Services are the most important activity of SRK and the local rauhanyhdistys organizations. People of all ages gather at services to listen to God’s word, which is freely available for all people to believe. The services consist of hymns, songs of Zion, prayers and sermons. The speaker begins his sermon by reading a text from the Bible and then goes on to explain it.
Local service schedules are published in Päivämies and various local, provincial and congregational papers. Places and dates of services are also available on the SRK and local rauhanyhdistys websites.
Services are open events, and all people are welcome to attend.
