What it is to worship.

When we gather in worship… regardless of the service’s musical style: organ and choir, jazz trio or rock band…we encounter God in a way that we cannot by ourselves. We gather in response to the Holy Spirit’s invitation. Worship is about giving praise, thanksgiving, and adoration to God so that we are empowered to love and care for the world. When we worship as a community we gather together to hear God’s Word, share in Holy Communion in order to be sent out to serve.

Through worship, we celebrate those things which bind us together: prayers for our common needs, song that lifts our spirits and a relationship with each other that is grounded in God’s great love for us.

Celebration’s Worship

At Celebration Church we worship in the most authentic and natural way through using the fullest expression of the surrounding culture.  We believe that worship is about gathering together, as individuals AND as a commuity, to be strengthened and sent out to do God’s work in the world.  We find God’s presence primarily, but not exclusively, through hearing a message and participating in the sacraments of Holy Communion and Holy Baptism.  Although worship is centered on these elements, we also use music and liturgy to help us express praise and thanksgiving to God.  Think of this way, have you ever been at a loss of words when talking to someone?  We use music and liturgy as words from God to worship God.  Still interested?  Come and see for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Celebration's worship traditional or contemporary?

    Celebration’s worship is a hybrid between traditional and contemporary.  We use every resources available to help us express praise and thanksgiving to God in order to be strengthened and sent out to God’s work.  Like all worship styles, we are not isolated to this time and place.  We incorporate our current langage with some traditions that have been passed down through the ages.  So, some of it might be new and some of it might be familiar.  Whether you’ve worshiped at other Lutheran, Protestant, Catholic, or non-denominational church, or if you’ve never been a part of a worshiping community, we do our best to include and guide everyone.

  • What kind of music is played?

    We have a wonderful music director who selects a unique blend of music. Some of the music we use you would hear on the radio. While some of the other music is familiar hymns with a new twist!

  • Are children allowed at worship? What if they become restless?

    Absolutely! Children, youth, adults, and the elderly are invited to be a part of worship. We encourage you to start bringing your children from birth. If they become restless, don’t be embarrassed! We understand it could be difficult for a child to sit for an hour. Everyone, this means the pastor and congregation, will accommodate you. If you would like, we have quiet activities for them do at their seats. If that’s not enough, you are free to take them into the hallway, a classroom, or outside to calm them down. If you are in need of help, ask the ushers will assist you.

  • What should I wear?

    Many people aren’t sure what to wear when they visit Celebration. We want you to be comfortable when you visit, so wear what you’re comfortable wearing. When you’re at one of our services, you’ll see a range of styles from jeans to suits. Feel free to be casual or wear your “Sunday best”.

  • What is Holy Communion and who can participate?

    Holy Communion is a sacrament or a visible sign of God’s invisible grace. Through Holy Communion, we are nourished, empowered, and sent out to share God’s love. We believe the Holy Communion table is not Celebration’s table or a Lutheran’ table. We believe it is Christ’s table so all are invited.

  • What if I have other questions, especially during the service?

    We welcome any and all questions. Feel free to ask the pastor before or after the service. The pastor will do his best to direct you through worship so you don’t fee lost. If you have a question during the service, you are free to ask someone seated around you. If they don’t know, keep asking around until you find someone who does know the answer!
