Worship is typically viewed by humanity as what we do to approach a higher power. Even in places where worship is considered a two-way communication (God to man, man to God), worship is viewed as an act to appease God or to earn His favor. This view of worship has everything backwards. We do not ascend to God, rather he descends to us. He does this not to give us all the things we want, but rather the things He knows we need.
While we offer both a traditional and contemporary service, both of our services are ordered around the gifts of God to us in worship. Our worship has a flow to it, both maintaining order and highlighting how it is God comes to us. We come together to receive these and respond is praise for all He has given us - as has been done since the early church:
And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. ~ Acts 2:42
Below you'll find some elements of worship common to both our services, and the meaning behind them. We'd love to worship our Savior with you here in Sedona.
