Worship Ministries is thrilled to bless you with this reminder of our unity in Jesus Christ through our worship.
The faith practice of wonder helps us glimpse with surprise just how creative, faithful, good, big, and present God is.
In this service, there are ideas for ways to pray in creative and interactive ways to show that prayers are not only done while seated, folding our hands and closing our eyes.
The faith practice of remembering centers our attention on what God has done in our lives, deepening our assurance that God is with us here and now, and expanding our hope for what God will yet do.
Service is a response to God’s love for us in Jesus Christ that teaches us to live like Jesus through specific, tangible actions that contribute to the dignity and well-being of the people we serve.
Here are some practical ideas on how to incorporate listening into worship.
Through the faith practice of celebrating we delight in circumstances, relationships, and occasions that help us remember and anticipate God's abundant goodness, creativity, faithfulness, beauty, and love.
How can we not walk away from the race after crossing our own finish lines but instead continue to make a safe path and a loving cheering section for those still on the course?
Worship Ministries is offering the certificate (including all 4 courses!) at a significantly reduced price of $500/person for 10 CRC participants.
