lead by the Holy Spirit. We conclude all of our gatherings with the opportunity for personal ministry, prayer and fellowship if desired.

Home Church Gathering

A Home Church Gathering is where a small group of believers (usually between 2 – 20) meet as a family and share a meal together as they encourage one another and share what the the Lord is doing in their lives. In a Home Church Gathering we share and study the Word together and pray together very similar to a Bible Study. People generally sit in a circle so as to be able to see and interact with the each other as we share  the moment together.

Home Church Gatherings are generally small, therefore they generally more intimate than a traditional church service. As we get to know and build relationships with one another, we get to live our lives together as a family. Our heart and purpose is to build up, encourage and edify one another  as the Body of Christ: being knit together and edifying itself in love (Eph. 4:16).

In a House Church, our purpose is to continue"...steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers."  (Acts 2:42). Our pastor oversees these gatherings, endeavoring to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in order to facilitate discipleship and an edifying atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to come together as Paul has instructed the church: "...whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done foredifying" (1 Cor 14:26)
