What does it feel like to attend a service at NTCC, New Testament Christian Church, in Graham, WA? It is a wonderful experience. From the moment you pull up, you see all the brothers and sisters walking inside. I get an excitement beating in my heart and anticipation for what is going to happen during service. Then as I walk in and say hello to fellow brothers and sisters, there is a loving spirit about it all. Knowing we are going to be in Heaven together one day and that others are also walking and living HOLY and obeying all that the Bible commands and not making excuses to fit their "self."
Then as you walk in you most of the time will see the Pastors and others greeting you or giving you a smile that says "Good to see you again." Try to make it to your seat without someone saying hello lol.......it has not happened to me yet. Most of the time I will be talking all the way to find a seat and its wonderful to see others that are excited about service also.
Eventually I get a seat and wait for service to begin. Then once I see whoever it is that is starting service that night come to the pulpit to begin, a rush of excitement floods over me once again. We stand and praise God most of the time first, and I let God know how wonderful it is to be in his Church and among his people and came expecting something great tonight!
Then we start the singing........I try and put all I have into the words and praising God with song. Then the choir may sing or whatever and then the preaching begins. As the preacher begins and brings his message to us, my soul begins to get "fed" so to speak with God's word and what he is touching my heart with that very moment. To hear the word of God preached with POWER and someone who is living it, is wonderful! To hear a preacher who does not cower to what others will think or will he offend anyone but preaching in season and out of season..........the word of God.
Then comes the altar call, where I pray with what God has been dealing with me during the service about. I praise him and thank him for all he has done in that service.
Then we dismiss and leave. On the way out I fellowship with others and a lot of times we stand outside or in the entryway enjoy the fellowship of one another. It is hard to leave sometimes because I love my brothers and sisters in Christ. On the drive home, I think to myself how wonderful to be part of God's Church. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I'm highly antipating Tuesday night's service.........it is going to be a wonderful time!
