Open Church Format
At Titusville Branch Fellowship, you don't have to be a spectator. During Sunday morning services and home groups our desire is to provide the environment where people feel welcome and accepted, and also have an opportunity to grow in their giftings. We feel that an open church format is most scriptural and conducive to this end.
For this reason our services begin at 10:00am with a half hour time of fellowship before moving on to the time of worship, and then ministry in the word. We encourage families to worship together before the children are released for Sunday School around 11:15.
As Paul instructs us in 1 Corinthians 14:26, every member of the body of Christ can participate together for the edification of one another: "When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. All these must be done for the strengthening of the church."
Peter also encourages us to use our gifts for the benefit of the body and the glory of God: "As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God... so that in all things God may be glorified... " (1 Peter 4:10,11).
Our goal is to provide such an atmosphere where the members of Christ's body can cultivate their gifts, so everyone can be edified and Christ can be glorified.
