1042 Worship

 

What we do


1042 meets every Sunday night at the Fairfeild Inn Marriott near Spring Creek and 121 at 5909 Stone Creek Drive The Colony, TX 75056. Follow the signs to the meeting room. The Worship service begins at 5:15pm and ends around 6:30pm. This time includes twice a month sharing in the Lord's Supper together, Worship in music, Prayer, Scripture reading from the Apostles and the Prophets and Teaching/Preaching from the Word. The early church gatherings according to the New Testament and into the second century included Teaching/Preaching, Scripture reading, Worship, Prayer, and before the Lord's Supper they would have fellowship with one another. We have all these ingredients in our Worship service as we want to worship the King of kings the way the earliest disciples of the Apostles did.

Why We Do it


According to Luke, the earliest disciples in Jerusalem gathered to participate in these holy things: "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved" (Acts 2:42-47).

 

According to the first great apologist of the church, Justin Martyr (AD 150), these were the fundamental ingredients of the church gatherings in the second century: "And on the day called Sunday, all who live in cities or in the country gather together to one place, and the memoirs of the apostles or the writings of the prophets are read, as long as time permits; then, when the reader has ceased, the president verbally instructs, and exhorts to the imitation of these good things. Then we all rise together and pray, and, as we before said, when our prayer is ended, bread and wine and water are brought, and the president in like manner offers prayers and thanksgivings, according to his ability, and the people assent, saying Amen; and there is a distribution to each, and a participation of that over which thanks have been given, and to those who are absent a portion is sent by the deacons. And they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who helps the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need." (First Apology 67).
