Why Bother With Worship?

Why Bother with Worship?

Maybe you remember how someone at church said something that hurt you and you never forgave that person.  Maybe you have concluded that the church is just a bunch of hypocrites.  Maybe you have convinced yourself that all the church wants is your money.

Hurt feelings.  Wrong conclusions.  Negative attitudes.  These get us nowhere.  In contrast, when you confess your sins, God is faithful and just and he will forgive you of your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.  (See 1 John 1:9)

Confessing your sins and receiving God’s glorious, life-giving forgiveness is a big part of worship.  I invite you to join us on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. to receive so much from God and be reminded of how much God loves you.  Check out the “Our Church” tab for more worship and Bible study opportunities.
