Relationship With God

Posted by on | Comments Off on Relationship With God

Our Passion is Him.

We call it extravagantWORSHIP. We want to worship and walk with him 24/7. On Sundays we come together as a group in a service we call a Gathering to worship Him together. This is a time of building up our faith in God and worshipping Him together with others. Our worship style varies from week to week. It can be very celebratory or deeply intimate as the Holy Spirit leads. It is our desire for you to encounter the Trinity during the service. Towards this goal, you may hear prayers; prophetic words; words of instruction; encouragement; and exhortation. The Gathering is also a good place to start getting acquainted with others.

All journeys have a destination. Our’s is Jesus. Our desire is to hang around Him. Our reward is His presence!

We started in relationship with Him in the Garden of Eden and it will end walking beside Him as His Bride. We believe we can start the relationship with Him that we will have in eternity now.

Every journey needs a guide. Our’s is the same one Jesus had when He was on earth – the Holy Spirit.  No matter how many turns or how long it takes we are committed to following His lead. He is often like the wind (John 3:8), not knowing where He will blow from or too, but the adventure is worth it!

Have You Experienced His Presence?

The pollsters now say that among people who regularly attend worship services at Christian churches, 50% have not experienced God’s presence in their lives at anytime in the past 12 months and maybe as many as 1/3 say they have never experienced His presence.

This is why we put such a premium on spending time in waiting on Our Heavenly Father in each of our group meetings. We are constantly looking for Him, seeking His face, and forever lingering in that place that welcomes His presence.

Paying the price of remaining unencumbered by time constraints and preplanned structures is worth it. We are learning to wait on Him in ways that really seem to attract and please Him. We want to know our bridegroom now and not wait to some distance time frame!

Our Worship Times

At any of these worship times, you may see people actively worshiping by raising hands; bowing or laying prostrate on the floor; dancing in place or around the sanctuary; painting; waving banners; shouting; even blowing whistles or shofars. The celebration can be both party-like and deeply intimate. You may hear prayers; prophetic words; songs; words of instruction; encouragement; exhortation; even poetry, all in keeping with I Corinthians 14:25-26. And, before the gathering time is over the Holy Spirit always gives direction and freedom to minister healing, deliverance, impartation and empowerment.

Desiring More Of Him

We are constantly making room in our Sunday Morning gathering for the experimentation of something newer, something fresher, and something more in keeping with what the Father is showing us in this day. And it is okay that these new ways require some getting used to, some adaptations of old and new worship styles, and a great deal of stretching past our comfort zones. Tracking with the God of the unpredictable is often very uncomfortable to those of us from the more traditional backgrounds.
