WHAT TO EXPECT

We find that people often wonder what it is like to attend a different church service. The purpose of this page is to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit Southern Tier Church of Christ. Watching past services on our Sermons page or our weekly live stream on Facebook or YouTube can also give you an idea of what to expect.

PRAYER

We publicly take praise reports and things to thank God for and then we take prayer requests. We type them onto a screen so that each person can see the requests that are made. We then print the list and distribute to each prayer group. We are divided into prayer groups and we pray together.
