There are so few places in Scripture to give us explicit instructions about Christian worships services. In contrast to all the detailed instructions given for worship in the Old Testament, we don’t have a liturgical manual anywhere in the New Testament. Worship cannot be boiled down to a phrase, three alliterative words or one five-step method. Worship is like a diamond. No one viewpoint gives us a complete picture of what it’s all about.
Worship is so rich and deep because it is not an end in itself. We don’t gather for the sake of the event itself. We gather because this event expresses and deepens something more important, the relationship we have with God in Christ. Just as a wedding exists for the sake of the marriage that is being established, so too a worship service exists in order to express, deepen, and enrich the relationship that God has with us in Christ.
Join us on Sundays at 11am outside in the Wanner Picnic Shelter for our sermon series.
