Glimpses Series, April 2013
Most of us hope to experience God in a big way - a burning bush moment that is unquestionably an encounter with the Divine. But more often than not we see God in glimpses - brief instances when the Divine presence is revealed in small yet profound ways.
InSearch will be exploring these glimpses of God in a series beginning April 21, 2013 at 11:11 a.m. in the Worship Center, and we seek your participation. We are asking you to write down your glimpses of God – those moments when God reveals himself to you – and place them on our cross in the Worship Center.
We’ll have Post-It Notes available on the kiosk in the Upper Commons area for you to write on, and we may incorporate your encounter into the sermon for that week. Everyone in the church is encouraged to participate, so in the days and weeks to come open your eyes to the Divine presence. You may be surprised where you see God in the world.
Worship is more than just showing up to church on a Sunday morning and singing, praying and listening to a sermon. Worship is a communal act of energetically praising a God who loves us unconditionally. It is a ritual of giving thanks to a God who is with us in all things and at all times, good or bad. It is an opportunity for all of us to come together and, as a community, give thanks for our many blessings, and find comfort and help in our struggles.
We are a community on a common journey and share a common goal. We seek to better understand God through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We hope to live out our lives in a way that reflects God’s love in this world.
InSearch is the place where we come together as a community of faith to worship. It is a service grounded in the traditional understanding of worship, yet it combines contemporary music with an authentic and practical message.
We don’t profess to have all the answers; rather we delight in the mystery of a God who is active and present in an imperfect world. We recognize that we are on a common journey and share a common goal. When we come together, we come to worship God, to give thanks, and in doing so to transform our lives and the world.
