What Kind Of Worship Style?

The number one purpose of this church is to celebrate God's presence or worship.

Worship is expressing our love to God. We start with worship because that's why we exist. "The Father seeks worshipers and His worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth."

It's ok to have variety in worship style. PCC has chosen to be a kind of a middle-of-the-road church. We're kind of middle-of-the-road.

Eight different ways you can express your worship to God no matter what style you choose to do it in: singing, commitment, praying, hearing the word, giving, baptism, meditating, Lord's Supper. These are all ways, according to the Scripture, that you can demonstrate your love for God and celebrate His presence in your life.

Our particular style is kind of middle-of-the-road, but we use three words to characterize it.

  1. Celebration. One of the distinctions of PCC is people love to be here. They celebrate. It's fun! We have a philosophy that it should be a celebration time to come when you worship the Lord. It should not be like a funeral process. It should be fun. And we will always have celebratory services.
  2. Inspiration. Isaiah 40:31 says "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, mount up with wings as eagles, run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. We design our worship services so that when you come in, dragging, tired, exhausted, you ought to be able to come here and leave feeling better than when you got here. So our services are designed to inspire you, to lift your spirits like a spiritual filling station. The music and messages kind of pour spiritual gasoline back into your tank.
  3. Preparation. Ephesians 4:11 is a pivotal verse when it talks about the church. It says that pastors are to prepare God's people for the work of ministry. There is an intentional design in the messages that is given every Sunday to give you something you can take away that you can use in your life on Monday morning. We feels like if we don't give you something that you can grab onto and use when you live everyday of your life, we've wasted your time, that's we've made the Bible (the most exciting book in the world) not the most boring book in the world.

So you're going to come and celebrate, you're going to be inspired, and you're going to be prepared at PCC, you're going to get something for preparation for the week ahead. That's our number one purpose to celebrate God's presence.
