Worship is declaring, with our lips and lives, that God is more important than anything else to us, that he is our deepest desire, that his inherent worth is beyond everything else we hold dear.
– J. Ligon Duncan III
Worshipping the Lord as he reveals himself in the Bible is the purpose for which we’ve been created (1 Corinthians 10:31). The chief aim of our lives – both as we gather on Sunday mornings and as we live throughout the week – is to “glorify God and to enjoy him forever.” Below are some of distinctive aspects of worship you will discover at Grace Fellowship:
What do you believe about worship? At Grace Fellowship we believe that worship is our grateful and heartfelt response of appreciation for and allegiance to God. We listen to him speak through his Word as it is read and preached. We respond in prayer and singing. We seek to find ourselves filled with “reverence, and awe” (Hebrews 12:28) in his presence. Our aim is for worship to be intelligible, communicating that God is near to us, knowable, relational, merciful, and dependable.
What is your music like? Our music is not limited to a particular genre or time period. Rather than seeking to be “contemporary” or “traditional” the criteria for our music at Grace Fellowship is that it be reverent, tactful, theologically sound, intelligible, singable, and engaging to the mind, will, and affections.
What about my kids? Children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services from beginning to end. We will never insist that families send their children to nursery or children’s church. However, we do have nursery and children’s ministry for kids during the worship service if parents wish to utilize this option.
How often do you celebrate the Lord’s Supper? At Grace Fellowship, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month.
