Sunday Services 10 AM

We are called to worship; it is ingrained within our very being.  Sunday Services seek to worship God through contemporary praise songs, newer versions of old hymns and some traditional hymns as well, scripture readings, prayer time and special highlights.  Worship calls us to worship to an audience of one – to God alone.  Sing a joyful song unto the Lord and praise his glorious name.

3. D - Sunrise Service 2016Worship is:

* A heart’s attitude desiring to glorify God
* Meditations on the Words and Music
* Words of knowledge and prophecy
* Scripture readings
* Prayer

Worship of God is mostly about our participation in worship as a community. It is also participation, through the Spirit, in Christ’s worship of the Father. Through the power of the Spirit, we can be drawn into a closer relationship, a closer understanding, and even a more spiritually fulfilling worship experience. Christ is glorified through genuine, heartfelt worship of both his divinity, and his Lordship over our lives.

Basically, worship is anything that glorifies and affirms God as High Priest in our lives as affirmed in scripture:  “When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church” (I Corinthians 14:26 NIV)

The Band:img_0022_ghorvei
The band is led by Greg McCausland accompanied by musicians and singers from within the church.  Greg is led by the Holy Spirit to make songs fitting to the weekly sermon and that focus our hearts and minds on the Lord, connect us to God or call us to action.  Music is contemporary with songs from the past twenty years, as written by well known worship leaders and our own Greg McCausland.

The Choir:

12. B - LPBC Candlelight ServiceThe large choir is directed by Conrad Gold, our accompanist on the organ and piano also.  The repertoire of the choir features music that spans 10 centuries, from medieval plainsong to Mozart to contemporary Christian choral music.  Beloved hymns express the meaning of scripture and the sermon. Music must enhance the Liturgy and the preaching of the Word, yet not compete for
attention. Music has been called the handmaid of liturgy, an attitude shared as we prepare our service music. We seek to glorify God in our work and strive for excellence in our presentation.

12. B - LPBC Candlelight ServiceIn Psalm 33, the psalmist starts with these words:

“Sing Joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him. Praise the Lord with the harp, make music to Him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to Him a new song, play skilfully, and shout for joy.”

Bells of Praise:

1. D - Ladies RetreatThe Bells of Praise play both a three-octave set of Schulmerich hand bells and a three-octave set of hand chimes. We participate in the worship service on an occasional basis. We welcome new ringers – all you need is a love for teamwork and the ability to read music. Bells are a wonderful way to use your musical talents to praise the Lord. Download a sample performance of  My Fathers World by our Bells of Praise in Powerpoint format (it takes about 15 seconds for the music to start after the slideshow begins).
