Be the Church - upcoming worship
The worship and praise of God is central to our life together as community and for our personal spiritual enrichment. We worship using all our senses. Some of us experience God as we listen to the Word being read or proclaimed. Some of us experience God through the mystical moment of prayer. Some of experience God when we sing aloud the hymns and songs of our faith. Some of us experience God through any form of music. Some of us experience God visually through the beautiful display of our Flower Ministry. Some of us experience God when we offer the “peace of God” to each other. Some of experience God in all of the above!
I invite you to join for worship every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. And, as you know, thanks to the wonderful creative spirit of our Minister of Music, Glenn Starner-Tate, our worship always includes spiritually-rich and uplifting music. Here are some of the upcoming special worship services:
