We talk about worshiping in gratitude because we are so grateful to God for all things. For loving us, forgiving us, and for bringing us together so we can worship him. Gratitude is a way of life and definitely the way to worship.
Our primary worship gathering is on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. All are welcome to join in rejoicing in the love of Jesus for all of God's creation. We are what is called a liturgical church, so there is a pattern to our worship. At first, to some, the pattern may be a little different than they are used to. We include a lot of scripture in our worship because the word of God is important, and hearing the learning about it helps us have a better relationship with him and helps us become better people as we apply his wisdom to life today.
We sing. Some Sundays we sing songs that are centuries old and remind us of how God has been with us through the ages. Other Sundays, we sing more contemporary songs. We pray together for the world and one another and those who are oppressed, and we believe it gives God joy to hear many voices praying. The people here don't put on airs, so neither does our worship. We love God, and we want him to know it.
We have one service together. People wear what they feel most comfortable wearing, so don't worry about it. We are fairly certain that God does not care, either. The service is about 50 minutes long. When we are done, most of us gather together in a social hall where there is coffee and usually something very tasty to eat. We really enjoy sitting around together and talking. And eating. But some people don't always stay, and that's okay too.
