Even though we have had several opportunities to worship in person outside, I know many of you have been longing for a chance to worship God together in person and in our worship center and I'm excited to announce that time has finally arrived! Our worship services will now be held indoors and in our church worship center beginning this Sunday, October 4 at 9:30am. Below are some things you need to know as we come back together.
Don't forget to RSVP if you are wanting to be a part of our indoor gathering this Sunday, October 4th at 9:30am.
For God's glory!
Oftentimes, we struggle to form a cohesive understanding of the purpose of the church. Do we place our efforts and resources towards fulfilling The Great Commission solely? Do we send every member on an overseas mission trip? Do we knock on doors of our neighborhood to proclaim salvation through Christ? The following is an excerpt from John Piper’s book, “Let the Nations be Glad!”:
“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exist because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever. Worship, therefore, is the fuel and goal of missions. It’s the goal of missions because in missions we simply aim to bring the nations into the white hot enjoyment of God’s glory. The goal of missions is the gladness of the peoples in the greatness of God.”
When we get worship right, missions, evangelism, discipleship, ministry, family, etc. come into right perspective. Take time today to offer a moment of private worship adoring Him because He is worthy of our worship.
