    Liturgy of Song

    Liturgy of Song

    Today, we start a new series as we seek to gain a better understanding of worship. Worship is more than just singing on Sunday mornings, and the way we worship forms us and shapes us. If we want to be more like Jesus, we need to understand not only why we worship, but how we worship.







    Today, we explore a term that many of you may not be familiar with. Liturgies are the things we do over and over that form us into a certain type of person. Why do we sing in church? And how does singing form us into the type of people that live like Jesus? Today, we find the answers as we explore what the Bible teaches about worship.







    Sermon Notes:







    Why is singing songs in church important?









    * Colossians 3:16 NASB2020







    * 1 Corinthians 14:6-7 NASB2020









    What makes a worship song biblical and beneficial for congregational worship? How do the Psalms guide us in our singing?









    * Psalm 96:1-12 NIV







    * Psalm 38:1-22 NIV









    What Purpose Do Our Bodies Serve? The songs that we sing form us into a type of people If we engage our bodies in worship, then it will forms us into a type of people and teaches us what our bodies are for.









    * Romans 12:1 ESV

    Keeping Our Passion

    Keeping Our Passion

    Today, we wrap up our sermon series on the first three chapters of the mysterious book of the Bible, Revelation. Revelation is a letter addressed not to an individual but to seven church communities. Each letter first tells the church who Jesus is and how the hearers should live in light of that identity. The messages to the seven churches remain crucial and relevant for us today, and there is something we can learn from each church.







    Today, we followup our message last week on what we would want Christ to share with our church. Moving forward as a church means that we continue to stay close to Jesus so we don’t lose our passion. Romans 12 is an incredible chapter that reminds us how we can retain our passion and zeal for the Lord.







    Sermon Notes:







    Recap from Last Week What would we want to hear from God?







    I know your love for GodI know your love for each otherI know your love for your community







    But one word of caution: don’t lose your passion

    * Galatians 6:9-10 MSG

    What do we want Jesus to say to Cornerstone?

    What do we want Jesus to say to Cornerstone?

    It’s a special weekend for Cornerstone! Today, we celebrate our 20 year anniversary as a church. In June of 2004, Cornerstone held its first service in Felts Park. Today, we are having one combined worship service in Felts Park at 11am. For our online viewers, we have filmed a special message today. We have been in a sermon series on the first three chapters of the mysterious book of the Bible, Revelation. Revelation is a letter addressed not to an individual but to seven church communities. Each letter first tells the church who Jesus is and how the hearers should live in light of that identity. The messages to the seven churches remain crucial and relevant for us today, and there is something we can learn from each church.







    But what would Jesus say to us today at Cornerstone? While we don’t presume to speak for Jesus, there are things that we would like to hear. Today, we look back at how God has moved and worked through our church, and we look forward to the future.

    Laodicea: The church that didn’t need God

    Laodicea: The church that didn’t need God

    Today, we continue our new sermon series on the first three chapters of the mysterious book of the Bible, Revelation. Revelation is a letter addressed not to an individual but to seven church communities. Each letter first tells the church who Jesus is and how the hearers should live in light of that identity. The messages to the seven churches remain crucial and relevant for us today, and there is something we can learn from each church.







    Today, as we continue our journey through the Book of Revelation, our focus is on the letter to the church at Laodicea, a church that believed it needed nothing yet was profoundly lacking in the most essential relationship of all. This sermon will challenge us to reflect on our spiritual complacency and awaken a renewed sense of dependency on God’s grace and presence in our lives. Let us open our hearts to the lessons from Laodicea and seek a deeper, more authentic connection with our Creator.
