And, every member should complete the 5 class Bible Institute series where you will learn everything from the fundamentals of our faith, to how to determine and use your spiritual gifts.
Childrenís Worship Services
Bible-oriented activities are provided for preschool and elementary-age children. At this level, young children are taught to sing, pray, memorize Scripture and learn important Biblical truths. They are instructed and led in worship at their own levels and usually provided with a light snack. For the safety of our children we ask that you sign your child in and out of Childrenís Church.
Youth Worship Services
Youth ages 12-18 can participate in a worship service that addresses their specific needs. The service is geared for their age group with dramatic interaction and creative messages. Theyíre sure to leave with a greater understanding of God and Godís purpose for their lives.
At Greater Mt. Nebo A.M.E Church you will experience everything from traditional and contemporary gospel, spirituals, hymns and contemporary praise. Feel free to join in song or dance. Freedom to praise and focus on God is the order of the day.
If you believe God has called you to serve and praise through song, consider one of the Greater Mt. Nebo choirs. Accompanied by a variety of skilled musicians, Greater Mt. Nebo worshippers are ministered to by the inspired voices of The Majestic Voices (Adult Choir), The Brotherhood Choir (Menís Choir), The Chosen Generation (Young Adult Choir), The Voices of Praise (Youth Choir), and The Sonbeams (Childrenís Choir). On special occasions the choirs combine (The Combined Voices) forming a beautiful mass choir.
Prayer and Meditation
A special time prior to each service is devoted to prayer. The lights are low and atmosphere adjusted so those seeking the Lord can come to the altar to pray or meditate prior to service. Special prayer times are available each morning via conference call, Tuesday and Friday before Bible Study, and Saturday morning from 6:00AM to 8:00AM. Additionally, the ministerial staff and stewards are assigned to visit, distribute communion and anoint the sick and shut-in and pray for and with them and others as needed. (James 5:13-16)
Our church is operated through the tithes and offerings of its members. Each service our church family is given an opportunity to give back to God in support of the ministry. This is not a time of pressured involvement rather a cheerful celebration of HIS goodness to us.
We believe giving the tithe (the first tenth of income) declares that God comes first. It recognizes His blessing and sovereign ownership of everything. It expresses faith and trust in God in every matter in life. In fact, we teach that persons are managers of Godís resources and should seek Godís guidance on how to manage not just the tithe we give, but also the remaining 90 percent of our income.
Additionally, our pastor is entirely supported by a weekly financial love offering given by the members to him for the support of him and his family. All offerings are a matter of free-will giving by the members and our guests need not feel obligated to give.
One of the high points of our services comes with the preaching of Godís Word. This is the time when the congregation hears from God. The messages are powerful and practical.
The preacher will close with an invitation to those who want to make Jesus Lord of their lives and allows them to come forward. Those who feel a need to re-commit their lives or to pray about other concerns are also invited to come. Believers are encouraged to ask for the Holy Spirit to further empower them for Christian service. Often everyone is invited to come and pray during the altar service.
Deep emotion and excitement may be demonstrated throughout a service, because everyone who calls on God in faith receives something. Jesus said, ďAsk and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Luke 11:9
If youíve wondered what our services are like, we invite you to observe and experience God in new and exciting ways. You can dress up or dress down. You donít have to be perfect either. The Bible says, ďFor all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,Ē (Romans 3:23 NIV)
So come just as you are!
