There is no penalty for missing worship.  It isn’t grade school and we do not take attendance, but worship is an important part of our faith formation and a sign of our discipleship.  Coming together as a community of faith to worship God isn’t merely something to check off on your Christian to-do list.  Worship, true worship, is about a complete adoration of the God who loves you, saves you, and calls you by name.  It is also where we are encouraged in our faith, and united for one purpose with others who come to worship.  This community of faith encourages us and holds us accountable to our commitment to Christ.  To know Christ, is to worship in spirit and truth.

Christian Education

Learning is an important part of growing in discipleship.  The word “disciple” means student.  Being a student of Jesus is the way we become disciples that make disciples.
