Series Description

Have you ever done something one way for so long that you forget why you do it? Or when that way changed, you felt lost? That’s been the story of the church this year. As the pandemic shook up how we do things, it left many of us wondering, what form church should take? What really is essential to a life of faith? As we start a new year, our resolution is to rediscover our WHY. What’s the real purpose of our church practices? What’s the WHY behind our HOW? Why worship and pastors? Why bread and baptisms? Why small groups and serving?

Corporate Prayers

Call to Worship: We’ve come to worship God, who loved us before we were yet born, who knows us even better than we know ourselves, whose presence never leaves us, and whose love for us never ceases. This is our God!

Prayer of Illumination: Come, Holy Spirit, open our ears to hear your Word and turn our hearts again to you; through Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Father, one God, now and forever. Amen.
