What is Worship?
Christian worship is a celebration of God with us through His Son, Jesus Christ. At worship at Memorial, we come together to have a conversation with God through worship.
We receive God’s love through:
Hearing the Word: Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. (John 17:17)
Baptism: Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we to may live a new life. (Romans 6:3-4)
Lord’s Supper: For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. (1 Corinthians. 11:23-26)
We respond to God’s love by:
Singing: Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:19)
Praying: Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. (Psalm 95:6-7)
Meditating: May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD.(Psalm 104:34)
Confessing: Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. (Matthew 10:32)
Giving: Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything -- all she had to live on." (Mark 12:41-44)
