Following the formation of the first church in Jerusalem, we read that the believers met daily for worship. But later that practice changed to meeting only on one day of the week. Christians have traditionally met on the day the Lord rose from the dead, that is, on the first day of the week – Sunday. The practice of meeting on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) continued and is still in vogue today.
Although back then, there weren’t as many denominations as we have now, this practice has continued down through the centuries and most of the different churches still continue meeting on Sundays. However, there are some groups, following different compulsions, that meet on Saturdays, like the Seventh-Day Adventists, Church of God, and United Church of God. No matter which day of the week people meet, the purpose remains that the worship of God is primary and the fellowship with like-minded believers is paramount to the continuance of their communities.
Generally, the meeting of Christians is characterized by singing hymns, giving tithes and offerings and, more importantly, teaching from the Word; also the breaking of bread, or Communion as most people refer to it, is also observed in the service. A Sunday service is normally a time for believers to gather for worship and fellowship as well; a time to come apart and focus on God and His Word and gain instruction for living according to His will.
