Worship Is at the heart of Community

The corporate worship of God is a deeply formative activity – spiritually, educationally, and institutionally; it is at the heart of what we do.
We gather as a community to pray for ourselves and for our world, to sing and to be silent, to confess and receive pardon, to testify to God’s grace and lament our world’s brokenness, to praise and to petition, to proclaim, celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper together, and to enact the good news.
