Sunday Morning—Each Sunday at 11am the congregation of Abingdon Baptist gathers for worship. The service is thematically structured around the scripture and message for the day. Congregational participation is a priority. A fourfold pattern of worship is generally followed: gathering, hearing the Word, responding to God, sending forth to serve. We draw from a variety of musical styles and genres to create an experience of authentic worship for our congregation. If our worship style must be labeled, the terms traditional with some blended elements would be appropriate. Choirs, the organ and piano play integral parts in the service. The sermon is Bible-based and expositional. There is also a children’s sermon with a Children’s Church for younger worshipers through 3rd grade. A nursery is also provided for children birth through pre-K.
