So for the last several months we have been having church in our home. Being a military family living away from our home church presents some unique challenges. My husband is an ordained Primitive Baptist preacher and has been preaching for over 23 years. We are used to being actively involved in whatever church we attend. So we look for churches that will permit us to do so. While we had found one to attend in our current duty station, we discovered that ultimately it was not the right fit for our family. With homeschooling and everything else going on in our lives, we made the decision to hold church services in our home.
So here are some photos of what it looked like during today’s service.
Our message for today centered on Matthew 5:13. It was interesting to hear the remarks regarding salt and its various uses in Biblical times and current days. Because of the situation, our services tend to turn more into discussions and thoughts rather than a typical sermon.
In addition to a message, we also sing songs from the Lloyd Hymnal (used by many Primitive Baptist Churches). We sang “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”, “Come Thou Fount of Many Blessings”, “Alas and did my Savior Bleed” in addition to a couple of other songs.
So that is how we had church services today, How did you spend your Sunday?
