Thesaurus is just a reference that comes pre-installed in Microsoft Word, it is offline mode.  It lists the synonyms (words with the same meaning) and antonyms (opposite meaning) of a word.

What is it Like to Attend the Worship Service in Iglesia ni Cristo?

As God requires, do everything in an orderly manner.  And here is how the Church follows that commandment:

1. The Church Officers -  be it deacons, deaconess, choir member, finance officers, the secretariat, SCAN members have each own set of uniforms for the Worship Service (WS). 

2. The church goers are seated separately based on gender – males are seated on the left column and women on the right column. 

3. There is an office where to get your proof of attendance (if you are registered from other Locale and just nearby to attend) or give your Transfer Certificate ( if you opt to move-in permanently to the place).  

4. Choir members have identical clear books where the set of hymns are written, they stand to sing simultaneously and take their seats in the same manner.
