Worship Guide

Welcome

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

Psalm 95:6-7

Worship is not something we observe. It’s something we bring our whole selves to, so we have worship guides for each service that we hope can help you engage in worship. We invite you to join in with every moment of worship: sing, listen, respond and pray as we gather together.

This worship guide is updated by Friday of each week in preparation for Sunday’s worship times. You can also download this quarter’s children’s bulletins here.
