10:45 a.m. Worship Service
Why We Meet Together
We meet together to worship the God who has redeemed us and to edify one another. We’ve been created by God to worship Him with our whole lives, and it brings Him particular glory when His people honor Him corporately. God works by His Word and Spirit through His people when we are together. We build one another up in our faith by exercising the gifts that He’s given us. Corporate worship is first and foremost a meeting between God and His people, but it’s also an opportunity for those who do not yet know Christ to come and say, “God is truly among you.”
When We Gather
As an independent, evangelical church, we have no formal service order that we have to follow. But within this freedom, we seek to make all the elements reflect God’s priorities. We aim to read the Bible, preach the Bible, pray from the Bible, sing songs that reflect the Bible’s truths, and celebrate the Lord’s Supper and baptism that dramatize the Bible.
What We Sing
Because we’re committed to being a multi-generational church, we sing songs from the past, present, and future. We sing great hymns of the faith from the past that help us pray, think, and celebrate with words that will last for a lifetime. We sing modern songs from the present that reflect what God is doing in the church today. Pointing to the future, we occasionally sing songs in other styles and languages, reminding ourselves of our future when we will worship God together with people from every tribe and tongue and nation.
Our worship ministry includes:
Worship Band & Vocalists
Incorporating a rhythm section, tight harmonies & solos, and skillful playing of violin and other instruments, this group leads us in contemporary songs each week. We rehearse on Sundays at 7:45 a.m.
This multi-generational group of worshipers leads us in congregational song and sings an anthem most weeks. We rehearse on Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. and Sundays at 8:45 a.m. We also prepare special programs each Christmas and Easter season. If interested in joining, please contact Katelynn Bernardini at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children who participate in Children’s Church occasionally sing special songs in our Sunday service.
Student Band & Ensemble
Comprised of students in our Impact (6–8th grade) and Common Ground (9–12th grade) ministries, this group leads singing for Student Ministries events. We rehearse on Wednesdays, August 17–December 7 from 5:15–6:00 p.m. in the Common Ground (E202) and Impact (E226) rooms. Open by audition to all students who wish to grow in their musical talent for worship leadership. If interested in joining, please contact Paige Poloni at email@example.com or 901-682-8452.
