Joe Anady and Mike Thezier provide an overview of the liturgy (order of worship) of Emmaus Christian Fellowship and seek to explain the biblical and theological rationale behind it. Listen in to find out why we do what we do in our corporate worship on the Lord’s Day.
Joe Anady provides an overview of his time in Rockford, Illinois where he attended the General Assembly of the Association of Reformed Baptist Church of America (ARBCA). Joe discusses what went on at the General Assembly, his impressions, and what’s next.
A few years ago, Emmaus Christian Fellowship decided to do away with Children’s Church (Children’s Ministry) and to bring the little ones into the worship service with the rest of the congregation. Sometimes the assumption is that we made this move because we lacked the resources to sustain a full blown Children’s Ministry. That is not the case. In this episode, Mike Thezier and Joe Anady spend a little time discussing the rationale behind the decision and also present some advice to parents for getting the most out of the worship service with the kids.
Joe Anady and Mike Thezier discuss how Emmaus goes about Fencing the Table and why – how we invite people to the Table in a way that makes the biblical meaning and significance of the Supper clear. What kind of meal is it? What does it symbolize? Who is invited? What dangers are associated with partaking in an unworthy manner?
