Current Worship Series

Refrigerator Theology

It seems like whenever I have company, or whenever I go to someone’s house, we always congregate in the kitchen. It doesn’t matter how nice the living room is, how comfortable the furniture would feel, or how much the host might prefer we gather in another room, it’s in the kitchen that we find ourselves. Perhaps it’s the food. Maybe it’s because we don’t want the one hosting to be left alone as he or she prepares. It just seems that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s in the kitchen that we are so often nourished. It is there that our thirst is quenched. When my kids come home from school they make a beeline to the refrigerator, thirsty or hungry. And often, that’s where they find me. It’s at the kitchen table that they do their homework, we have family dinner, where we play a game, or thumb through messages on our phones. Throughout the months of July and August our worship will gather around the theme of “Refrigerator Theology.”

Worship Times: 9:00AM & 11:00AM Sunday Mornings

Sunday morning worship is a time to praise God through visual, musical, and spoken word that inspires us in our everyday lives. The traditional service is an atmosphere that is uniquely engaging yet relaxed. We hope you’ll explore the current series and plan to worship online with us this weekend.

Most people know that churches engage in worship, but they may not understand why. We worship to enter into God’s presence, to praise God as our Lord, to learn lessons of faith, to remember we are not alone on the journey of faith, to hear the call of God upon our lives, to find forgiveness when we need it, comfort in times of despair, inspiration when our hearts are low and strength to lean upon in times to come. Worship, all our worship, is offered to honor God and make a real difference in our life and yours.
