Empowered to Worship

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Romans 12:1

WorshipEvery Sunday morning at around 10:00 am the people of RCF come together to share music, prayer, reading, preaching, and teaching from the Scriptures, and take the time to give God honor, glory, and credit for the things He is doing in us and for us.
We call this a worship service, but in this we recognize that spiritual songs, hymns, good sermons, and spending Sunday morning together doesn’t mean “worship”. Worship is often found happening in our Sunday morning gatherings, but it also can be found happening as each of us go to work, prepare dinner for the kids, demonstrate grace and love with a frustrated neighbor, or buy lunch and and lend an ear to a hungry stranger.

At RCF we encourage everyone to be a continuous source of worship:

Worship as Praise and the continual demonstration and recognition that God is worthy of our praise.

Worship as Sacrifice in the giving of our time, talents and treasure for the purpose of sharing the Kingdom of God with the people of the Kennebec Valley and beyond.

Worship as Proclamation in our confession of what the Lord has done and is doing in our lives, through our words and deeds to the people around us.

Worship as Submission to the Lord and His authority, to the godly authority placed over us, and to our part of the mission God has for RCF.

 Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with grief, for this would be unprofitable for you.

– Hebrews 13:15-17
