Church Etiquette Tips
  • When addressing a church group, recognitions should be giving in the following order:
  1. Reverence to GOD
  2. Recognition of Pastor (and Spouse)
  3. Recognition of other Clergy
  4. Recognition of Official Board Members
  5. Recognition of Members and Visitors
  • It is inappropriate to enter the sanctuary during scripture or prayer, as it distracts others. Christians should be gracious and considerate.
  • When the church hosts any function involving a REPAST, church members should always wait for guest to be served first.
  • As a sign of respect for God and others, please silence mobile devices and refrain from walking during service.

Bible verse of the day

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
