This page details what to expect during a "typical" service at STCOC. Currently our scheduling and order of service is slightly different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See our Updates page for more information or contact the church office at 607.271.9575.

What to expect.....

We find that people often wonder what it is like to attend a different church service. The design of this page is to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit Southern Tier Church of Christ.

BIBLE STUDY

We use the Bible as the authority for all of our studies. Each Sunday morning, we have a time of Bible study, with classes for each age group.
Acts 17:11

SERMON

Romans 10:17, 2 Timothy 4:2, Colossians 1:25-29

SINGING SONGS OF PRAISE

 Following morning classes we have a short break and we sing a few congregational songs (a blend of hymns and modern worship songs) before moving into the time of communion during the Lord's Supper.
Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, Psalm 150

FELLOWSHIP

Hebrews 10:25, Acts 2:42, Romans 12:4-8, Hebrews 3:13

THE LORD'S SUPPER

We do follow the example set in scripture and participate in the Lord's supper each week.

1 Corinthians 11:23-29,

SINGING SONGS OF PRAISE

 Once again, we do start each service with congregational singing.
Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16, Psalm 150

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.
1 Timothy 2:1-4
