Sabbath is the day we rest to worship God together.

"Sabbath" is an old Hebrew word meaning "rest." It refers to the day God made for us to rest after six days of faithful work and to worship him together for his own faithful work.


The purpose of the church is the worship of God—Father, Son, and Spirit. He is our God, and we are called to worship him in joyful reverence. Our worship is to be simple and spiritual. You may hear us refer to our worship as "liturgy." The word liturgy is from the Greek meaning "the work of the people." Worship is our work, and our work together, as we listen to God and respond to what God says through the preaching, reading, and singing of his word, the sacraments, and the prayers. Our liturgy is shaped by Scripture and shares the story of the gospel.
