“Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord”.
Psalm 150:6

Right throughout the Bible, especially in the Psalms, we see creation springing forth in worship. It seems that God designed everything to worship him by default.

The only exception to this norm for God’s creation is us. Ever since sin became natural to men and women, we have to choose to worship God.

While Jesus' divine journey to earth has many aspects, a key part is restoring God’s beloved people from rebels to worshippers.

When you come to faith in Jesus, this is the beginning of a life of worship.

When you lovingly follow Jesus into his freedom for you, the worship continues.

When you gather together with us to share “Good or God” stories, pray, share communion and sing of your love for him…our hearts for worshipping God are expanded. As I’ve preached, written and led lately, these times are set aside for us to cherish the presence of God and all those who seek it.

We are blessed to be able to worship God wherever we are - His presence is with us wherever we go - but God calls us to make worshipping together with others a primary rhythm of our life. He hopes that we are each encouraged and built up in faith, hope and love.

I want to encourage you to take time this Sunday to drive to the mountains and worship with us again in a beautiful hall on the side of a mountain and expand your heart with the love of God!

It truly is what we’re designed for.

Cheers, God Bless and see you Sunday in the mountains! [details below]
