  • Freedom to worship in varying ways something to be thankful for

    The dictionary tells us that worship is reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred.
    The Bible tells us worship means to “express praise and devotion.”
    For me personally, I love to worship God with music and sing praise songs.
    The Bible says this about worship; 1 Chronicles 16:29 NLT – “Give to the Lord the glory he deserves!
    Bring your offering and come into his presence.  
    Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.”
