Hearts to worship Jesus
Note from Pastor Kristi Graner
“But a time is coming, and even now has arrived, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.” – Jesus in John 4:23
At Dare to Believe Ministries, we value our time of worship together as a community. We regularly gather for a special time of worship on the 4th Thursday of each month from January – October every year.
We recognize that you all spend time in worship privately and at your church, and in addition to that we would love to invite you to gather with our DTB community this coming October 26. It will be our last worship night of the year and we’d love to have you join us.
We invite friends who are gifted worship leaders to come and lead us just a bit deeper in worship as we seek the Lord through singing, prophecy, painting, dance, and more.
Together we are learning more about what it looks like for each of us to individually respond to our Creator through creativity. We have been partnering with Streams Creative House to learn more about the tabernacle model of worship and how we can enter into the Holy Place in worship by giving each person permission to worship as the Lord leads, without pressure to perform or look any certain way.
Our vision is to provide a safe, comfortable and powerful worship experience each month where you can come and worship the way you choose.
Worship is a powerful kingdom tool.
Jesus talked about the power of worship in John 4:23 (mentioned above).
I also think it is fascinating that when Moses and Aaron were “negotiating” with Pharaoh to release God’s people from bondage in Egypt, the topic of worship came up repeatedly. God’s people wanted to be free to worship!
When we read this story in Exodus 8-12, the word used repeatedly as the reason God’s people were to be freed is so that they could ‘abad’ the Lord. Abad is a Hebrew word that can be translated both as “serve” and “worship.” Part of the Exodus story is that God’s people were being freed to worship their God!
Pharaoh sinned because he wouldn’t release God’s people to worship the Lord. In Egypt, the Israelites were not free to worship as the Lord directed them. If they did, the Egyptians would stone them. The Israelites understandably wanted to go out where it was safe to worship authentically.
At Dare to Believe Ministries we endeavor to learn how to partner more effectively with heaven as we worship.
Worshipping the Lord in Spirit and Truth is a freedom we have. In the United States we are blessed to be allowed to worship freely. Let’s make the most of this privilege.
Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month (except November and December). We look forward to seeing you and worshipping Jesus with you!
“It is in the process of being worshipped that God communicates His presence to men.” – C.S. Lewis
