"Worship is not a cheerful gathering of nice people who sing songs and feel good.
Our Sunday services follow the fourfold pattern inherited from the early church:
We gather around God's word
(introit, call to worship, hymn, prayer of confession)
We hear God's word proclaimed
(children's message, anthem, scripture readings, sermon)
We respond in faith and gratitude
(Apostles' Creed, pastoral prayer, Lord's Prayer)
We go out into the world
(hymn, benediction, postlude)
The spirit of our worship could best be described as 'joyful reverence', with a robed choir, hymns old and new accompanied by the pipe organ, and a desire to offer to God that which is both beautiful and thoughtful.

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.
I Corinthians 11:23-26 (NIV)
