  • Depictions of early Christians worshipping
  • People worshipping during Divine Liturgy today
  • Receiving Holy Communion
  • People praying in church
  • Fellowship in the church
  • The idea that the Church is comprised of people; the Church is not just a building
  • Learning about things Jesus taught the Apostles by listening to the Epistle and Gospel readings
  • Helping one another like the early Christians did by donating food or clothing, serving at a homeless shelter, etc.
  • Living our lives according to Jesus’ teachings
  • Comparing how our traditions and worship reflect those of the ancient church
  • Handing down traditions of the Church from one generation to the next
  • Ways we can preserve our Orthodox faith
