We come from a long line of people who sing to and about God. From Moses and King David to Charles Wesley, Johnny Cash and Switchfoot.
Other than a sports game or occasional birthday party, people don’t usually stand around and sing. It’s odd. But we do every Sunday at church. Why? For starters it is a part of our history and tradition. We come from a long line of people who sing to and about God. From Moses and King David to Charles Wesley, Johnny Cash and Switchfoot, men and women have often expressed their faith, whether in painful cries or through gushing praise, with singing.
Whatever the reasons may be, one thing is sure, the power of music is undeniable. It seems to tap into deeper and more honest places than words alone ever could. It has been said that music is the language of the soul and we believe it. So when we meet together as a community of faith, it seems only natural that we would use this language of the soul to connect with God and each other.
Sometimes the songs are directed upward in celebration of the infinite love and greatness of God. On those days we sing joyfully to thank and praise Him for who He is and what He does and also to remind each other that we serve the King of all Kings.
Other times the songs are more personal and reflective, giving us an opportunity to connect intimately with our Creator. This can involve everything from confessing sin, to inviting God to heal us or asking Him for wisdom and direction, any expression that naturally flows out of our experience.
We want our worship to be sincere, grounded in real life and reaching outward to the eternal.
Does music = worship? No. We can sing without worshiping God, and we can worship God without singing. Ultimately, worship is an activity of the heart. Words, songs and actions are simply expressions of that worship.
Our worship style is relevant and modern. Most of our worship music comes from Hillsong, Vineyard, or even modern Christian artists such as Newsboys, David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin and others.
Our worship team features a live band with singers, keyboards, guitars, bass and drums. Our praise songs our celebratory and upbeat, while our worship songs are slower with more time to really sense what the song means and why you would sing the song to God.
Worship is a time to glorify God and reflect on what God has done in the past, present, and what he will do in the future stages of your life and others.
