Worship

 

Everyone worships something.  We choose to make God the primary object of our worship.  After all, God made us.  He is above all.  He loves us and redeems us.  He is worthy in every way of our whole-hearted worship!

Moreover, when asked what was the greatest of all the 613 commandments in the Old Testament Law, Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”  (Matthew 22:37)  And that’s what we seek to do – to love, honor, worship, and bring glory to God. 

We believe that loving God is an outward activity and an inward activity, a communal event  and a solo practice.  We love God and we are to love God not just on Sunday mornings but throughout the 168 hours of each week.  God is always with us.  We seek to honor Him continually.

We gather in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings to worship God together as a church family, to publicly express our joy in God our Savior and to encourage and be encouraged by other followers of Jesus as we worship God in song, prayer, studying God’s Word, through hearing stories of God’s power and through experiencing God’s presence, power, and promises in the sacraments of baptism and Communion.

All people are welcome to join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30am and in Spanish at 12:30pm and Portuguese at 6:30pm.  (Worship services on holidays are at different times.)  Join us for worship just as you are to meet with God and to enjoy being with others seeking Him!
