Worship Works Wonders

The title of this article seems a little misleading when you look at Mr. Bean struggling to stay awake in church. Unfortunately, for many of us this is our all too often mental image of worship. But it doesn’t have to be. Contrast Mr. Bean with the angels on that first Christmas night who appeared to the shepherds thundering, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests!” The words they spoke resound with excitement and enthusiasm.

What has happened to us 2000 year later? Has hearing the same story over and over diluted the power of the message? Have we become spiritually lazy by falling into the trap of wanting to be entertained rather than giving of ourselves in worship? Has our prosperity dulled our sensitivity to the urgency of the Christmas message?

Whatever the reason might be, we are not condemned to boring worship. The worship which transformed the lives of millions of people in the past is still available to us today. Join us for one of our weekend services. Together let’s open our hearts to worship which transforms lives for eternity!

Saturday evening worship: 6:00 pm
