Twice every Sunday, at 9:30 AM and again at 3:30 PM, Providence church gathers together to meet with her God - that is the essence of worship. We believe that the purpose of worship is to praise God. He is praised by our presence in worship, by our songs, and by our listening to the preaching of his Holy Word.
What is a Worship Service?
Receiving God's Gifts
How do we receive these gifts? God gives them to us especially through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. As we listen, we hear from the Bible all about God's gifts, how he has sacrificed His own Son to save us from our sins, how He has sent His Holy Spirit to give us faith and even live in our hearts. It's really amazing what God does! As well, we hear God's will explained in the preaching so that we understand how we are to live as Christians, God's holy people, so that He is glorified!
Why do we worship together? Simply put, because God calls us to! God has given us the Bible as His Word, and in it He calls His people to meet with Him in worship. The church is God's work: He not only saves sinners, but also brings them together in His church. In the Old Testament God chose Abraham and his descendants as His people. Since the coming of Jesus Christ, however, God has opened the doors of his church as wide as the world: all nations must hear the good news of Jesus' death and resurrection and believe in Him. Providence church is part of this worldwide work of Jesus Christ.
