Night of Worship

This Saturday night will be a special Night of Worship here at Grace Church beginning @ 6pm and lasting until 7:15. Matt McElravy, our Worship Arts Director here at Grace Church will be leading us in this very special evening.

This evening is being designed to provide an environment in which people can come and spend an extended time in the presence of God, praising and worshiping through multi-sensory means. A worship team will lead congregational singing with prayer times interspersed throughout the evening.

Prayer stations will be located throughout the room where people can go at any time during the evening to pray alone or with others. A communion station will be set up where people can go at any time during the evening to partake of the bread and cup if they choose to do so. It will be a very laid-back, relaxed atmosphere in which people can respond and worship however they choose.

Matt will also be introducing a brand new song entitled, Be Magnified, that he has spent the last two years writing. We at Grace Church have been privileged to enjoy and benefit from some of Matt’s original songs and I am sure that this new work will become one of the favorites for those who attend Grace Church.

We were created to worship and this Saturday is a chance to do just that. Plan to come out and be part of this special evening and invite your family and friends to join you as well. Please note that there will be NO nursery or childcare for this Night of Worship.

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the skies. Praise him high above the earth. Praise him, all you angels. Praise him, all you armies of heaven. Praise him, sun and moon. Praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, highest heavens and you waters above the sky. Let them praise the Lord, because they were created by his command.He put them in place forever and ever; he made a law that will never change.

Praise the Lord from the earth, you large sea animals and all the oceans, lightning and hail, snow and mist, and stormy winds that obey him, mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, crawling animals and birds, kings of the earth and all nations, princes and all rulers of the earth, young men and women, old people and children.

Praise the Lord, because he alone is great. He is more wonderful than heaven and earth. God has given his people a king. He should be praised by all who belong to him; he should be praised by the Israelites, the people closest to his heart. Praise the Lord!
