Worship

Service times may be different on special events or holidays. If you would like to check the exact service times for a specific event or date, please check out our calendar.

As believers, Christ is the center of everything we do. This is especially true when believers gather together for worship. Without Christ, we would have no reason to gather for worship. We would be separated from God and each other. We would shrink in shame in the presence of God. But Jesus, our Savior, has restored our relationship with God through His perfect life and death. This fact brings us two-fold joy. We come together in worship to receive His saving and empowering Gospel. We also open our arms to offer Christ our thanks, our lives, our everything.

This cycle of receiving from God and giving to God characterizes each of our lives. It also characterizes the way we worship when we gather together. To accomplish this, we use a form of worship that traces its roots to the apostles themselves. It’s called liturgical worship.

Christ is at the center of liturgical worship. Some parts of the liturgy stay the same each Sunday. This is to make sure that Christ is proclaimed and praised during every service. Some parts of the liturgy change every week. These changes are based on the appointed calendar of the Church. This calendar makes sure that we cover the important events and teachings of Christ every year.
