The Heart of Worship | week three Worship through Vocation


October 1, 2017

Worship is not a perfunctory duty. It is not obligatory in nature. In fact, worship in any vehicle is always…
If worship is our gift of participating in the life of the Father, Son, and Spirit, then does worship look like outside of the Sunday morning Church environment? What would it be like to “worship” on Monday morning in a staff meeting, or on Thursday at school?

Don’t miss this Sunday, as Kevan takes us through the third segment in our series, The Heart of Worship… WORSHIP THROUGH VOCATION.

The Heart of Worship | week two Worship through Music


September 24, 2017

“Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants. Don’t drink too much wine. That cheapens your life. Drink the Spirit of God, huge draughts of him. Sing hymns instead of drinking songs! Sing songs from your heart to Christ. Sing praises over everything, any excuse for a song to God the Father in the name of our Master, Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5.17-20 MSG).”

In week one, we discussed the fact that worship is the basic Christian posture. This week, we’ll discuss the idea that music is one of the ways in which we express worship, or our participation in the life of the Father, Son and Spirit.

Don’t miss this Sunday, as Brian takes us through the second segment in our series, The Heart of Worship… WORSHIP THROUGH MUSIC.

The Heart of Worship | week one Introduction and Definitions


September 17, 2017

Worship. It’s what you were made for. But, what do we really mean when we use the word “worship” and how does the practice of it shape our lives? Is worship simply a collection of catchy lyrics and ethereal guitar parts or a 20-minute segment at the beginning of a church gathering? Perhaps… worship is much, much more.

Over the next 7 weeks, we will be delving deeper into the subject of worship, what it is, what it looks like to practice a lifestyle of worship, and more. Brian will be kicking the series off this week with INTRODUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS. We hope you’ll join us!

The Put On | Leon DeHaan September 10, 2017


“But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him.”
Colossians 3.8-10 NASB

We’re honored once again to have Leon DeHaan with us, teaching on putting off the old man and putting on the NEW; (1) what it means, (2) how we do it, (3) the process of renewal, and (4) the goal toward which we are being renewed. Leon is a pastor of pastors, a seasoned Bible teacher and is always a blessing.
