Basics of Worship

Stephen Ulangca and Randy Christian

What is worship?  When we think about worship and when we think about coming to worship our Lord, we tend to think of it as the music of the church, the singing of the church.  But is it really?  What does the word “worship” even mean?  And does it equal music?  Let us come prepared to focus on the Lord together.  Let us be able to leave all the distractions behind us, so that there’s only one thing on our minds, because it’s all about our God and not about us.

Christmas Is - Celebration

Randy Christian

For most people, the idea of Christmas being a celebration is pretty natural. After all, we have school Christmas parties, office Christmas parties, church Christmas parties, family Christmas gatherings … and we do celebrate! However, we don’t always know what we’re celebrating, and we don’t always know the right way to celebrate. For some, Christmas celebrations are among the most stressful and depressing time of the year! This shouldn’t be— and it doesn’t have to be.

Are their potential dangers in how we treat this special celebration? Join us as we listen in on Paul’s comments to the Corinthians and explore their application to us.
