Worship Guide for Sunday June 5th @ HCBCDS

Logo-FinalWorship is the lifeblood of the church. It’s the very reason for our existence, to glorify God the Father in the Son through the power of the Holy Spirit. Singing on Sunday mornings in a worship gathering is just one small part of that, but it’s an important and vital part. We are commanded to sing together, and this weekly post is designed to help you prepare to do that.

The apostle Paul instructed the Ephesian church to not be like the pagans in their misguided worship but to “be filled with the Spirit.” How do we do that? He tells us that as well.

This article argues that great art, even if it’s “safe for the whole family” can point to God and create a space for people to meet with him.

Here’s the article: Continue reading
