The Sunday morning worship service is, for most people, the initial and primary point of connect with a local church. This makes sense because the corporate worship of God is the “biggest” thing most churches do! This is no accident: God’s people know that we were created for God’s glory (Isa 43:6-7) and that worshipping the Lord is the highest activity in which we can engage.
Corporate worship is highly regarded at Grace Covenant Church.
Our worship services seek to reflect the various truths of Scripture and aid the worshipper in fostering an increasingly deep relationship with both our Lord and fellow worshippers.
On the Lord’s Day we gather together to offer God the sacrifices of praise (Heb. 13:15), which give Him glory and honor (Rev. 1:10; 4:11). Corporate worship is the communal expression of delight, awe, and gratitude that come from personally knowing our infinitely glorious and sovereign God and Savior who rescued us from the bondage of our own sin.
Praise emanates from the soul of those who have been rescued from darkness and transferred to the Kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). This gratitude leads us to remember each day, which He has made, and we are to rejoice in it (Ps. 118:24). Worship, therefore, is joyous! At the same time, it is a serious thing to approach the living God. Indeed, Hebrews 12:29 refers to God as being a “consuming fire.” God alone has the prerogative to determine whether or not worship is acceptable in His sight (Gen 4:3-7, John 4:23-24, Heb 12:28). Worship, therefore, is to be characterized by reverence and awe!
At Grace, we combine the themes of “joy” and “reverence” by saying that our worship should be characterized by reverential joy.
The goal of the worship services at Grace Covenant Church is to direct the congregation to the glorious majesty of God and marvel at the wonder of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We do this by means of the reading and preaching of God’s Word, prayer, confession of sins, offerings of thanksgiving, and the observance of the two sacraments.
A key aspect of our corporate worship services is our robust music ministry. At Grace we are blessed to have several gifted musicians and singers who serve the congreation as they lead us in singing praises to our Lord.
We invite you to join us for worship that is serious about pursuing Spirit enabled reverential joy in our gracious Lord, Jesus, to the glory and praise of God the Father!
