What To Expect
Shalom! When you come to Temple Beth Yachad - A Messianic Community, it is our hope and prayer that you encounter the Lord in an authentically Jewish worship experience. In all things, we unapologetically make Yeshua the Messiah central to all we do! Our time in worship not only includes beautiful and contemporary worship music that exalts the LORD, but also consists of an embrace of the richness of our Jewish liturgical heritage as an important part of our worship experience.
Whatever your preferred expression of worship is, in our service we want you to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, whether that be through exuberant verbal expression of your love for Him, quiet and contemplative time in His Presence at your seat or at the altar, or Davidic Dance and the waving of flags and banners in the back of the sanctuary.
We serve the Living God of Israel! He has not abandoned us nor left us to fend for ourselves, but He has, in fact, sent us His Ruach (Spirit) (John 14:26; 1 Corinthians 12:1-12), who empowers us and impacts our lives! We believe that the sovereign God is active and working today, and that HE STILL SPEAKS TO HIS PEOPLE! Through the power of His Spirit, He transforms lives, heals broken bodies, restores broken marriages and shattered families, renews wounded souls, and provides for our needs in miraculous ways! At Temple Beth Yachad, the altars are open during our time in worship and our ministry leaders are ready to pray with you for whatever need you might have! We believe that Nothing is Too Hard for Adonai!
Messianic Jewish Cultural Expression
Every believing community has a unique cultural expression - even if they do not realize it. While our temple is wonderfully multi-cultural - a Beth Yachad (House of Unity), with a representation from seemingly every tribe, tongue, and nation, our Shabbat services intentionally and joyfully have a number of beautiful Jewish cultural expressions of worship which help shape the structure of our service. We sing liturgical pieces which most Jewish seekers would quickly recognize - like Ma Tovu, V’Shamru, Barchu, the Shema, the V’Ahavta, Mi ChaMocha, and the Aaronic Benediction. Each week we also have an abbreviated traditional Torah service in which we march the Torah scroll among the congregation with a parade of children marching behind it, as those in attendance reverently and gratefully express their affection for the Light of God’s Word. The climax of the Torah service is the reading from the weekly Torah, Haftarah and Brit Chadashah (New Covenant) portions.
Central to our services is the Ruach-empowered preaching of God’s Word, Genesis to Revelation. Each week, you will be challenged, encouraged, and strengthened in your faith as Rabbi Cosmo passionately teaches and preaches a relevant and Biblically-solid message from the Word of God!
As believers, we must not only understand the richness and depths of God’s Word, but must apply it to our lives. At the end of what is considered to be Yeshua’s greatest sermon (often called “The Sermon on the Mount), Yeshua stressed the point of applying His teachings to our living reality, saying, “Everyone who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on bedrock. The rain fell, the rivers flooded, the winds blew and beat against that house, but it didn't collapse, because its foundation was on rock.”
In Deuteronomy 6:6-7, we are instructed concerning the centrality of teaching God’s Word to the next generation.
Children of all ages will also be blessed by our Jr. Shabbat Service. Each week, they will learn the stories of the Scriptures with relevant life application from a perspective that embraces and encourages their Jewish cultural identity!
Oneg Shabbat: Panim al Panim (Face to Face)
Every Shabbat after Service
Every Shabbat after service, we gather together as a family, as mishpochah, around the table to delight (“Oneg” means “delight") in the Shabbat - to enjoy a meal together and to build genuine community, face-to-face. Ours is an open family - an open door, welcoming all who would come and join us at the table. This wonderful time together is warm and intimate while also being joyous and uplifting!
Coming together, sharing life, sharing a meal, praying with another, and growing together in community is an important part of the mission the Lord has called us to do and to be. There is absolutely no charge for the meal. See our Oneg “Etiquette and Protocols” here.
