CORPORATE WORSHIP


Since the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave on the first day of the week almost 2000 years ago, Christians have gathered on that day to worship God together. We call this corporate worship. The word corporate comes from a Latin word that means "unified in one body". On Sundays, our church family gathers together as a local expression of the unified body of Christ.


We believe that everything that the church does when gathered should be governed by scripture and centered around scripture because this is how God has revealed Himself to us. We are a people under the Lordship of Christ and we believe Christ rules over His church through His Word. When we gather as a church on Sunday, we like to read scripture, sing scripture, preach scripture, and pray scripture. 


We try not to get bogged down in allowing culture to dictate how we worship God in His church. We look only to God's Word to regulate our worship. We don't do anything that hasn't been done before. We don't seek to be innovative or flashy. 


We typically sing a song or two, often hymns but not always. Our desire in singing is to properly exalt the triune God in all of His attributes according to how He has revealed Himself in scripture. In other words, lyrics are more important than style.


We also hold with honor the duty of preaching God's Word to God's people. Therefore, our preaching time tends to be long and expositional. We believe the healthiest way to feed God's people is straight through books of the Bible, "precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line" (Isaiah 28:10). No verse or topic is left untouched and the church is taught the full counsel of God. 


Our corporate worship services are every Sunday morning at 11am. If you're not currently a part of a Bible-teaching, Christ-exalting church, then we would love to have you worship with us this Sunday.



fellowship meal




After each service on the Lord's Day, we all stay and have lunch together. This is a great opportunity to get to know our church family and ask questions about the sermon. Each family participates in a pre-planned meal and there's usually enough for visitors who want to stick around and enjoy fellowship with our church.
