Worship is invitational.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before Him with joyful singing.”
When we are exhorted to worship we are invited to participate in the glory and goodness of God. We are invited in by his lovingkindness and faithfulness for us.
Moreover, we are invited into a collective experience.
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.”
While moments of private praise are good and sweet it is incumbent upon every Christian to enter the preverbal gates of God’s court. Why? Because we’re not just being invited into God’s presence, we’re being invited into the greater community of the saints.
This weekend we have a special opportunity for you to enter into the greater community.
Evangelical Baptist Church, Lakes Region Vineyard Church, and Real Life Church are sponsoring a community worship night at Evangelical Baptist Church on Sunday, October 20, from 6:00-8:00 PM. The joint worship team will kick off the night with a set of songs. We will break to pray for the churches of New England, then wrap up the night with another set of worship songs. Please join us! 50 Washington Street, Laconia.
