Worship & Celebration

"But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him." (John 4:23)

In an age where "Praise & Worship" is practically a commercial music subgenre, the cultural clutter that goes along with popularity can easily obscure what it means to be a true worshiper. This lesson will help you consider more carefully what worship is and what it is not. And it will help you understand some deeper rhythms of worship and encourage you to enter them.
