Preparing for Worship (11/07/10)

Early on in our worship service we'll confess our sins. We'll do this individually and silently before God, then in a corporate prayer together, and lastly in song as we sing Kyrie Eleison (which means "Lord have mercy").

Preparing for Worship (10/10/10)

Corporate worship is a great thing. Of course, we can worship God on our own and with our families - and we should. But there is something special about the people of God coming together for worship (Hebrews 10:24-25). Thus, we hope that corporate worship is the highlight of your week. In an effort to help you get more out of worship, we're posting a short preview of t...
