What to Expect Sunday Mornings

On July 4, 2021 we returned to in-person Sunday School (8:45 a.m.) and Worship (10:00 a.m.) inside the facilities at 8130 Lott Cary Rd, Providence Forge, VA 23140 in Charles City County, VA. Our campus is pretty spread out, so for reasons of safety and security, you may find a locked door when you try to enter. Please, if you are on the Lott Cary Rd., or front side of the facility, come to the glass doors under the Portico and our greeters will meet you there. If you are entering from the Samaria Lane side, or rear of the facility, please enter at the door at the top of the wheelchair ramp. Another option for Worship at 10:00 is to remain seated in your car in the rear parking lot and listen to the worship service broadcast over the public address system or the FM Radio Station 105.1. The Worship Service is also streamed live on FaceBook Live at Samaria Baptist and later uploaded to our YouTube Channel at Samaria Baptist Church CCCVA. If you come at 8:45 a.m. for Sunday School, a.k.a. Bible Study for Every Age, the Greeters will help you find an appropriate classroom as there are 8 children’s classes (one for each two years of age as of the last Sept. 30th) and 5 adult classes including a 20 Something Class for young adults.

Attire is mixed with both "coat and tie", business casual and jeans. Children are always welcome in the worship service and as the need for a nursery for the youngest children grows, the nursery will be staffed. To protect everyone against the COVID-19 virus while inside the buildings, we strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask, social distance, wash hands, and use hand sanitizer often. Water fountains are shutdown, so if you anticipate the need for refreshment while on-site, please bring water with you. We are looking forward to the day when we can again share snacks and meals as part of our fellowship, but we are not there yet. 

Our worship style is probably best characterized as "blended" with contemporary music and traditional hymns and piano. Since the pandemic, most of our music remains pre-recorded as we are not yet allowing use of the choirs or congregational singing. While we do not expect our guests to support the church financially, you will observe ushers and offering plates setup at the entrances for anyone wanting to give to church ministries. We will not be going row-to-row collecting an offering as part of the worship service. Electronic giving is available through a PayPal link on the homepage of this website.

Holy Communion is celebrated during the worship hour on the first Sunday each month. If you are a baptized believer of Jesus Christ and want to participate in Communion, please receive the communion elements as you enter the Worship Center on those days.

Worship of God, the Creator of the universe and father of our Savior Jesus Christ is what we do on Sunday mornings. Bible based preaching is at its core with worship through prayer, song, testimony, and offering rounding out our expression of love for and devotion to God. Bible Study for Every Age, or as we call it "Sunday School" starts us off at 8:45 a.m., with worship at 10:00 a.m. God is good and worthy of all our worship. Please come join us.
