We tell our attenders, "Before you worship, worship!" Become a private as well as a public worshiper:

  • Meditate on Scripture the day before.
  • Spend time in prayer before the service.
  • Confess any sin that could hinder your fellowship with God.
  • Reflect on what you want to give thanks for.
  • Pray for our corporate worship each time you think of it.
  • Play a worship tape on the way to church.
