Morning worship is at 10:00 a.m.
You can come a little early to get ready and to connect with others.
You can wear what you like.
Ordinarily, we celebrate Communion (the Lord’s Supper) on the 1st Sunday of the month.
We always celebrate it on Easter Sunday.
Our worship is not done because we’re so excellent or have such great faith. Rather, through the Holy Spirit, we together participate in Jesus’ perfect offering to the Father.
It’s been said that worship is a “whirlwind of divine activity.” With that in mind we look for, enjoy, and aim for the following biblical themes in our worship:
worship and theology go hand in hand
worship is remembering God’s deeds in history
worship is dialogic – a conversation between God and us
worship relies on the Holy Spirit
worship is fellowship, corporate
worship is participation in the Kingdom to come
worship is covenantal
worship is participative
worship is holistic
worship is expansive
worship is reverent
worship is expectant
worship is intergenerational
worship draws on many cultures (all nations)
worship is sacramental
worship is evangelistic
worship is educational
Or, in whirlwind format:
- Sermons for the 2nd Half of Fall … will be on Bible words on which people in All Nations asked for sermons. We’ll start with the funnest one: “predestination.” Other Bible words will include “iniquity” (like, what’s the difference between that and regular ol’ sin?), “righteousness,” and “faith.”
A peculiarity regarding our Bible reading in worship: One thing we usually do is change the word “LORD” in capital letters and say “Yahweh” instead. Why? Read this sermon on Exodus 3:13-15 to find out.
Our morning worship is often enriched by liturgical dance. Adults and children participate! Dorette gives leadership to our dancers on Sunday mornings. In 2016, she offered a workshop to help members of our congregation more fully understand the Scriptural foundation for liturgical dance and the historic use of colour and movement in worship. You can explore her teaching here.
