Worship is not the slow song that the choir sings. Worship is not the amount you place in the offering basket. Worship is not volunteering in children’s church. Yes, these may be acts or expressions of worship, but they do not define what true worship really is. There are numerous definitions of the word worship. Yet, one in particular encapsulates the priority we should give to worship as a spiritual discipline: Worship is to honor with extravagant love and extreme submission (Webster’s Dictionary,1828).

At Metropolitan Community Church of the Rockies we believe that worship is the place we come together to learn how to recognize God at work in the world. Diverse arrays of people lead worship, representing the whole community. After singing the music, hearing the message and sharing communion, we leave worship renewed and challenged to be our authentic selves and make a difference in the world.
