Thanks for your interest, and we hope you do have an opportunity to visit one of our congregations .

Our meetings begin with congregational singing, followed by a prayer. (Our congregational hymns are Psalms or biblical themes set to music.) After that, an elder or someone designated by the pastor gives a 10- to 12-minute message. More congregational singing follows, and after some announcements, often a choir or musicians present special music.

The main message lasts approximately one hour and is normally delivered by either the pastor or a designated elder. These messages provide guidance, encouragement and education to the membership, as well as help us worship God. The service ends with another congregational hymn and prayer.

For more information, please read our booklet This is the United Church of God .
