Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Pictures, videos, words, music,
the internet, other people...
all can enhance the learning
and worship experience.
But the true meaning of worship
is your personal relationship with God.

"Worship gatherings are not always spectacular,
but they are always supernatural.
And if a church looks for or works for the spectacular,
she may miss the supernatural.
If a person enters a gathering to be wowed
with something impressive,
with a style that fits him just right,
with an order of service and song selection
designed just the right way,
that person may miss the supernatural presence of God.
Worship is supernatural whenever people come hungry
to respond, react, and receive from God
for who He is and what He has done.
A church worshipping as a Creature of the Word
doesn't show up to perform or be entertained;
she comes desperate and needy, thirsty for grace,
receiving from the Lord and the body of Christ,
and then gratefully receiving what she needs
as she offers her praise -
the only proper response to the God who saves us."
- Matt Chandler
