Worship Family Orientation and Rehearsal

Worship Choir and Orchestra is now called Worship Family and we're getting back together. Join us Wednesday, August 11 at 6 in the Music Suite for orientation and weekly rehearsal.

What is Worship?

What does it mean to praise and worship Almighty God, the God of the Bible?
To worship God is to express our love and awe of who He is. In Isaiah 66:1 God says “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.”  He is the Creator of the universe and everything in it, which includes me and you. God sees us as significant. How wonderful and amazing is that?

The foundation of our praise is rooted in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Out of that relationship God desires us to live all of our moments as a worshipper. True worship requires total commitment of our body, mind and spirit. It’s about exalting, adoring and acknowledging the God of the Bible. It has nothing to do with religion, but it has everything to do with having an intimate and profound relationship with God - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Why Worship?

When it comes to preparing for gathered worship, the key is to understand you and I are on a journey. We want to be on a progression of some kind during any particular worship gathering.  God promises to be with us when two or three gather in His name. God is wanting to bring you and me to a place of encounter with Him. This is not necessarily why we worship but rather what occurs when we worship in genuine spirit and truth.

The section of the journey we find ourselves on during a particular worship gathering is part of a bigger pilgrimage we're on during our weeks, months and years as a church family.  Keep this in mind and enjoy the journey. Think journey!

How to Worship?

The best worship occurs from the inside-out. Worship is born from the revelation of God as found in His word, our times of prayer, and personal experiences where we encounter the presence of God. Too often a person can simply look good on the outside while the true test is this: when we take the deep look inside, is there something of substance from within?
