What to Expect
Visiting the Bentonville Church of Christ
When you are a guest with us, we want you to feel comfortable, so here is a snap shot of what you can expect when you visit.
Our door greeters will help you with any needs you might have. In our auditorium, feel free to sit anywhere.
One of the unique things about our church is that the music is ‘a cappella;’ that is, we sing without the use of musical instruments. We love the beauty and joy of worshiping God from our hearts with our voices. We believe you will find the singing meaningful and uplifting, with everyone being invited to participate.
Prayers and Sermon
When you visit you will hear spoken prayers and a lesson from God’s Word. We believe in the power of prayer and God’s Word, so these aspects will take up a considerable amount of our worship time. The lesson is normally 25-30 minutes long. We hope you find it refreshing, Bible-centered and applicable to your life.
Communion will also be included in our worship time. During this time, trays of unleavened bread (symbolizing the body of Jesus) and cups of grape juice (symbolizing the blood of Jesus) will be passed throughout the auditorium. Communion is open to all and participation is left to the individual.
Trays will also be passed to collect a weekly financial offering. As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation.
When you come into our church, you will be greeted and receive a “Church Bulletin” and a “Communication Card.” Members and guests are asked to fill out the card and pass it to the end of the aisle at the end of service. The card will provide us with contact information so that we can send you a small gift and thank you for being our guest. On the back of the card, there is a place for prayer and information requests. You will also find some sermon “Next Steps” – practical ways to put the lesson into practice during the week.
