A FRIENDLY CHURCH IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Posted on by

Hughson Church of Christ                                                                                             1519 Tully Rd.  –  Hughson, CA 95326

The Hughson Church of Christ is located between the cities of Modesto and Turlock inland from the San Francisco Bay Area in Central California.  We are a friendly church reaching out as far and wide as we can with the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the only One who can save our world (John 14:6).

People are sometimes a little apprehensive about visiting a new church. We want you to know that you can be at ease about visiting our congregation.  The Hughson church of Christ is an outgoing, friendly church. Our membership could be described as a diverse group made up of people from all walks of life.  We are from all races and nationalities; we simply work and worship together as New Testament Christians (Acts 10:34-35).

Every effort is made to allow visitors to feel comfortable.  Our services generally open with a brief welcome. The song leader then leads the congregation in a few songs  followed by observing communion with the Lord Jesus by partaking of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:23-29).  Following this there will be more songs and a prayer, then the preacher delivers a sermon from the Bible. All are encouraged to bring their Bibles and follow along as he leads the study (2 Timothy 2:15).

At the sermon’s end, the Lord’s invitation is offered (Matthew 11:28-30) for any who want to become Christians or rededicate their lives to God. There is no coercion.  Members make a financial offering for carrying on the work of the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).  The service lasts about an hour and concludes with a song and prayer. Following the worship our members will want to greet one another and especially introduce themselves to our Guests.

The Hughson church of Christ strives to be a ‘visitor friendly’ church. Since many of our members were at one time visitors themselves, we know how it feels on a first visit. We make it our goal to be the friendliest church you have ever visited. We aim to treat others the way we want to be treated, like Jesus said (Matthew 7:12). The services are simple, reverent, practical, and meaningful.

You’ll receive a warm greeting and (if you would like to come early for the Bible Classes prior to worship) someone will assistance you in locating your class (or your children’s class).  Here is our weekly Schedule of Services:

Sunday Morning Bible Classes (for all ages)       9:45 a.m.                                             Sunday Morning Worship                                    10:45 a.m.                                        Sunday Evening Worship                                     6:00 p.m.

Wednesday Midweek Bible Study                        7:00 p.m.

People are sometimes a little apprehensive about visiting a new church. We want you to know that you can be at ease about visiting our congregation.

We are from all races and nationalities; we simply work and worship together as New Testament Christians (Acts 10:34-35).

Every effort is made to allow visitors to feel comfortable. Our services generally open with a brief welcome from our minister. The song leader then leads the congregation in a few songs. An opening prayer is offered, followed by another song, and then the preacher delivers a sermon from the Bible. All are encouraged to bring their Bibles and follow along as he leads the study (2 Timothy 2:15).

At the sermon’s end, the Lord’s invitation is offered (Matthew 11:28-30) for any who want to become Christians or rededicate their lives to God. There is no coercion. During the Sunday morning service, the communion is observed by partaking of unleavened bread and fruit of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:23-29). Members make a financial offering for carrying on the work of the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). The service lasts about an hour and concludes with a song and prayer.

WHEN YOU VISIT….

Bible-based, Christ-centered, Heaven-bound

When you visit, you will meet people who, just like you, sincerely want to follow the teachings of the Bible and please God with their lives. You’ll find that every sermon and class is based on the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17). In fact, members and visitors are urged to bring their own Bibles and follow along. We still strive to do Bible things in Bible ways, and to call Bible things by Bible names — nothing more or nothing less. We seek to exalt Christ in our songs, prayers, sermons, and lives (Colossians 1:18). An air of hope fills the church as we think of the beautiful promise of heaven for God’s faithful children (Revelation 21:1).

Lord’s Supper observed each Sunday

The Hughson church of Christ has communion every week, just as they did in New Testament times (cf. Acts 20:7). It is a highlight of the week to commemorate Christ’s death and celebrate His promised return.

Beautiful singing

The whole congregation sings a capella (without mechanical instruments), just as they did in New Testament times (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). Many first-time visitors comment on how beautiful the singing is. Some say they find it easier to focus on the song’s meaning since the words are more easily understood than with musical accompaniment.

Free materials

You will find free booklets, pamphlets, tracts, and back issues of publications displayed in the entrance areas. These are free to any member or guest. Often there will be study materials distributed during Bible classes and worship services. A personal home Bible study (open Bible or video) is available for those who want to know more.

A place for everyone

Christ’s church is made up of all kinds of people (1 Corinthians 12:1; Galatians 3:27-28). You will find members of all races, educational backgrounds, and economic levels feel comfortable in our services. We mean it when we say, ‘Everybody is welcome.’

Emphasis on family and Bible school

The Hughson church of Christ places a great emphasis on Bible school. We feel that children are important, and that our God-given responsibility is to assist parents in teaching them about their origin, purpose, and destiny. They should come to know their Creator, Redeemer, Lord, and Savior early in life (Ecclesiastes 12:1; Matthew 19:14). They have been born into a mixed-up world, so we try to ground them in the simple truth so they will know right from wrong.

So bring your Bible and come for that visit you’ve been thinking about. We’ll save you a seat.
