Sunday Corporate Worship
Time & Location
During corporate worship, we:
- Sing songs together as an act of mutual teaching & admonition…
- Pray to the Lord in total dependence on Him…
- Read the Scriptures publicly and meditate on them together…
- Listen to expositional preaching to learn of who God is and what He has done and how we should then live….
Our goal in corporate worship is to glorify God together by worshiping Him for his greatness & goodness, confessing our sinfulness on Him and need for a Savior, celebrating Jesus’ gospel work, and growing to be more like Him through the preaching of the Scriptures. Our service is intentionally planned to be centered around Christ and the gospel, because He is the One who brings us to God through the gospel and He is the one who makes our service of worship pleasing to God. Our corporate worship gatherings follow a flow of 4 movements which tell the gospel narrative each week: God, Man, Christ, Response – each week, we consider God’s holiness, our sinfulness, Christ’s saving grace, and how we respond to Him.

On the first Sunday of each month, we remember & celebrate the life, death, & resurrection of Jesus by observing Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, together. Communion serves as a remembrance of what Jesus accomplished for us in the gospel, and it moves us to worship Him and live holy lives for His glory.

We love gathering together as a whole church body, but we also recognize the value & need of a smaller setting to develop personal, intimate relationships, to encourage & allow for personal discipleship, and to team together to reach out to our communities with the gospel.
We meet in our Fellowship Groups for this purpose. Fellowship Groups allow members of the body of Christ to grow in their relationships with one another, provide a context for more intimate study of the Scriptures, and enable us to engage in ministry together as we seek to share the gospel in our community. Sometimes Fellowship Groups spend the bulk of their time discussing the Scriptures and praying together, but we want to be intentional to seek to be on mission together, reaching out to our neighborhoods and communities. We urge everyone in our church to be active in their Fellowship Group because we believe they are an important part of how we care for one another, build each other up in Christ, and reach out to our city with the gospel.
