What to Expect

Frequently Asked Questions from Visitors and Newcomers

What is the worship service like?

Worship at Lone Hill Church is designed to bring the congregation into the presence of Christ for praise and thanksgiving, for believers to receive the Lord’s Supper, for prayer, and for teaching. Young and old worship God together in a friendly, casual setting. We encourage you to “come as you are” to take part in our service of praise and worship. We are a non-denominational church but follow a typical Protestant order of service that includes:

  • Worship Singing
  • Special Music
  • Reading of God’s Word
  • Expository Bible Teaching
  • The Lord’s Supper
  • Receiving of Offering
  • Praise and Prayer

Is music part of the worship service? What style of music do you use?

Our music is worshipful and tasteful. It encourages participatory worship rather than entertainment for the congregation. We sing both contemporary praise songs and Gospel hymns. Our desire is to exalt Christ and bless Him with our worship. 

How is the Word of God preached?

Pastor Sam Kim brings the truth of God’s Word every Sunday by expository, verse by verse, teaching and preaching. He seeks to honor Paul’s instructions to Timothy: “Devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.” (1 Tim. 4:13). The receiving of God’s Word into our minds and hearts is a most powerful and transforming means of grace. Bring your Bible, a humble heart, and a hunger for righteousness. We will set the table to make sure you are spiritually fed.

What is your practice of offerings/tithes?

Following our celebration of the Lord’s Supper, we receive the offerings of those who are convicted to give to the Lord’s work. (1 Cor. 16:2) Scripture instructs us that the giving of tithes and offerings is an important part of whole-hearted worship.

We take our instruction on tithing from Malachi 3:5-12 and from Matthew 6:21: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

What about your observation of the Sacrament of Communion?

Our Lord Jesus Christ introduced and commanded His Church to observe two sacraments or ordinances: Baptism (being immersed in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit after a confession of faith, Mt. 28: 18-20) and Communion (also called the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper). We practice “open communion,” which means that all baptized and confessing believers may join us in this celebration. The Lord’s Supper is presented as a specific means through which our Lord is present with His Church and provides strengthening and grace for His Church. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every Sunday in our morning worship service.

Is there child care during the worship service?

We encourage families to worship together during the morning service, but we also have Nursery childcare and Children’s Church for those age 7 and under. Additionally, we have a “cry room” if parents prefer to keep an infant or toddler with them during the worship service.

Is there Sunday School?

We offer traditional Sunday School classes, which we call “Second Hour” following the 9:30 a.m. worship.

Second Hour begins at 11:30 a.m. and includes separate classes for children, youth, and adults. This allows families to worship together, while also allowing individuals to grow in their faith and knowledge of the Word through age-appropriate teaching.
