There are to be 3 open seats between family or friend groups.  Upon entering, attendees will be guided to their seats by ushers, filling the front rows first. At the end of the service, rows will be dismissed one at a time from the back first.

Not Available/ Not Provided: Nursery and Sunday school classes will not be provided. There are no changing tables in the bathrooms. Drinking fountains will be turned off. Coffee will not be provided. Communion will not be served. Communion will not be served.

Patience And Love: We understand we cannot meet everyone’s hopes, needs, and expectations. A limited return to services can cause division between members, or between the church and the community. The TPC family needs to be ready to embrace imperfect decisions in an imperfect situation. Some will think that the church is being too stringent and others that it is not stringent enough. Please be patient and loving.

Questions To Ask When Looking for a Local Church

Posted by Jeremy McKeen on

 

Preaching and Teaching:

  • Is the Gospel being proclaimed faithfully or does it encourage “easy-believism?”
  • Is the Word of God being taken out of context or handled correctly?
  • Are the people of God being exhorted from the Word of God to live holy lives?
  • Are the people falling more and more in love with Christ?
  • Are the people learning more and more about the power of God or the power of positive thinking?

Worship and Church Culture:

  • Are the Scriptures being read in the worship service?
  • Is prayer and Christ-centered songs an integral part in the worship service?
  • Are the sacraments (Baptism and Lord’s Supper) being rightfully administered?
  • Does the atmosphere reflect a church that is full of love and grace in truth?
  • Is there a spirit of joy and reverence for the presence of God?
  • Is the glory of God the motive behind the worship or the entertainment of people?

Evangelism and Discipleship:

  • Is the church growing numerically? If so, do these new people know the gospel and are they being discipled?
  • Is there a plan to make disciples? If so, are the leaders intentional about discipling every member?
  • Are the leaders equipping the saints for the work of the ministry?
  • Is there church discipline? Are the leaders willing to admonish people and kick people out if necessary to protect the sheep from the wolves?
  • Are the elders and deacons godly men of humility and integrity who are involved in the work of the ministry?

Leadership and Church Government:

  • Are there checks and balances (accountability) in place for the leaders?
  • Is there a constitution and by-laws (some sort of standards) that the leaders are held to?
  • Is the statement of faith visible on paper and also in practice?
  • Do the leaders foster a culture of apathy towards applying the truth of God’s Word to everyday living or do they create an atmosphere for growth?

Outreach and Cultural Mandate:

  • Are the widows, orphans, and the poor being cared for in word and deed?
  • Is the church reaching the nations and the local community with the gospel?
  • Are the leaders willing to speak openly about the issues of our day?
  • Are there gospel-centered ministries to unbelievers in need?
  • Are the leaders intentional about teaching people a biblical worldview and influencing culture?

All these questions can be summed up with one question …

“Can I stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and honestly say that this local church is the best place I could find to care for my and my family’s soul?”
