We are so excited about what God is doing at The Hand of God Ministry, and we are glad to have you be a part of it. So, to provide the best church service possible for all who attend, we have made available a guide for church etiquette to help our services run smoothly and with minimal distractions.
Church etiquette is a set of rules that govern behavior in the house of God. It comes from the same principle as the etiquette that governs behavior in polite society. With that said, let's look at some basic rules of etiquette.
Firstly, we always want to give the highest honor to the Word of God coming from the one delivering it and to those receiving it. Please observe the following guidelines:
Include children: We welcome children and believe they are an essential part of our church family. However, we kindly request that parents supervise their children to ensure they do not disrupt the service.
Dress code: While we do not enforce a strict dress code, we encourage everyone to dress modestly and respectfully when coming to worship.
Talking and moving: During the service, please refrain from talking or moving around unnecessarily to minimize distractions for those around you.
Babies crying: We understand that babies can sometimes be fussy or cry during the service. If your baby becomes restless, please take them to our SuperKids room to minimize disruption.
All electronics are silent and out of sight: Please ensure that all electronic devices are switched off or set to silent mode to avoid disturbances during the service. Additionally, it is important to keep them out of sight to maintain focus on worship and the preaching of God's Word.
Showing up on time: We value punctuality and encourage everyone to arrive on time for the service. This shows respect for those leading and participating in song and the Word of God.
Please don't leave once the service starts: Out of respect for the speaker and fellow attendees, we kindly request that you refrain from leaving once the worship service has commenced, except in cases of emergencies.
No food or drinks in the church, except in the designated area: To maintain the cleanness of the church, we kindly ask that you refrain from consuming food, drinks, gum, or candies inside the sanctuary.
Thank you for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our church etiquette guide. Your cooperation in adhering to these guidelines will help create a more focused and meaningful worship experience for everyone. By following these guidelines, we can create an environment where God's presence is felt, and everyone can experience an uplifting and undisturbed time of fellowship. We thank you for being a part of The Hand of God Ministry and look forward to growing together in faith.
