Do you sing in the shower? What about your car? I saw guy pull up beside me at a stoplight with his window rolled down, letting it go. He was belting out all the words to his favorite tune it appeared.
When I first stated going to church, I never sang. I didn’t know the songs for one thing. I sure didn’t want to draw attention to myself in a crowd where I didn’t know everyone or what the church routine was about.
This weekend at Journey Community Christian Church we continue the summer series, THE BUCKET LIST. This time we’ll discover The Bucket List of things to do, before too late, we should include WORSHIP of God on that list.
If you are new to our Journey Church weekend WORSHIP routine, you may feel like I did when I was new to church? Maybe you are feeling a little concerned, not wanting to do something wrong, weird or embarrassing?
I thought I might dig out some notes modified from earlier days of study which help guide anyone to better understand public gathering times for worship. Below is a list of a few of those Biblical facts included in worship. Enjoy and hope to see you this weekend in-person or online for Journey Sat@6pm/Sunday@10:30am.
