Our Services

What are services like?
We will sing a number of songs. We usually stand up to sing, but you can remain seated if you wish. We normally have an open-prayer time. This gives people in the congregation the chance to pray out loud if they wish. Don’t worry, you will not be asked or expected to do this. We usually remain seated when we pray, quietly listening. We usually kneel, but you may do so if you wish. During a Sunday service after the prayer time we normally introduce the pastor then he will get up to preach. He will read from the Bible, and then spend time explaining the passage and applying it to people’s lives. Once a month (3rd Sunday of the month normally) we have Communion. You do not have to be baptized or a church member to eat the bread or drink the wine- we just ask that you love the Lord Jesus and understand that He died in your place on the cross, and have asked Him to be Lord of your life.

What is the community like?
We have a Mix Community that our church loves everyone. We promote LOVE, and We Are a Church That Change People Lives.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We believe that the people are the Church. The building is where the Church meets. What to expect when you come to Church? We appreciate that going to a church for the first time can be quite overwhelming and even uncomfortable. We want you to know that you will be made most welcome. What should I Wear? You will find at Morrisania Family Worship Center International that some like to come in suits, others in more casual garb. God is more interested in the heart than your outward appearance- and so are we. Where should I Sit? There are no reserved seats; sit where you are most comfortable. But the front seats are for Deacons Only.
