What to Expect

“Newness” can potentially be an uncomfortable experience for first time guests. To help minimize this tendency, the following  components will provide a feel of our congregational rhythm during a Lord’s Day Celebration. The mild structure is shaped by converging historic liturgy with contemporary expression. This paradigm enables us to maintain forward relevance with the richness of ancient Christian roots.

sfw2-wo502        Invocation……………….………………………………………………..We Pray Come Lord Jesus                                       
        Affirmation…………………………………………………………………We Declare Our Faith    
       Celebration………………………………………………………………….We Express Worshipful Praise    
       Reformation………………………………………………………………..We Confess Sin And Pardon
       Memorialization………………………………………………………….We Gospelize The Lord’s Table
       Adoration…………….………………………………………………………We Enjoy  Special Ministry In Song

  In a region resource rich with diverse church models, “The Life’s” uniqueness is that we are converging the core strengths of these three historical movements into the corporate identity of a single congregation.
