I. Sabbath Morning Worship — 9:30 – Noon
We worship the Lord for who He is — He is our Creator and Redeemer.
At our church we mainly sing traditional Christian favorite hymns. Sometimes we sing contemporary Christian music which are available in our hymnals. Sometimes a worshiper who offers a special message in song will use contemporary music.
A. Sabbath School — 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.
We gather together as a — Family — to start the Sabbath morning worship for Sabbath School in the sanctuary with song service and prayer. Then we hear inspiring mission stories from other lands and then we separated for Bible Study / lesson to different classes.

B. Worship Hour — 11:00 – noon
At times our kids are taking part in the worship ministry by leading the song services and also read the Scripture Reading. The Youth takes part in receiving tithes and offerings.
Before the sermon the little ones will get to hear the faith-inspiring stories. After the story time they will gather the special offering for the Vacation Bible School (VBS) ministry.
We have different sermon speakers (church elders / guests) weekly. Our Church Pastor (Pastor Jim Van Arsdale) is with us every 3rd Sabbath.
C. Fellowship Meal
Weekly we have a Fellowship Meal which follows after the Sabbath Morning Services. We serve “yummy” vegetarian / vegan foods. You can stop by and join with us for dinner.
D. Communion Service
Every quarter (3 months) we have an Open-Communion. This means — anyone who is impressed by the Holy Spirit can join and partake this memorial service of Christ’s great sacrifice.
During the Communion Service we have Foot Washing (symbol of humility) then followed by eating of the unleavened bread (crackers) ‐ representing Christ’s body and drinking of grape juice ‐ representing Christ’s blood.
II. Sabbath Afternoon
A. Prayer Support – Intercessory Prayer
After the Fellowship Meal we gather together once again at the sanctuary for Special Prayer time.
We share our concerns and also let the our church family know for people who are struggling and needing our prayers and Christ’s intervention and intercession.
Do you have any concerns that you would like us to pray for? You may contact us here and let us know.
B. Outreach – Personal Ministry
Members who are able are visiting or giving phone call to “homebound” members and friends for prayers. Other members are giving Bible studies, and / or visiting their loved ones.
Sometimes other families are gathering together in a family home for fellowship.
I hope you can visit us soon and I can personally welcome you to our local Beloit SDA Church.
In Christ’s love,
Your Beloit SDA Church family
