Bible Verse

I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Our feet are standing in your gates, O Jerusalem. That is where the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel. There the thrones for judgment stand, the thrones of the house of David. (Psalm 122:1-2; 4-5)

8 Elements of Worship

The Worship service is God’s appointed way to commune with his people.  When God speaks, his people listen and respond.  8 In this sense the worship service is a dialogue between God and his people.  What we do in the service is important as it represents and gives expression to the elements of communion and dialogue with God.  Let’s look at these elements. 8 Liturgy=service
