Why We Worship the Way We Do
welcome TO OUR LORD'S DAY WORSHIP
We have a fairly structured worship service. If you have never with us before you might wonder why we worship the way we do. If youare not used to worshipping our way you might feel somewhat awkward or uncomfortable' We know how you feel because we had to get used to it ourselves. We hope the brief comments that fore fullyllow address a few of your questions and enable you more fully to to appreciate our form of worship.
Our motive for Worship
The Church is God's assembly called out of the world to be a people different in government, culture, and worship. The Scriptures exhort us to meet together for the purpose of worship. Often the primary questions people have are: "SAm I having a good time"; "Are we moved by the sermon"? "are we having good fellowship"?
While some of these questions touch legitimate concerns they they are not sound Biblical purrposese for gathering to worship. Worship is primarily for God not us. As we worship, we we may have a pleasant or "significant" experience or we may not, but the primary question is always. Did I worship God acceptably ane please Him?"We are a "Liturgical Church"
What is "Liturgy"?
Nearly all Churches have some form of liturgy. LITURGY IS WHEN YOU CAN PREDICT WHAT IS GOIND TO HAPPEN NEXT IN THEMEETING. Liturgy means "work of the people". Our corporaste gathering each LORD'S Day is to do the work of worship.We worship because He is Worthy not not because we get a thrill from it. Mental, emotional and physical effort are sometimes required. especially if we are not "in the mood", We also work together . Each person elevates or undermines the Church body's worship experience. As each worshipper throws his entire being into worship his his life contributes a harmonious tone, rythm, or song as we endeavour to create a beautiful, clear, heavenly symphony of worship to God. Instruments (heart and minds) out of tune and mediocre , half-hearted performances ruin the beauty of 'MUSIC' and seriously detract from the unity and spleandor of our corporate offering to the LORD of Hossts.
