What is Worship?
When talking about worship, we typically use the word worship to describe those times when God’s people come together to focus their attention on God and His mighty acts in history and in their own lives. Worship, in this sense, occurs when the Body of Christ intentionally comes together in celebration of what God has already done and in anticipation of what He will yet do. When people think of worship, or even of “going to church,” this type of community gathering is often what they have in mind.
But there is another aspect to the word worship. The Apostle Paul often describes worship as a way of living, or as an entire life of grateful obedience to God. In his letter to the Colossians, Paul says it like this: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (NIV). In this sense, our whole life, each and every moment, becomes an opportunity to worship God.
The Sanctuary Choir meets every Sunday from 9:00 to 9:45 am for rehearsal. Choir is open to anyone who loves to sing and is of high school age or older. The choir typically participates in our worship services twice a month.
The Plymouth Band is made up of persons who play the piano, guitar, and drums alongwith string and woodwind players. We serve on the Sundays with the brass group and add beauty and energy to the more contemporary songs we sing.
The Plymouth Brass is a group of brass players that serve to enrich the worship life of this worshiping community. We participate every other Sunday and for special services to add vitality and excitement to the song of the people.
Various instrumentalists and vocalists of our congregation enrich our worship services by sharing their talents with us. If you would like to participate in this way, please contact Doug De Vries.
During the morning worship service, children ages 3 to 1st grade are invited to participate in the Children’s Blessing, then go downstairs to the music room for a time of singing together with Mr. Doug DeVries, Minister of Music and Liturgy.
