John Piper’s ministry at Desiring God has put on a small group study about Biblical corporate worship and put it in a very well-done DVD format. In the series of videos that are included, Piper outlines crucial Biblical truths about worship in a church and how to practically mold yourself (as part of the congregation) to view corporate worship in a God-honoring way.
Watch the Gravity and Gladness Series
I invite everyone in the church to attend the screenings of these sessions. If you plan on attending, please download and print out the study guide that goes along with it. I understand that not everyone will have the time to do the pre-work that comes with each session but from experience, I know that it provides a far more fruitful time when watching this DVD with fellow believers. The first session will be this Wednesday, January 26, 2011 starting at 7P at my house. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and get directions. Please check our events listing for subsequent screenings and their locations.
As a church we come together every Friday and Sunday to study the Word and sing songs together as a body. As a worship leader, I hope that we would come to a better understanding of why we do this together and find joy in that.
