Information on Worship
A worship experience for all at Kingdom Fellowship AME Church.
We hope to see you in the sanctuary.
HOW SHOULD I DRESS FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES?
Dress according to your own tastes and means—from jeans and t-shirts to suits and dresses. Our hope is that you dress comfortably so that you are open and receptive to all of the blessings that God has in store for you at Kingdom Fellowship AME Church.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR SUNDAY SERVICES?
Kingdom Fellowship AME Church offers three Sunday worship services: 8:00am, 10:00am and 12:00pm. Because each service draws several hundred members and visitors, we recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before service starts so that you can be seated before service begins. If you are a first time guest, please look for the first-time guest parking spaces located in front of the main entrance.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILD?
In addition to the three services, Kingdom Fellowship also offers services for your children. During each Sunday worship service we have Kingdom’s Kids Nursery for children 9 months to Pre-K. On 1st and 2nd Sunday, we offer King’s Kids worship for children from K to 5th grade. Please check-in your child when you drop him/her off in the Kids check-in room. You must check your child in to participate in the worship service. Follow the signs or ask any leader how to locate this room.
On 1st and 2nd Sundays during the 10:00am service only we offer “Transit”, an exciting time for 6th and 7th grade youth to learn more about God in their own way.
On 1st Saturdays of each month youth in 8th grade and up can enjoy a unique worship experience that is relatable and relevant for teens. Remix is a worship service “designed” just for them. It is held in the Main Sanctuary. Doors open at 7:30pm and worship begins at 8:00pm.
For more information on any of these services and also for opportunities for your child to serve with us in ministry, contact Rev. Mariah Crews at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT ABOUT SERVICE DURING THE WEEK?
At Kingdom Fellowship, Rev Matthew Watley teaches Bible Study for adults at 7:00pm. We offer a Children’s Bible Study for youth in K to 5th grade and TNT (Tuesday Night Teaching) for our middle school and high school age young people at 7:00pm.
WHAT WILL I SEE AND DO WHEN I GET TO CHURCH?
When you arrive for Sunday services, you can park your car in the parking area around the building, on the street or in one of the parking lots next to the church that we have a parking agreement with. Look for the signage. Members of the Parking and Traffic Team will assist you with parking and crossing the street. We also offer Shuttle Bus service to and from the downtown Silver Spring metro station. For location and shuttle schedules, please call the church at 301-679-1100 or email email@example.com.
You will be met at the front door by our Greeters, who will welcome you with a smile and a copy of the church-wide calendar and bulletin. The Greeters can also answer any questions you might have about Kingdom Fellowship. Our friendly Welcome Desk volunteers can also provide you with any additional information you need about Kingdom Fellowship services and ministries.
Once inside, you may sit wherever you like. If you need assistance finding a seat or have any special seating needs, please ask an usher for help. An usher will be happy to assist you. The order of service can be found within the church-wide calendar.
HOW AND WHEN ARE VISITORS RECOGNIZED?
If you are a visitor or new to Kingdom Fellowship, you will be asked to stand at a specific point in the service so that you can be acknowledged and welcomed by the congregation. While you are standing, a Greeter will come over to you and present you with a Visitors Welcome Packet containing information about the church to take home with you. Please complete the Connect Card and leave it with us. Simply place it in the Tithes and Offering basket or give it to a leader at the end of the worship service. We would love to keep in contact with you.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING WORSHIP SERVICES?
Our services combine high-energy praise and worship with dynamic preaching, providing a meaningful worship experiences for all who enter our doors. If someone in the congregation is spiritually lost, our prayer is that they are saved. If someone is weighed down and heavy burdened, our hope is they leave with the expectation that God has worked it all out for their good.
If you’ve been searching, praying, and hoping for a place to belong, we say:
“Welcome to Kingdom Fellowship, where the Spirit of the Lord is in control!”
