WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR WORSHIP
What Should I Wear?
From the moment you walk through the front doors on Sunday morning, we believe that you will find the Tracy church to be a very warm, loving and accepting place--we're a family. You will notice that some are wearing suits, some slacks and a shirt and some jeans. Some ladies will have on a dress or skirt, others will be wearing pants. The bottom line is that as long as you are dressed decently no one will notice what you are wearing. We pride ourselves in focusing on what is on the inside, not on what you are wearing. We are here to worship God and not have a fashion show.
Music is a gift from God, its only fitting that he asks us to incorporate it into our worship to him. Here in Tracy we sing "a cappella", inviting everyone to join in on the songs you know.
After a few songs, a reading from the Word and a prayer we will begin our preparation to partake of the Lord’s Supper. We do this every Sunday as a part of our worship to remember the death, burial and resurrection of our Savior. We serve an “open communion” which means that the trays will be passed along the aisles for all who consider themselves Christians and in fellowship with Jesus to partake. The emblems represent the broken body of the Savior and his blood that was shed for our sins.
Every Sunday our preacher presents a lesson from the Word. The messages are typically about 25-30 minutes in length and relevant to what is going on in our lives and in the world today. They are intended to help us know Jesus and how we can better live for him.
At the end of our service, we take up a free will offering. This is done as an act of worship and for the sake of carrying on the mission of the Lord’s church. As a visitor you are welcome to participate, but its by no means expected.
