Our primary Worship celebration is held on Sunday mornings at 11:00
Why worship? Is worship important?
The scriptures make it clear that we are “spiritual” beings with thecapacity to know God personally, and the ability to glorify God our Creator. As Adam and Eve walked in the garden with God before the introduction of sin, so the sacrifice of Jesus to bear our sins makes it possible for us to live in “fellowship” with God. Humans are created with both a need and the ability to worship God. A person cannot experience true peace and fulfillment while making no room for God, or crowding Him out of their life.
Worship simply means to “attribute worth.” Music is a wonderful God-given means to express our worship. “Sing to him, sing praise to him, tell of all his wonderful acts...sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day” (1 Chronicles 16:9, 23). We also worship through testimonies, prayer, reading of scripture and often in the sermon.
Of course a person can worship on his or her own, yet the scriptures command us to come together with fellow believers to worship. Like an ember pulled away from the fire will soon die out, a person will suffer spiritually when not in fellowship with the Body of Christ. When we worship as a group our presence and participation gives encouragement to others, as we receive encouragement from them. “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
An amazing thing happens as we worship God. By changing our focus from ourself to God, we can see our life in a new way. By focusing on God our spirit will be lifted, we grow in courage, we experience hope and peace as we come to truly see God as our Heavenly Father. “I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth” (Psalm 121:1).
Worship includes the proclamation of a message from God’s Word, with application to our lives today. God says this about the Bible: “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:12-13). The goal of the sermon is to help each person prepare for the return of Christ, when we will receive the reward God has in store for those who live for Him.
Join us this Sunday morning at 11 a.m. as we gather to worship our Heavenly Father, to thank Him for all His blessings, and to hear the proclamation of His Word!
