Q: What happens during a Sunday Celebration Service?

The Sunday Celebration Service is a celebration time! We celebrate God’s grace, love and worship Him for who He is and what He has done in our lives every time we gather as a church family.

A typical Celebration Service in Faith will include choir presentations, singing of hymns or worship songs (depending on the worship style in each Service), prayers, exchange of greetings, silent prayer and meditation, sharing of church family news, an offering time, reciting of the Lord’s Prayer,  the sermon, and a closing prayer, also called the Benediction.

Don’t worry, on your way into the Service, you will be given a bulletin where the Order of Worship is printed. You can refer to the Order of Worship to follow along what is happening.

Q: Is there a dress code for the Service?

There is no dress code for the Services – we celebrate diversity in fashion sense! Generally, the Faith church family dresses casually, so feel free to come in your most comfortable garb, though we do ask that you refrain from wearing revealing clothes, shorts and slippers as an act of respect for God and other worshippers.

Q: Why do you sing in the church?

Isn’t the church one of the most melodious places?! Yes, songs and music are very much part of the Christian life, especially for the Methodists, for we are also known as the “singing people”!
Generally, Christians sing to remember God's Word through the lyrics in age-old hymns passed down from the generations. We also sing to express our praise and worship to God as an act of responding to His grace. Singing also expresses our unity as the family of God – imagine the sound of sweet music when we sing as one people!

Q: I don't believe in Jesus yet. Can I still come to church?

We welcome you to check us out! You don’t have to be a Christian to come to church. Just come and explore what the Christian faith is all about. There will be no coercion and we promise we won’t make you stand up! When you are ready, come and talk to any one of the pastoral staff (link to pastoral staff contacts) to find out more about God and about Jesus. For a start, you can visit our website (link to I am New to the Christian faith) to find out more.

Q: Why do you receive an offering during Service? Must I give and how much do I give?

We believe in giving as an act of worship. The Bible tells us that the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it (Psalm 24:1, NIV). Hence, when we give, we are in fact giving Him what He first gave us. When we ask Jesus to be the Lord of our lives, He is the Lord of everything we have, including our time, energy, family and finances. By giving, we express our gratitude that He is our Provider. 

God said in the Bible that He loves a cheerful giver, hence you should give out of a cheerful heart, not out of duty, coercion or grudgingly. Christians are encouraged to tithe one-tenth of their income, as per God’s command in the Bible. If you wish to tithe, you can request for a pledge card from the church office or Information Counter. You will be given envelopes for your monthly tithes, which you can drop into the offering bag. If you wish to give an offering apart from your tithes, just write a cheque or drop the cash into the offering bag. 

If you are a visitor, you are not obliged to give. We are glad you blessed us with your presence, so do not feel obligated in any way! Just let the offering bag pass by.
