Gather in worship
Acts 2:42-47 "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
Gathering to glorify God
Ever since the early church began, Christians have tended to gather. Acts 2:42-47 is a descriptive snapshot of all the things they did when they gathered. We believe things happen when we are together that don't happen when we are alone. So we gather for these four reasons:
We Gather to Worship. When we worship we focus on God, His character and His worth, we give thanks for what He's done, we acknowledge His greatness, we admit our dependence upon Him. We take time to praise Him, to worship Him together.
We Gather to Learn. Our goal in our Sunday morning sermons is to provide the church body with a healthy "diet" of expository teaching, drawn from the Old and New Testaments. The Scriptures reveal and remind. We learn to see God, ourselves, life and history from God's perspective. Our aim is not simply to gain Bible knowledge, but to always seek life-related applications, to ask ourselves what this knowledge looks like in the coming week.
We Gather to Celebrate. Everyone experiences defining moments and rites of passage in their lives, and as a community we want to pay attention to those. We want to celebrate new babies, baptisms of new believers, communion, milestones, special days.
We Gather to Focus. We want to remember who we are and what we are called to be as a church.
