Our faith is one that believes that God is worthy of our worship every single day. Considering that we spend a large part of our lives in our homes, what does it look like to worship God together as a family? Verses like Romans 12:1 remind us that worship isn’t just about our times of singing on Sunday mornings. True worship involves and requires our whole lives. This Spring we will be focusing on how to be intentional in our worship of God together as a family. It’s time to take our role seriously – and by seriously, we don’t always mean being serious. In fact, we believe that fun, whimsy, and adventure are some of the most important things in our family life. Actually, you’ll see the 6 pillars below that we believe contribute to worship in family life. This March, we are inviting Jonathan and Emily Martin who are a short, travel-sized, musical family, who present music through their ministry The Word in Worship, to come help us focus on what it means to worship as a family and pass down our faith to our kids. They will lead us in a fun family oriented worship experience that you will not want to miss!

The God of Generations Family Worship Night
Sunday March 8th //
6:00pm-7:00pm // Free Event!
followed by a Reception/Meet & Greet

  • Singing
    • Throughout the Word we are commanded to sing to God!The thought of singing in our homes might be an intimidating thought at first to those families that don’t consider themselves to have talents in the arena of music. The truth is that praise is one of the most natural things we do as humans. We can’t help but to exclaim about the things we enjoy.We want to sing together as families because we want to enjoy God together.
  • Prayer
    • Prayer is a humbling act of dependence. Our kids need to see our dependence on God When they’re young, kids tend to see their parents as heroes. It’s good for them to see us bow the knee in humility to the one true Hero because the truth is that we will let our kids down at some point. But God will never let us down. Through praying together we lay down a path for our kids to follow so that they know the way to the Father on their own. Through prayer we acknowledge the One who rules over all.
  • Learning
    • God gave us our brains and our ability to grow, why not learn and grow together? The Word reveals God to us and so we want to read the Bible and meditate on it together. While learning the Bible is a core and essential element to our worship together, we also want to learn about the world around us because according to Psalm 19, all of creation also reveals God to us if we’ll pay attention. Create a culture where we enjoy learning together because almost everything around us points us back to God.
  • Serving
    • Giving up our lives for the sake of others is a way to reflect the image of God and the Gospel. Ephesians 2:10 reminds us that God made us. He gave us all the gifts, talents, and experiences that we have. We want to learn how to serve one another in the family by asking, how can I contribute to the family? How can I encourage, strengthen, and help the family win? These are all questions each family member can ask. But as a family, we also want to look outward and consider how God might want to use our team unit to be a blessing to the world around us.
  • Having Fun
    • Author Tedd Tripp has wisely said that, “the things we do together provides context for relationships.”As a parent, one of the things I want more than anything is to have in influential voice in the life of my kids. When I make a point to enjoy my kids and have fun with them, when I show interest in their interests, when I simply get on the floor and play with them, I’m showing my kids that they have a place to belong. Our fun together creates context for the serious parts of our lives, including our faith.
  • Loving Each Other
    • In John 13:35 Jesus tells us that the world will know us by how we love each other. That means that when we are learning how to love each other well, we are glorifying God and displaying Christ to the world. Loving each other is an important part of our worship! We live in a culture that seems to think that loving another person is easy and as natural as breathing. 1 Corinthians 13 shows us the real need to be intentional about how we live out love. Family relationships are one of the best places to grow in love.

We are looking forward to Sunday March 8th at 6pm as Jonathan and Emily Martin lead us in this family friendly worship experience. This is for all ages kids-adults and we encourage you to invite at least one other family to join you. For families with kids 3 and under, we'll have childcare available for you!
