What to Expect

As a Christ-centered fellowship of believers, we trust that when you come to Westmount Bible Chapel you will feel welcomed. We have a diversity of people at Westmount Bible Chapel in all seasons of life. These are some things you might expect as you come to worship with us Sunday morning:

EXPOSITIONAL PREACHING. At Westmount Bible Chapel the Word of God is taught through expositional preaching. That means that on a regular Sunday morning, we will be engaged in a series where we are preaching through a particular book of the Bible. We go through the entire book of the Bible, verse by verse. Occasionally, during the summer and holidays, we mix in other short series or topics.

SONGS OF PRAISE. At Westmount Bible Chapel we sing songs of praise, worship, and adoration to our God both through traditional hymns and contemporary songs. On a typical Sunday morning worship service you will find a mix of these.

THE LORD’S TABLE. At Westmount Bible Chapel we take part in the Lord’s Table every week. We eat the bread and drink the cup through Scripture, prayer and personal examination.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY. At Westmount Bible Chapel we believe it is our responsibility and privilege to come alongside parents and help their children learn about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each Sunday morning in Chapel Kids (grades 1-6) we minister to the children using a three-year curriculum that teaches the narratives of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The children engage in a lesson including reading, activities, and crafts or games, that are age-appropriate and that point them to the gospel truths revealed in the Word of God. There is also a nursery (up to age 2) and preschooler room (age 3-6). The children stay with their parents during the first part of service, our songs of praise, and are dismissed to their classrooms before the message.

MONTHLY FELLOWSHIP LUNCH. At Westmount Bible Chapel we gather once a month at the conclusion of service for a chapel lunch. This is typically on the first Sunday of every month. This is a wonderful time of extended fellowship, as well as an outreach time to family, friends, and neighbours that normally wouldn’t attend church.

MID-WEEK GATHERING. At Westmount Bible Chapel we believe that the gathering of the saints should not be limited to just Sunday. Each Wednesday night we gather together in a more informal setting. We begin the evening with songs of praise, and a focused time of prayer. That is followed by a time of teaching and discussion, with topics ranging from themes arising from a Sunday’s pulpit message, through to a wide-range of contemporary issues. We end the evening in fellowship, encouraging one another in the Word and building relationships.

MEMBERSHIP. At Westmount Bible Chapel we believe it is important for Christians to identify with a local church through membership. Membership is important for a number of reasons. First, it demonstrates commitment to Christ’s Church. Also, it demonstrates commitment to the fellow saints, whereby the body of saints are built up and strengthened. Finally, it enables the elders of the church to recognize who is in their care and trust, as they give an account to the Lord for their oversight.
