Our worship services are the crowning piece of what we do as a church. We are reverent and joyful. A distinct worship belief we hold to is called the regulative principle of worship – that God commands what God wants us to do in worshipping Him. The flip side is, if God has not commanded it, God does not want us doing it! For example, we never have skits or video clips in church, because we are people of the Word, not people of the image. God commanded plain parts of worship, such as: reading, praying, preaching, giving and singing. That is it. Only what is commanded by God is even allowed in worship!
Music in Worship
In our worship service we primarily use the Trinity Hymnal. We also have a collection of contemporary songs. We have organ or piano accompaniment, and an orchestra twice a month. Our choir sings occasionally throughout the year. We have both vocal and instrumental special music. We encourage our members to use their musical gifts to the glory of God.
