Corporate Worship as the Body of Christ
Coming together as the Body of Christ is the cornerstone of Christian life. As Jesus said:
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
By congregating in God’s house – rejoicing as we share the Good News, lifting up our prayer concerns, and offering praise for blessings bestowed – we encourage each other in the faith.
Sunday Worship Options
We invite you to join us at one of our Sunday services.
Early Service at 8:45 AM in the sanctuary: Lay leadership, music from our praise team Voices of Praise, and the pastor’s sermon combine for an informal, Spirit-led service.
Traditional Service at 10:45 AM in the sanctuary: Traditional hymns, music from our Chancel Choir and the Rehobeth Ringers, and affirmations of faith complement the pastor’s sermon to provide a warm and meaningful message of hope and faith.
Note: After their sharing time during the service, the children leave the sanctuary for Children’s Church, featuring songs, Bible stories, and activities.
Special Services: We also have a variety of special worship experiences during the liturgical year – such as our White Gifts and Christmas Eve services during Advent and the Maundy Thursday, Tenebrae, and Easter sunrise services during Holy Week – to highlight and celebrate events central to the Christian faith. Look for announcements of these special services on our home page.
Equally important as shared worship is having daily, private time with God. The Gospels give numerous examples of Christ withdrawing from his disciples and other followers to be alone with God. Invariably, Jesus emerged from these times of seclusion recharged, strengthened, and encouraged to do God’s will, despite the ultimate cost to himself.
We, too, need to retreat to a quiet place where we can study God’s word, meditate on its application and meaning in our own life, and lift our concerns and thanks in prayer. Most of all, we need to quietly listen for Father God’s whispers of guidance and encouragement. In the words of Jesus:
“But whenever you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
