Worship at Harvest

Worship at Harvest  

In worship we gather together to worship the triune God through his prescribed ways by the Spirit, through the Son, to the glory of God the Father. We sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, pray, hear God’s word, and give, with reverence and awe, and with joy and celebration for what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. We sing using hymns and some modern songs accompanied by the piano, and often confess our faith with the classic creeds.

We seek to have our worship rooted in and shaped by Scripture. Because Scripture reveals to us who to worship, and how to worship him, we desire that both the content and form of worship be Scriptural. In the creation and redemption, God acts and speaks, and we respond in thankfulness, praise, and obedience. This is how our worship is shaped; it is a dialogue between us and God. He speaks in grace and mercy, and we respond with thankfulness to him. Our worship not only replays the gospel, but forms us in it.

During each service we receive an offering which is one way we express our gratitude to God for what he has done for us and given to us. We use these monies to maintain the ministries the Lord has given us to do. We do not expect or depend on you, as a visitor, to give. Feel free to pass the plate on to the next person in the row or back to the usher.

If you have small children and prefer to worship together as a whole family we encourage you to do so. We recognize that small children might find it challenging to sit for a whole service and that, from time to time, they might even become disruptive to the point of interfering with the worship of those sitting near you. If this happens you may wish to take your child out to the hallway where a kid corral is provided.

If you are planning a visit you might be wondering if we have an unwritten dress code. Our members and friends arrive in anything from casual to semi-formal and you will not be judged for what you wear.
