Our guests occasionally comment that they notice something “different” when they visit our worship services.
What are the little “caps” on the ladies’ heads?
These “caps” are called “prayer veilings” or “prayer coverings.”
Our sisters wear them to worship and we teach them based on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, where the Apostle Paul teaches that Christian women should wear a distinctive covering which symbolizes the creation order and the proper roles of men and women in the church. Until around 1900, most Christian churches observed this practice. Since then, the practice has been maintained primarily by various Anabaptist groups and some Catholic churches.
Our church makes them available to the sisters, and extras are found in a plexiglass box in the foyer.
Why do the sisters wear dresses or skirts?
We seek to apply the Scriptural principles regarding the distinctions between the sexes, as well as Biblical modesty. This is why the church strongly encourages women and girls to wear modest dresses or skirts to all church services. Our church has also taught separation from, and non-conformity to, the world. There ought to be a difference which marks Christian women in worship.
We trust that our particular applications of Biblical principles will encourage you to examine the Scriptures in these matters; however, you are our guest, and we do indeed welcome you to our worship service.
