Worship is the focal point of Christian life in community. It is the starting point for education, fellowship, and service for people of all ages. Worship is the beginning and end of our corporate Christian lives. In a corporate service of baptism we are brought into the fellowship of the Church and the finality of our lives is recognized in a service of thanksgiving and remembrance in a Christian funeral. Worship is the centerpiece of our corporate experience in faith. It is where we learn and proclaim our faith, where we sing, pray, and share our gifts from God with others. It is both the construction site and the launching area of our individual and corporate ships of faith.
