Our Philosophy of Corporate Worship
Our highest aim at Uptown Church during our Sunday morning worship service is to bring glory and honor to our great God and King by worshiping Him in spirit and in truth. We seek to do this through songs of praise, hymns of tradition, confessions, the reading of Scripture, traditional creeds and prayers passed down by faithful fathers of the reformed faith and most importantly – the preached Word of God. The sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper are a vital part of worship here at Uptown Church and we celebrate each once a month.
Our Belief About Worship
God calls us to a lifestyle of worship. We should live each moment of every day unto our Lord. He calls us to worship Him through being a transforming community, loving witness and helping neighbor.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” ~ Psalm 1:1-2.
“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
The Sunday Morning Service is a vital element of worship for the Uptown community. During this time of worship, we seek to devote ourselves “to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts 2:42)
“not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” ~ Hebrews 10:25
Our Style of Worship
The musical style of Uptown is contemporary but also draws from the influence of traditional hymnody. We value new melodies and contemporary texts, but we also cherish the richness and depth of traditional hymns that have stood the test of time.
Our Teams for Worship
We have many dedicated volunteers who are involved on Sunday mornings. The following is a list of the possible opportunities to serve the Lord and Uptown Church through the Worship Ministry.
