  • Very curious about...

    I'm curious...

    What is the typical service like at the Tzaddikim church? Do you pray together? Do you sing songs of worship? Do you have a bible study? How do the people dress? Do you partake in any sort of communion/Lord's supper? Are there any type of open discussions about the bible? Please share some info with me

    The Tzaddikim

    Greetings Matthew,

    I'm the 'new' guy in the church, so I might as tell you the 'new' perspective eh?

    Church is usually around the time of 11 am. Well, okay, noon. There are those like me, who try to finish off the coffee.

    Once everyone is 'situated' we begin with a song. I never sing...only I know why. They would too if I tried.

    We then pray and return to our seats.

    The 'sermon' is usually about an hour. It is really a bible study, yet a focus is given. We ask questions, make points, every once in a while have a disagreement.

    Because of me (usually) the sermon will last longer. The kids tell me to stop asking questions...

    All discussion is 'open'. Questions are incouraged...and asked.

    There are only about 20 people (give or take) that attend each week. Everyone knows eachother rather well, so dress is nice, yet not formal. If or when I'm late, I may wear a hat. Otherwise jeans, polo (?) shirt. Whatever really. Please take a shower though ( ).

    There is no 'communion' except that of eachother. The L-rd's Supper is reserved for the Passover.

    Other than that, it's a sabbath service (that is, saturday) and a whole lot of fun. We meet at members homes, because we are not near big enough to own a place.

    Other than that...it's a great time...I enjoy it. I'm the only wierdo...usually.

    Okay...off to bed. I winged this one too...hopes it's okay.

    oh yeah...and when it's fall and winter...the football games begin. Kids, you know?

    Peace,
    Scarlet

        Greetings Matthew,

        I attend church with Mr. Hyssop and Mr. IamAHebrew. Mr. Hebrew is over on the Tzaddikim Forum. I don't believe you have talked with him, he comes around now and again.

        I have only met Spying Once or twice several years ago. I am friends with Mr. Hyssop's sons, who brought me to the church while I was staying at his house.

        Turns out I slept on the couch that day...not sure if Spying ever 'really' met me. I was not a believer at that time.

        Spying I believe is the founder the the Church I attend. There has been a rift created because of a tragedy that has occured to some members. I believe Spying may return one day, possibly in the distant future.

        I do hope one day I may formally meet Spying and you.

        Have a nice day.

        Hey, Feast of Trumpets is the new Moon.

        I could use some freshing up on the Holiday.

        Peace,

          Sabbath Assembly!

          Hi Scarlet and Matthew23,

          Today, is the Day of the Great Shout for me and my family so happy high Sabbath. I will attend High Sabbath services today at 10:30 AM. Our Assembly takes place each week at that time at the Baymont Inn at Dorsett and I-270.

          This is a very small assembly. 10 adults at the most, and 3-5 young adults depending on who decides to come. Our physical service follows this pattern: We sing two hymns, have an opening prayer, then announcements, then a sermon, followed by two closing hymns and a prayer. The speakers wear coat and tie, but business casual attire is acceptable. When I am allowed to speak, I generally take off my coat.

          Most of our biblical discussion takes place during and after a common meal that we eat together each Sabbath. Two Sabbaths ago we had a great discussion on the role of women in the Assembly. This time is not a formal bible study, but a whole lot of scripture can be bantered back and forth depending upon the topic of discussion.

          I and my family will be attending the Feast of Tabernacles at the Lake of the Ozarks, September 21-28. This Feast site is hosted by the Mid-Missouri Church of God:

          I hope to meet each of you formally also. Why not drop by for Sabbath Assembly one Sabbath Day?

          Sincerely, Spying
