Question
Is it cammanded in the bible

Answer
No, there are no commands about any days other than the first day of the week. But, there is evidence that the church in Jerusalem met daily.

Acts 2:46-47
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

Each local congregation can decide how often and what days and times they want to meet and worship God and study together. There is no direct command for any specific time or day except that the Lord's Supper was shared every Sunday and that was the main day for worship. But we can choose to meet every day or just on Sunday mornings or we could choose to do it the way we do now. Sunday mornings, Sunday nights, and Wednesday nights. One positive if most churches meet these three days and about the same times...it's easier for traveling Christians to find a church where ever they go and attend when they are out of town.

I hope this answers your question.

Expertise

I can answer questions regarding acceptable worship, organization of the church, or any apsect of the Christian life. I am the son of a preacher and have studied the Bible from cover to cover since I was 12 years old. I am strong in my research skills and do not follow teachings of men. Many will label me as conservative and some might label me as liberal, but I just seek to be biblical. I understand proper exegesis and hermeneutics and apply them. My desire is to share my knowledge of God's Word with others. Please always keep in mind that none of us who are listed as experts here are divinely inspired and therefore it is possible to get incorrect answers from any one of us. Study the Scriptures and decide for yourself if what is taught is true.

Experience

I am the 4th generation in my family to be a faithful member of the church of Christ. I was raised by a preacher and have studied the Bible everyday since I was twelve. I am 45 yrs old now. I am not a "scholar", but I am very familiar with the scriptures.

Organizations
member of the church of Christ, served as a Deacon for a few years at LakeShore church of Christ in Waco, Tx. I currently live in the North Dallas area and am still very active within the church of Christ teaching, leading Bible Studies, and songleading as well. I am also actively involved in online ministry. I hope to open my own webpage eventually.
