Worship God with Us

At Emmanuel, we believe worshiping God together as his people is a central privilege and commitment of the Christian life.  Worship is giving homage to God.

The scene recorded in Matthew 2 of the wise men coming to the young child Jesus and offering their gifts to him provides a helpful illustration of the nature of worship.  Following the star in the sky, the wise men arrived at the home where they found “the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him” (Matthew 2:11 ESV). We can picture in our minds these men kneeling and bowing before Jesus, recognizing that here was God in human form worthy of all honor, reverence, and respect.

When we gather together for worship each Sunday morning and evening, we are acting like the wise men.  We come before the God of the universe to offer him our whole selves as we confess our sins, sing God’s praises, pray, read Scripture, and listen to the preaching of God’s word.  In turn, God assures us of his love, blesses us, and sends us forth to serve.

Please join us Sunday so we can worship God together!
