11:00 AM Contemporary Worship
Sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth! — Psalm 96:1
Interestingly the largest book in the Bible, the Book of Psalms, is actually a song book! The Book of Psalms gives us magnificent, inspired lyrics. It does not give us any tunes or melodies. Each generation of God's people, then, must craft a musical style through which they will worship Him. In a context of prayer, music, and spoken word Contemporary Worship at Lakeside employs a modern voice to tell ancient Truths.
The Scriptures provide a sure foundation upon which all worship experiences at Lakeside are built. Every worship experience has two primary goals:
- To glorify God (Psalm 150)
- To build up and encourage His people (Colossians 3:16)
Worship and service are inextricably linked in the Scriptures. We are invited to present ourselves as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1-2). In a spirit of freedom, worship experiences at Lakeside will engage the mind and heart.
Even a casual glance at a coral reef or a summer sunset reveals a God of incomparable, kalaedoscopic artistry. Because we are made in God's image, every worship experience at Lakeside draws upon our God-given imagination and creativity.
