Sermon Topic: worship
Worship is the centerpiece of Christian community, yet we often put this part of our lives on auto-pilot. We come to a building every week, do the things prescribed by those leading us, then go home without thinking much at all about the fact that we've just engaged in a transcendent experience. But what is it, exactly, that we do on Sunday mornings, and is that "worship"? What makes it worship? What does it mean to stand in awe as a witness to the work of a magnificent God? This Sunday, we will begin there, with transcendence. We will explore together what God has created us to do, if indeed we are designed to glorify God and enjoy him forever. I can't wait to experiment and experience together the art of worship. ~ Carolyn
Join us for a special message designed to help us as a family catch a vision for online worship in 2022. We are excited for the chance to speak directly to our online family! We'll also talk more about our word for the season ahead: sweet communion.
This week, we dive into Isaiah's messianic prophecies and discover that Jesus is perfectly pictured there -- full of hope, peace, and security. How does this vision of the Messiah call us to live? How does it call us to worship? Are you hungry for more of what God seems so willing to do among us? Then check out this message.
The book of Isaiah is often called "The Fifth Gospel." Long before Jesus walked the earth, Isaiah envisioned His presence among us with deep longing. In the language of prophetic poetry, he paints a vivid picture of the coming Messiah, then teaches us how to worship Him so that He is honored and His Kingdom is advanced. This week, we'll begin our summer journey through Isaiah with a special focus on what he teaches us about worship. It's a great time to reboot, rethink, and be spiritually rejuvenated.
