"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. - Hebrews 10:24-25
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God." - Colossians 3:16
"Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!" -Psalm 105:2-3
We gather for worship at 10:00 AM
At Eatonville Baptist Church, we worship together as families. We believe children learn best when they worship with their parents. We're conscious of the fact that little ears are present, yet we do not water down our expositional preaching of God's Word.
To help keep the kids engaged, we provide a "kid's notes" sheet for little ones to color and take notes.
Children, age six and up, worship with their parents.
Nursery services are provided for children, birth through three-years-old.
A preschool program is offered for kids, four through six-years-old.
Our Typical Order of Service
1 - Call to Worship
In our call to worship, we welcome one and all, share important announcements, and then stand for our call to worship hymn or song.
3 - Hymns and Songs of Praise
After Scripture reading and the pastoral prayer, we typically sing two or three hymns or songs of praise. These are selected to support the Scriptures read and the content of the message being preached.
5 - Sermon
Our sermons are typically expositional teachings from God's Word. Understanding and applying Scripture to our lives is our deepest desire.
7 - Baptisms
In addition to communion, we also celebrate baptisms. We hold that baptism in and of itself does not save anyone, but instead it is a necessary and public confession of one's rebirth into life with Christ.
2 - Scripture and Prayer
Scripture is central to all we do in our Sunday worship gathering. We practice the "public reading of Scripture", reading through selected passages which are read by various members of our congregation. This is followed by a pastoral prayer of repentance led by one of our elders.
4 - Congregational Prayer
After praise and worship, and before the sermon, we take time for our congregational prayer of petition and thanksgiving, which is lead by a member of the elder board, worship team, or congregation.
6 - Communion
At least once each month, and typically on the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion together. All who believe in Christ as Savior and Lord, and whose consciences are clear, are invited to participate.
