A Description of Public Worship
I thought it might be helpful to share a paragraph that I wrote on the purpose of public worship that’s included on the front of our Sunday bulletin each week:
You have come to our fellowship of worship, otherwise known as the public worship service. This is a special time of the week in which we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ who rose from the dead on a Sunday morning. We celebrate by worshipping the God of the Bible together; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Worship involves more than just being present at today’s service; it is the inner attitude of our hearts as we seek, with the Spirit’s help, to turn our attention to God’s character and works and respond appropriately with our whole beings: our minds, bodies, and hearts. Though worship is a blessing to us, our primary task this morning is to give God the praise and glory that He deserves. God is present when His people gather and His Word is proclaimed and we pray that you will sense His presence with us today.
