What to Expect in a Shabbat Service
Our Shabbat morning service combines some of the traditional liturgy and Torah service of the synagogue with a song/worship service and a message. We begin service at 10:30am with a few minutes of liturgy and praise. Then we have a short maftir teaching on the Torah portion from one of our members, a longer worship time, and a message from Mark. We end our service around 12:30pm.
After that, we break bread together and enjoy a meal. Everyone brings their own lunch, and we enjoy this short time of fellowship together.
Around 1:00pm, we begin our Torah study. We take turns reading sections of the Torah portion and discuss what it means and how it applies to our lives today.
Here at Kehilat Yeshua, we enjoy the unrushed spirit of Shabbat. We come together on Saturday with no agenda except to rest in the presence of the Lord, learn more about Him, and enjoy fellowship with each other. That said, we understand that everyone is at a different place in life, and sometimes lingering on Shabbat isn’t an option. You are welcome to stay as long as you’d like – whether that means leaving before lunch, after lunch, or staying all the way until the end of the Torah study.
