Sunday Morning Worship Services
Through our corporate worship ministries we seek to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24). We believe the Scriptures teach that the key elements of corporate worship are prayer (1 Timothy 2:1-2), Scripture (1 Timothy 4:13), singing of praise (Ephesians 5:19), giving (1 Corinthians 16:2), the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:17-34), and baptism (Matthew 23:19). These elements characterize our Sunday morning worship services. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated the 1st Sunday of each month with baptisms occurring at various times throughout the year. We believe corporate worship that honors God maintains the preaching of the Word of God as its central feature (1 Timothy 4:13-16; 2 Timothy 4:1-4).
Musically our worship aims for an expression of corporate worship that is conservatively contemporary. We will avoid the idolatry of venerating either antiquity (2 Kings 18:4) or novelty (Acts 17:21). We will not deify the past and demonize the present, nor will we canonize the new and cast aside our heritage. We blend the rich heritage of hymns with today’s new contemporary Christian songs. We are committed to worship as one body (Romans 12:4-5), even if in multiple services. To this end, our services do not differ in styles of music. We aim not for the comfort of the individual, but for the glory of God joyfully expressed by the whole of His fellowship. We believe that corporate worship provides one of our most obvious opportunities to “look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4) and, that as we do so, it becomes perhaps our greatest expression of worship to God.
This group of committed musicians passionately leads us in worship each Sunday. The team meets for rehearsal and prayer each week.
