The aim is not to be worship leaders, but to be worshipers!
What is Worship at FLCC?
At Free Life Community Church, worship is freely given, pure, and vulnerable. We pray
that our worship presents an individual, corporate, and raw expression of God’s love. Our goal is to push Satan out, and fill our church with a Spirit-filled, interactive environment. We pray that God takes our beautifully broken lives, and through His Spirit, fuses our hearts and minds together in complete unity. Worship is a blessing designed to praise the Lord! Please come and be completely consumed with us!
Hi, I'm Frank!
As I've grown in my faith, I’ve learned that there’s only one thing I can give to God that requires nothing of Him, and that’s praising Him.
Psalm 150:6 says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”
When I’m worshiping God through music I can praise God and I don’t have to
ask anything of Him in order to do it. I love being in that atmosphere. I like the purity of praise. Praise is giving back to God!
Hi, I'm Jess!
To me, worship is an outward expression of what’s going on inside. In worship, and particularly in music, I can forget that there are other people around me. Nothing else matters in those moments, nothing else is happening. In those moments of worship, I revel in the presence of God, and it doesn’t matter who is watching or what else is going on around me. I’m in the presence of the Lord, worshiping Him, and that’s all that matters! It reminds me of when King David “danced before the Lord with all his might” (2 Samuel 6:14) upon the return of the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem. Despite the strong objections of others, the King humbly abandoned his royal garments for simple attire on that day of rejoicing, as he led the procession of the ark into the city, worshiping the Lord in ecstatic joy. Undeterred by the criticism of onlookers, King David continued leaping and dancing before the Lord, telling his wife, “I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.” (2 Samuel 6:21-22) I can easily relate to David’s exuberant worship of God, as I also become consumed with expressing my adoration of God in worship, without concern that others are watching.
Hi, I'm Kate!
When I think about worship, I stay conscious that it isn’t just music. I think of it as a way for the intellectual and emotional parts of my faith to collide and come full circle before God. When you’re only functioning out of one or the other, it’s incomplete, but when the heart and mind come together in worship, it’s brought before the Lord as a full circle. Worshiping in that complete manner humbles me
in a way that separates me from myself and allows me to be vulnerable, as we were meant to be when we were created. This openness to vulnerability in worship is easily seen in revivals and in corporate worship – experiencing the power of worshiping in one accord. I want to experience that within our own congregation, every Sunday!
Hi, I'm Michelle!
Music connects us to God in a unique way, allowing a part of our hearts to interact with God in a way that’s different from when we hear the spoken word, especially when we sing together as a congregation. When we worship together in song, as a collective body in Christ, something deep in our soul awakens, connecting us to each other and to God in a profound and meaningful way. Music adds immeasurably to the power of scripture and preaching, prayer and sacrament. It’s truly a gift from God, and I’m so blessed to be able to play a role in that for our church.
