Worship is the essence of our services. Join us for fellowship on Sundays starting at 9:30 a.m. for Sunday School followed by 11:00 a.m. Worship Service. Also, our mid-week Wednesday service starts at 7:00 p.m. to strengthen and refresh you during the week.
The order of our service starts out with prayer, is elevated to praise to the Lord and continues with the Biblical teaching from the Bible which is the Word of God.
We are a Spirit of God lead church which means our services are in God's hands. Our order of service may occur in this manner:
Congregational Prayer - we pray together, in one accord, as a congregation.
Praise & Worship - the Spirit of Praise establishes an environment of praise.
Sermon - Faith-based Bible Believing Word of God, preaching & teaching.
Altar calls - prayers of agreement for the healing, deliverance, intercession, etc.
Giving - tithes and offerings.
Announcements - "This Week at Sword" features announcements for the week and upcoming events.
The following ministries only occur during specific times:
- Communion Service - the taking of the body and blood of Jesus in remembrance of His crucifixion, death, burial and Resurrection. Occurs on the 1st Sunday of each month.
- Water Baptisms - the outward demonstration of a death of the old life and the birth of a new life in Christ Jesus. Occurs on scheduled dates. Listen to announcements for more details.
Please join us for Intecessory Prayer prior to mid-week service where we have an intimate time of prayer with the Lord. We begin our time of prayer at 7:00 p.m. which is then followed by Mid-Week Service.
Immediately following Intecessory Prayer is our Mid-Week service. This portion of the service provides an opportunity for deeper study in the Word of God. If you want to go deeper in your understanding of the Word of God, this is the place and time to do it.
On the fourth Sunday of every month, we present a 30-minute worship service over the airways at 9:30 a.m. at Leak and Sons located at 7838 South Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60619. Please join us in-person for the radio broadcast. If you're not able to attend, please listen to the radio service on Inspiration 1390AM.
