Memorial Day: Real Worship

Randy Christian

Real worship isn’t necessarily what Christians from a given culture believes it is.  Sometimes it takes an experience of worship that is “out of the box” for us to realize what it can really be.  On this Sunday we will have just such an experience.  This will be the most innovative and unique worship experience NOCC has ever had.

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. 


MEMORIAL DAY: The Meaning of the Music

May 25, 2014Randy Christian

Christians worship on Sundays to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus. In essence, Sunday is the anti-memorial day! We don’t memorialize someone who we have lost, but someone we lost and gained again when he rose front he dead! This Memorial day, let’s remember what God planned from the beginning and then brought about because he loves you so much!

POP MUSIC: He's After Me

August 25, 2013Randy Christian

Music gives us an avenue to express thoughts, feelings and intentions–and it teaches us as well. Music has been part of people’s relationship with God for as long as we know–people just like us. And one of the greatest things it does for us is help us to understand and celebrate God himself!

POP MUSIC: Righteous

July 14, 2013Randy Christian

The music of the Hebrews wasn’t the same as ours—but just as ours is important and popular to us, so theirs was to them. Pop Music is a series of sermons on selected Psalms which give us a glimpse into what was important in their lives—beginning with how to live.
