Not abandoning our own assembling together, as the custom with some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more as you see the day drawing near. -Heb 10:25
We believe that all Christians in Philadelphia are part of the church in Philadelphia, and we extend an open invitation to all visitors to this website to join us in pursuing and enjoying the Lord at any of our weekly gatherings.
In all of our gatherings, we enjoy reading the Bible, praying, and singing, and our focus is always on Christ and His Word.
To facilitate this, we have several types of meetings throughout the week:
Lord’s Day Meeting
We enjoy the Lord’s table by worshipping and remembering the Lord through communal prayer and fellowship. We then practice mutual encouragement and building up through speaking Christ to one another as based on 1 Corinthians 14, where every member of the Body of Christ is encouraged to share their portion of Christ for the building up of the Church.
Time: Lord’s Day, 10AM – 12PM
Location: The church in Philadelphia Meeting Hall
Throughout the week, we also have home group meetings of around ten to thirty people. These groups meet together in different homes to enjoy God’s Word and to practice meeting together “day by day and house to house” based on Acts 2:46-47.
Time/Location: If you are interested in participating in a small group meeting, we welcome you to contact us.
Every Wednesday evening, we have a prayer meeting in mutuality where each member of His Body can function to pray for the Lord’s interests both locally and throughout the earth.
Time/Location: If you would like to join us in prayer, we welcome you to contact us.
Throughout the week, groups of believers gather to study the Word of God in a consistent manner. Bible studies vary on topical studies or cover different books of the Bible depending on the interests of the Bible study group.
Time/Location: If you are interested in joining a Bible study or starting a Bible study of your own, we welcome you to contact us and to join or begin a Bible study.
College students meet weekly on different campuses and homes across Philadelphia to sing, enjoy and fellowship over God’s Word.
Time/Location: If you are interested in participating in a college meeting, we welcome you to contact us.
Jr. High and High School Meetings
Jr. High and High school believers also meet throughout the week. These meetings allow the junior high and high school students an opportunity to experience and enjoy Christ together.
Time/Location: If you are interested in participating in a young people’s meeting, we welcome you to contact us.
Each Lord’s day, there is a special meeting for all children from kindergarten through sixth grade, where children enjoy Bible stories, singing and character points that they may know the God who created all things, and want to have a relationship with them.
