How do we worship?

 

who_are_we_image-1

Our Mission, as a Congregation, is to strengthen our personal and group relationship with Christ, and to reach out to other people. We are drawn together by our need to worship God, to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ, to be supportive of one another, and to serve the community.

You are welcome here! Join us in celebration of a loving and living God where we combine traditional hymns, acoustic contemporary worship, Biblical lessons and a welcoming and affirming environment filled with the healing and uplifting power of the Holy Spirit. In order to facilitate your better understanding of us, our worship service usually follows the following format:

 

Praise and Worship

The Praise and Worship Team at Sacred Light of Christ is committed to serving God by using their musical talents to help prepare people’s hearts for worship. They use a blend of Contemporary and Traditional music in order to minister to all ages. Worship is a celebration, so we have a good time. We sing, pray and praise God. We choose music that is fun to sing, which lifts and inspires us. Small group ensembles and solos are wonderful avenues of service and worship for those interested in using their abilities for the Lord. We are looking forward to seeing more growth in our Music Ministry as our church continues to grow!!

 

Message

Every Sunday, our pastor gives a relevant, down-to-earth, humorous message that is based on Scripture and is designed to be helpful in your everyday life. Many past messages are available online to listen to. These messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and apply biblical teaching to your own life.

 

Worship Through Giving

Each week Sacred light of Christ regular attenders give their tithe (10% of their income) to the Lord. As a guest, there is no need for you to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders, allowing them to thank God for all of the great things He is doing in their lives. It also gives Sacred Light of Christ the means to minister to our community in various outreach capacities.

 

Communion

We observe Communion because the Lord told us to. Communion is a practice that is meant to be observed over and over throughout the life of a Christian. It is a holy time of worship when we corporately come together as one body to remember and celebrate what Christ did for us.

 

In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in his life, death and resurrection. When we observe Communion we show our participation in the body of Christ. His life becomes our life and we become members of each other.

 

However, here at Sacred Light of Christ, we celebrate an “open communion.”  That means you do not have to belong to Sacred Light of Christ or any church to take communion.

 

Communion is very personal and we respect all people’s beliefs about the elements by asking God to bless the elements so that they may become for each of us, as we understand them to be, the body and blood of Jesus.  At Sacred Light of Christ we use wafers (unleavened bread) and grape juice when celebrating communion.

It is our custom to pray over those who receive Communion but it is not required.  If you do not wish to receive a prayer, please let your server know or if you have a special prayer request or need, also let your server know.
