I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!” (Psalm 122:1 ESV)
The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God in which He reveals Himself and His will to us and the means by which the Holy Spirit gives us faith. As such, the proclamation of the Word of God is central to our worship gatherings. God’s Word is proclaimed in sermons, lessons, prayers, confessions, hymns and songs. The Word is made visible to us in the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism. Whether we are preaching, teaching, singing, or just talking, we want to be people of the Word.
We have a simple yet reverent order of worship. On most Sundays, we begin by preparing our hearts and minds to receive God’s Word with praise songs led by a worship band composed of servants who share their musical gifts with us. After this upbeat and joyful singing of praise, we pray and confess our sins together and hear God’s assurance of forgiveness in His Word.
Now, Scripture lessons are proclaimed and we respond with singing of hymns, usually with piano accompaniment, a confession of faith, prayers, and an offering for the ministries of Good News. This is followed by a sermon, typically in an expositional style, focused on explaining the meaning of God’s Word. We close in prayer and with hymns.
On the first Sunday of every month, and occasionally on other Sundays as well, we serve the Lord’s Supper at the end of our worship service. We invite all baptized believers in Christ to receive His gifts in the Supper. On those Sundays, we give our worship band a break and all of our music, primarily hymns, is accompanied by piano.
You are invited to worship with us! Come as you are. All you need is an open heart to receive what God desires to give to you through His Word as we lift our voices in prayer, praise and thanksgiving to Him.
