Meetings of the Church

  • Sundays
  • Breaking Bread

    9:45 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

    This is our worship time, a time to remember our Lord Jesus, His Person and His work. In 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 we read, "For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way He took the cup also, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes."

    Participation is for true believers in Himself who are not practicing moral wrongs, nor holding teachings contrary to the Scriptures. This meeting is open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, where believing men may take part in an orderly manner. This may include requesting a hymn, or leading in prayerful thanksgiving and praise to God. It may also include the reading of an appropriate Scripture portion, with, perhaps, a comment.

    In the church meetings, leadership is the responsibility of the men. The women, according to the Scriptures, are to remain silent.

    The emphasis of the breaking bread meeting is vertical—our relationship with God. We seek to intelligently remember Jesus’ Person and work, and in particular, His work on Calvary.

  • Family Bible Hour

    11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

    We start and finish with hymns. Music and singing are important parts of worship, as seen in the Scriptures.

    We also have a teaching time. In Ephesians 4:11-13 we read, “And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ.”

    The Scriptures are the “comprehensive equipment of the man of God, and fit him fully for all branches of his work” (2 Timothy 3:17, Phillips). All believers need to become familiar with the truths of the Scriptures in order to best serve the Lord and fulfill His purposes for their lives.

  • Tuesdays
  • Men's Bible Study

    12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

    The men of the church meet for lunch on the second floor of the Platinum Bank building (6502 Slide Road) every Tuesday for in-depth study of the Word of God. The topic is typically the passage of scripture that will be covered from the pulpit the following Sunday. It is always a great time of study and discussion as we search the scriptures. "It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter." (Proverbs 25:2)

  • Wednesdays
  • Small Group Prayer Meetings

    7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

    In Acts 4:31 we read, "And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak the word of God with boldness."

    As believers we are a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) and prayer is an important part of our priestly service to God (Hebrews 13:15). Martin Luther once wrote, "Prayer is a powerful thing, for God has bound and tied Himself thereto."

    We have two different home group prayer meetings each Wednesday night. Locations for each are spread throughout the city and can change from month to month, so please contact us to find one close to you.

  • Fridays
  • Young People's Fellowship/Bible Study

    7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

    Every Friday night the young people of FreeWay meet up at the Collier's house for in-depth Bible study and fellowship. We have multiple young men that lead the study from week to week and there is always opportunity for great discussion.
