What we believe about worship:
Worship is an opportunity to come together as a community of faith, to celebrate God’s presence, grace, and work among us, and to connect with God through acts of praise, prayer, and thanksgiving.
1 Chronicles 16:23-27, 31 (NRSV)
Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; he is to be revered above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the Lord made the heavens. Honor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord is king!”
