August Service Schedule

CMS - 1.6.6 - Bonde
 

Saturday

Bible study and Hymns lessons starts at 6:30 till 7:30.

The servants take the kids and anyone that likes to learn our beloved Coptic Church hymns and go to the Blue Room for an inspiring hymns lesson and memorization. This helps our kids to learn their church hymns and participate at the church prayers and services.

Did you know that the Holy Liturgy actually starts on Saturday evening. On every Saturday Fr. Youhanna, church congregation and the church deacons gather together at the church to offer the Evening Incense starts at 7:30 PM till 8 PM.

We learn from incense is the Lord’s teaching : “ he who loses his life for My sake will find it” (Matt.10:39).An example of this is the particle of incense , which burns and burns until it becomes perfumed pillars of smoke. You look for it in the censer as a particle of incense, but you do not find it because it offered itself as a burnt offering to God.

Its constant ascent. The burning incense does not accept to be kept down, but it rises to the sky, stretches and spreads and never ceases to ascend and spread. When you watch and follow it you cannot help raising your eyes to the sky. That is why incense always attracts people’s senses to above.

It resembles the sweet aroma. The Holy Bible conditions incense to be sweet incense. Whoever smells the incense remembers that man’s life should be a fragrant perfume before God. The Holy Bible says : “For we are to God the fragrance of Christ..through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place “ (2 Cor.2 :14,15).

 

Holy Psalmody Hymns starts at 8 PM till 9:30 PM

After the offering of the Evening Incense the deacon, the congregation and Fr. Youhanna all start singing the heavenly hymns of the Holy Psalmody (El Tasbeha).
