Worship

Worship

-a sum of many parts

HOSPITALITY

We believe that hospitality is an art designed to foster comfort and ease of belonging. The first thing that both visitors and church members encounter on any Sunday morning is a kind welcome with coffee and snacks in abundance. There is an authentic and casual atmosphere because that is simply who we are. Feel free to come early and linger afterwards for delightful conversation.

MUSIC

The songs that are played on Sunday mornings are designed to unify the church through the beauty of music and to reinforce biblical truth.  We don’t stick to one style of music, but recognize the benefit of diversity.  Our desire is to meet God in the space created by authentic song lifted in praise and adoration of the only One who is worthy.  If the music is authentic and beautiful, we believe that it prepares hearts to receive.

PRAYER

Peace and Presence are the bread that we receive by praying together each Sunday morning.  Through prayer, we petition God for the needs of the church, of the community, of the nation, and of the world.  Prayer ushers in a spirit of worship as we recognize God’s sovereignty over every one of our concerns.

MESSAGE

At the center of Sunday morning is the message.  This is a time of learning for all of us as the speaker shares a biblical truth that he or she has recently experienced and we listen and consider the ramifications in our lives.  We worship through learning by being present with a mind open to exploring both new and familiar biblical concepts.  We recognize the wisdom of others and seek to share our experience with God.

FELLOWSHIP

An often overlooked aspect of worship is being in relationship with other Christians.  The process of getting to know one another, sharing in the journey to become more like Christ, and speaking love and truth to each other is of utmost importance.  It is also glorifying to God.  We participate in fellowship on Sunday morning and throughout the week by engaging the message with corporate reflection.  In this type of fellowship, we are sharpened by challenging one another to deepen our understanding of Truth.

SERVICE

We are a small but active church. Many of our members participate in worship by serving to meet the logistic needs of the church. This includes running sound or media, setting-up, and tearing-down. These acts of service are treasured by church members because they help us to discover the servant-heart of Christ. We are able to worship through service because of our deepening understanding of the caring nature of God.

11:00am on Sundays

Characterized by upbeat, contemporary sacred and “secular” music, we worship God through prayer, communion, and sermons about living real life every day. Grab a cup of coffee (or juice) in the lobby and bring it in with you as we experience together the presence of Jesus in every gathering.
