WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT WORSHIP
We believe that the world and everything in it was created by our merciful and holy God. Every good gift comes from Him. God’s greatest gift was the sacrifice of Jesus, His Son, to rescue us.
God delights in our gratitude for who He is and what He has done for us. As followers of Jesus, our natural response is worship. He deserves our affection, our contrition, and our generosity.
Our worship at Faith Community Church takes many forms both in our daily lives and in our gathered services – biblical storytelling, prayer, acts of service, and music to name just a few. Our ultimate act of worship is to participate in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ by serving as God’s agents of reconciliation in our communities. As unlikely recipients of His audacious grace, we strive to worship God with our our words, dreams, desires, and deeds.
As we gather weekly, we aspire to recognize that God is among us – that He is here and that He loves us; then we seek to respond to his presence appropriately.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT OUR WEEKLY WORSHIP GATHERINGS
- Music Style:
- Guitar driven worship with songs from current Christian recording artists. We usually utilize a full band on Sundays which is comprised of artists from our church. While we usually sing current songs, we value the historic hymns of the church and regularly sing these songs as well. Some in attendance raise their hands in exuberant worship; some stand in quiet reverence.
- If you are blessed with the gift of music and wish to consider serving in our worship ministries, please speak with our worship leader.
- Our sermons typically track verse by verse through a book of the Bible and last 35-45 minutes. Some Sundays we recite scripture together, invite people to pray aloud, or have times of testimony to God’s work in our lives.
- Periodically, we incorporate the remembrance if Christ’s life, death, and resurrection through the breaking of bread as a part of our worship. You do not need to be a member of Faith Community Church to participate in communion with us; anyone confessing faith in Jesus is welcome to partake.
