When are your worship services?
Sundays: 9:30am Worship Service & 11:45am Catechism Service
Where are your worship services?
We meet in the sanctuary at the Littleton Seventh-day Adventist Church, 7400 S. Windemere St.
What should I do with my kids?
We have some very specific goals for the education of our children. Instead of growing up in the church "assuming" they know the gospel, we want to be intentional in instructing them in the faith. We refuse to entertain them! (Elitch Gardens/Six Flags does a much better job). We want them to know what the Bible says, what it teaches and what that means for living Coram Deo. Our children are welcomed into worship with us. There is a "cry room"/nursery in the back of the sanctuary, but we encourage and are not disturbed by "restless kids." These are the sounds of the Covenant.
What should I wear?
We hope you'll wear whatever makes you comfortable. You'll find plenty of people dressed casually (jeans, polo shirts) and others dressed a little more formally (slacks, dresses, skirts). Just come as you are.
What is a Worship Service like? (Be sure to get a bulletin from our greeters before entering the sanctuary. All the liturgy and songs are printed in it.)
The liturgy of Coram Deo’s worship service is traditional in nature and patterned after that of John Calvin’s 16th Century worship service in Geneva, Switzerland. We sing songs emphasizing the Psalms and traditional hymns with simple accompaniment.
Elements of the worship service, such as the recitation of the Apostle’s Creed and the Lord’s Prayer have been part of worship services in Protestant churches for centuries and only in recent years have been excluded. We have brought them back into our worship for very good reasons. Those reasons follow in this explanation of the various parts of our liturgy.
To learn more about the liturgy of our Worship Service, check under the "Our Worship Service" section.
The liturgy of the Catechism service is very similar to the Worship service.
When is Communion celebrated?
Communion is celebrated each Sunday, during the 9:30am Worship service.
Communion is a Holy Sacrament and as such we follow the Biblical teachings concerning its observance. The Lord's Supper is supervised by the Elders according to scripture. All who wish to participate are admonished to examine themselves regarding the following: 1) believe the gospel as summarized in the Apostle's Creed, 2)have been baptized, 3) are a member of a Christian Church, and 4)confess the real presence of Christ in the sacrament. Children must have made a public profession of faith before communing.
"The Lord's Supper is a confirmation of our faith, a most sure proof of our union and communion with Christ, who feeds us with his body and blood unto everlasting life, as truly as we receive these signs from the hands of the minister." - Zacharias Ursinus
What do People do with the time between the morning worship service and the catechism service?
There is usually about an hour between services. During that time everyone (especially visitors) is invited to refreshments (coffee, tea, drinks and snacks) and conversations to get to know one another better. There is also Sunday School for the children and a catechism class for all ages during this fellowship time.
Usually we have a fellowship luncheon once a month in order to extend our time together. All visitors are also welcome to join us.
