Come study the Bible with us on Wednesday nights at 7PM. We are now studying the Works of the Flesh and the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:19-25). Each week, we will study a few of the words, identify examples of those words in Scripture, and identify examples in our world today. Please join us and bring your Bible.

    What do you call the area where you worship?
    Also where in the bible does it say you should have church on Wednesday night

      I hope you received my private response when you originally wrote, but for all who might be interested–
      We have no official name for the room where we assemble for public worship (just like there is no such official name in Scripture). Sometimes I call it an auditorium, like any room used for a gathering might be called. Consider that in Acts 20:7-8, Luke identifies the place where the disciples gathered on the first day of the week as “the upper room.” That’s not a spiritually-significant term—just a simple way to identify the place where they met. We do likewise.
      Today, there are no holy robes, holy priests (other than all saints 1 Pet. 2:5), holy vessels for holy water, etc. or sanctuaries. These things were all “shadows” in the Old Covenant that preceded Christ and His New Covenant. My words and explanation may not be completely clear. Read Hebrews 8:1-6 (and Hebrews 9:9-11), and the words of the Holy Spirit there will help you see the difference I am referring to.
      Regarding an assembly on Wednesday night, each congregation may decide how often throughout the week to meet. Sometimes, a church may assemble every day, like they did in Jerusalem (Acts 2:46). Where there is no choice, is that God’s people and churches must assemble on the Lord’s Day, the first day of the week (Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:2; Rev. 1:10).
      Good questions. Thank you for writing, and I hope you’ll write again.
