A COVENANT OF THE BODY OF CHRIST AT
In a holy act of faith in, and gratitude to, God our Father for our salvation in Jesus Christ, and a sincere will to fully obey our Lord according to his Word as we are enabled by His Holy Spirit:
We covenant before God to love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ in harmony with one another.
We covenant to pray for one another asking God to bless the personal life and family of each of our sisters and brothers at PaLO VErde Church of Christ and to empower the ministry of each individual.
We covenant to employ our energies, time, and resources to be effective witnesses of our Lord by encouraging and building up our sisters and brothers at PaLO VErde Church, thus building up the entire Body of Christ.
We covenant to honor the life and ministry of our fellow family members at PaLO VErde. Being filled with the Spirit of God’s love we will rejoice in what is good, honorable, and uplifting for all.
Together in Christ we will grow in effective service in God’s kingdom to reach all people for Jesus Christ our Lord.
Worship is a word that is simple in definition but deep in meaning. Simply put, it is to express a deep and thankful love. When Jesus was asked what was most important He replied with a two part answer. The first part was to Love God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength. Worship is part of that expression of Love.
Worship is also personal. It is not something that someone else can do for you. You can do it anywhere, with others or alone. On Sunday we come together as a family and worship God as a community. You are an important part of that community. When we pray, you will be asked to join us in prayer. When we sing you will want to offer your own voice to God. When scripture is read, you will be encouraged to read along in your own Bible or from the projected text on the screen.
Worship is also meant to be an encouragement to you and to others around you. Worship is joyful! We are told to "Rejoice in the Lord always!" This was written by the Apostle Paul while in prison! Life can be very hard sometimes. Worship is one of the ways that you get close to God and let Him bring joy into your life.
