We’re followers of Jesus who simply desire to be actively engaged in worshiping God – period. That’s not automatic. It can take us time to quiet our inner thoughts, set aside distractions, and to focus our hearts and minds on God. We gather to lay down our burdens, remember who we are as God’s children, and to simply enter into God’s presence. We do this not only for ourselves, but also for each other.
We believe that we actively engage in worshiping God not only when we are in God’s presence, but also when we are in the presence of one another. At times we do it well, and at others, oh so poorly. Yet it is in our relationships with one another that we learn what it means to love, and what it means to be one who is loved. Here is where we experience the meaning of words like forgiveness, mercy, grace, compassion, generosity, kindness, gentleness; qualities that we learn from God.
We find that the very act of engaging in worship brings us into the place of prayer, where we sing not only the lyrics of the songs as prayers and praises to God, but also open our hearts to converse with God for ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world. The message and time of communion following also fosters this life of prayer, as we come to the Lord and seek the prayers of others as the culmination of the service.
We believe that healing comes in the intersection of being with God and one another as we gather together in worship. Sometimes it’s in the words of a song, a truth in the message, or a hug from a friend that simply touch a wound in our hearts. Healing can also come over time, as we engage with God and one another with honestly and humility about our lives.
If you are a visitor, please come and join us. Our services are two hours, from 10am-noon, beginning with worship and praise, and generally ending with a time of communion. They’re casual, and fairly free-form, but generally involve an extended time of singing, a message, communion, and an opportunity to receive prayer.
We hope you will feel at home among us.
