Our Approach to Worship
“It is in the process of being worshipped that God communicates His presence to men.” — C.S. Lewis
Worship is a key element in our lives as followers of God. We strive for worship to be the center of our church’s being. All other expressions of faith find their source and strength in the worship of God.
We share together in worship that is intentional and inclusive. Our desire is to exalt God with proper awe and wonder, celebrate Christ with joy and praise, and listen to the Holy Spirit in reverence and humility. Through an approach that is gracious, loving, redemptive, and welcoming to all, our worship services seek to bring worshippers into the presence of God.
Sunday morning’s worship services fill the sanctuary with music directed towards our Creator, Scripture readings, heartfelt prayers, and hopefully thought-provoking sermons (yes, the pastor is writing this). At FBC, we use well established traditional elements of worship as well as we are often surprised by what modern worship elements, such as videos, we may use to enhance our worship. FBC generally follows the revised common lectionary as guide for worship. Throughout the year, our congregation also gathers for enhanced worship experiences to celebrate Christmas, Easter, and other holy days.
We hope that when you worship with us, you will find a warmth and openness that encourages you to seek God’s presence by making worship an integral part of your life.
