“And day by day, attending the temple together... [they were] praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:46–47, ESV)
Prayer and worship are the lifeline of the church.
We teach and admonish our members to pray every day as a part of the regular rhythm of life. Jesus outlines the major tenets of prayer in the "Lord's Prayer":
"Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." (Matthew 6:9-13)
We include prayer as a foundational part of all ministry planning and practice. We also gather to pray corporately every Sunday morning before our worship service at 9:15 a.m. All are welcome. Check out the Events section to see other scheduled opportunities for corporate prayer.
Worship is our response to God's saving work in Jesus on the Cross (John 3:16-18). Our worship begins by living a life that is in keeping with the commands of Christ day to day (Romans 12:1-2). We also gather weekly on the Lord's Day to pray, sing praises, read Scripture, and hear the preaching of the Word of God (1 Corinthians 14:6; Ephesians 5:19-21). We encourage “family worship” for part of the Lord’s Day service where all ages worship together for the edification of the entire church body before we part for age-targeted teaching times.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God." (Colossians 3:16)
