The Gathering Experience

 

The Sunday morning experience is vital to our church. It is a time when people of all ages, all backgrounds and all ministry areas come together to worship and grow spiritually.

Each service is unique, but there are elements to our services that are helpful to know about.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

A Sunday morning service includes several things:

• Worship through music
Through instruments and singing, we honor God through various styles of music—contemporary, gospel, traditional, latin, and others. God is the Creator of music, and we choose to use it in ways that will glorify Him.

• Worship through listening
We believe God desires to speak to our hearts every time we gather. A pastor or special guest will preach a message (sermon), which is based on Scriptures, and we endeavor to hear with open ears and hearts.

• Worship through responding
We worship God by responding to His Word and His presence. It is important to not only hear a message, but also to respond to it. We must be open to let God change our hearts and spend time in prayer during each service.

• Worship through creative arts
We believe there are many ways to celebrate and worship God. We occasionally use creative arts ministries such as: special songs from the choir; various visual presentations; and dance or drama presentations.

• Worship through giving
All that we have been given comes from God. He deserves our very best. We believe it’s important to give God 10% of our earnings, which is called a tithe. We also honor Him by giving in offerings, where each person can give financially whatever they would like to give, above a tithe, to touch the world around us.
