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: Our souls wait in silence; our hope rests in God, our rock, our salvation, our refuge. We will not be shaken. In this time of worship, we pour out our hearts because we trust in God’s steadfast love.

Prayer of Illumination: Come, Holy Spirit, breathe new life into us now and lead us into true worship and faithful discipleship; through Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Father, one God, now and forever. Amen.
