Why We Worship
As believers, we can’t help but worship our Savior. The celebration of God’s glory is an incredible privilege we’ve been undeservedly given. We gather to bring praise and honor to his name, and the gospel is the heart of why we worship. God saw us in sinful rebellion against Him, and yet sent His son to die for us and take the penalty for each of our sins, so that we could be made right with Him. It is because he did this and rose victoriously from the grave, that we celebrate our relationship with Him. This truth is the foundation for what we do and why we worship. We celebrate Christ’s sacrifice both corporately and individually, and seek to worship Him not only through music, but through every aspect of our lives. As believers, worship is more than a tradition; it’s the foundation for all we do.
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

We gather as a congregation on Sundays at 10:45 in the main worship center.
Our choir gathers to lead the congregation in praising our Savior through song, with a heart centered on glorifying the Lord. Psalm 95:1-2 says, “Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!”
We are all called to praise the Lord joyfully with our voices, and the worship choir provides a tremendous opportunity to do this, as well as to lead others to join this celebration.
Choir meets weekly to rehearse and worship the Lord through music and studying the Word. This is a great opportunity not only to make music, but to engage in a fun time of fellowship with like-minded believers.
The worship team is a group of auditioned vocalists who lead the congregation in worship on a rotational basis. This group is responsible for additional rehearsals at church, as well as individual practice outside of church. These singers also play an important role in leading these times of worship with a life and heart surrendered to the Lord.
The purpose of Shine is to teach children God’s word, who they are in Christ, and how to worship Him through music and their lives as a whole. Students will dig into the Word and learn about their call to worship through interactive lessons, singing, instruments, movement, art, and games.
Shine is based on Matthew 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
As a child of God, we are called to reflect the light of our Savior through all we do. The focus is reflecting The Light, not trying to shine our own light. Students will learn about this in depth and how it can be lived out through musical worship and all aspects of their lives.
