Worship is the term we use for the regular Sunday gathering when we come together with the primary objective to connect with God. While God can use almost anything in His creation to remind us of His power, love, and infinite nature, during our English Ministry worship service, we typically utilize music (contemporary style songs), corporate prayer, giving, and reading Scripture (the Old and Testaments of the Bible) together as key elements in group worship of God. Other art forms, such as poetry, visual art, and drama, are also sometimes used to direct our attention to Him. We welcome you and your family to join us on Sunday morning as we honor the One who made us and who loves us!
Fellowship is the term we use for our gatherings when we come together with the primary objective to connect to each other, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. In today’s information age, people often find it difficult to connect with other people. However, we as people are “social creatures” and need to form relationships with others. The English Ministry provides the atmosphere and the setting to comfortably connect with new friends in a safe environment with fun and interesting activities.
Service is the term we use for our gatherings when we come together with the primary objective to serve our community. It is a core principle of the Christian faith that every follower of Jesus Christ has been created to do something significant with their life (Ephesians 2:10). You were made for a purpose; you can accomplish that purpose and be an enormous blessing in your town and your world!
