Worship centers around God's gifts to us. In Jesus He gives us forgiveness, the Holy Spirit and faith. These come to us through God's Word, Baptism and Holy Communion. It is God's service to us. Worship also includes an opportunity for us to respond to God in our songs and prayers. God speaks. We respond. We gather together anticipating God blessing us and longing to reach out to God with hearts full of thanksgiving and praise because of what He has done for us.
We sense that different people respond in different ways to the sharing of God's gifts and so we offer two different worship styles.
- Liturgical Worship (following a prescribed order) offers refuge and stability as it leads through a predictable weekly path with emphasis on singing traditional hymns and relying on printed responses between pastors and people. Saturday, 6:00 PM; Sunday, 8:00 and 10:45 AM in the Sanctuary.
- Contemporary Worship stirs the soul using modern sounds and rhythms in music. Instead of formal responses between pastors and people, the pastors lead the worship with a narrative of God's great gifts in Jesus. Sunday, 10:25 AM in the Dwelling Place.
