Worship

Proclaiming God’s Word through Scripture, Preaching, Music, and Sacrament

fotolia worship webWorship is the center of congregational life. The pastoral leadership ensures a genuine worship experience that is God-exalting, Spirit-filled, vital, inspiring, meaningful and nourishing.

Excellence is sought in every aspect of worship practices. The corporate worship service fuels ministry, spiritual growth and commitment.

The worship program fits the nature of the congregation and its schedules, may include active lay leadership, and satisfies members’ needs. Worship includes a well-chosen liturgy, appropriate music, congregational singing, and persuasive, expositional, biblically-based preaching applicable to members’ lives.

Generational preferences are understood and incorporated. Diverse approaches to worship may be used to include new forms, words and music for expressing faith. Worshippers feel included, valued, nourished, taught, prayed for, and uplifted; and, there is an atmosphere that exudes warmth. Member participation is stable or increasing.
