Join us tonight at 7:00 pm at The Grace Place Church as we kick off our new Bible Study titled, “Gospel Shaped Worship”. Pizza will be served!!
Christians are people who have discovered that the one true object of our worship is the God who has revealed himself in and through Jesus Christ. For most believers, worship is what happens for an hour on Sunday morning as we sing and pray together. But the Bible reveals a much bigger vision for what worship really is and how is should shape our lives.
So what exactly is worship? What should we be doing when we meet together for “church” on Sundays? And how does that connect with what we do the rest of the week? As we search the Scriptures together we will discover that true worship is more than this – it is to encompass the whole of life! This engaging and flexible resource will challenge us to worship God every day of the week, with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength.
Jared C. Wilson is Director of Communications at Midwestern Seminary and College in Kansas City. He was formerly the pastor of Middletown Church in Middletown Springs, Vermont. He is the author of more than 10 books and he blogs at thegospeldrivenchurch. Jared met his wife Becky at high school, and the couple have two middle-school-aged daughters, Maisy and Grace.
Raised in Texas, Jared grew up being taught the Scriptures as part of the church. But it wasn’t until he was about 12 years old that he started to come to grips with what it really means to be a Christian. At a time when he was feeling hopeless, inadequate and fearful, his mother gently and simply led him into prayer to ask Jesus to help him, to forgive his sin and to be Lord of his life.
Jared was still a young teenager when he first felt God calling him to full-time gospel ministry. While at a youth camp, he felt stirred as he read the story of God speaking to Moses from the burning bush. As a young man Jared was discipled by a number of pastors who showed him what it really means to shepherd the people of God.
Jared’s years of ministry experience in the time since have helped to inform Gospel Shaped Worship, which reflects his passionate belief that the gospel should be at the center of all that a church does.
We look forward to beginning this new study and pray that you will join us tonight and take an active part in this exploration of true worship.
Our doors are open to all to share Christ’s message!
