Sundays at Emmaus
Gathered worship refers to our weekly corporate worship gathering on Sunday mornings. We believe in the power of the corporate gathering. We believe there are unique and significant ways in which our affections can be stirred and God’s glory beheld when believers gather to remember and celebrate what God is doing and has done (Psalm 63:2). Faithful preaching of the Scriptures, joyful observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s supper, rich Gospel-centered singing, and times of prayer and confession are aspects of Gathered Worship at Emmaus Church. Each of these aspects are means to help us magnify and treasure Christ above all.
What to Expect
Expect a diverse crowd of people united under the Gospel. The family at Emmaus Church is made up of people from all generations, socio-economic classes, ethnicities, and stages of spiritual maturity.
Expect people’s attire to be rather casual. Suits and ties are welcome, as are T-shirts and jeans.
Expect some noise. We encourage parents to bring their children into the service to learn and participate in our family (read more). Naturally, this creates a bit of noise on occasion.
At Emmaus Church, we sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. The musical style of the worship may vary from week to week, but we will always focus our hearts on lyrics that magnify the greatness of God through music. We believe that music has the ability to stir up God-glorifying emotion in our hearts, and provides a means to express it. Music also helps us remember truths about God as we sing His promises week after week. By singing together, we express our unity in the Gospel (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). We do all of this as we sing a variety of ancient and modern choruses, hymns, and psalms.
