Worship: What Is It & How To Do It?
Led by Dr. Brad Strawn and Dr. Joe Watkins | Reed Hall, Room 249
This class will present a theological understanding of Christian worship. We will attempt to answer these questions: what is worship, what is it for, how do we engage in it, what does it have to do with the church and the world, what are the practices and the disciplines, and how do we prepare our hearts for it? The class will coincide with the preaching series on worship, providing an opportunity to dig deeper into the preaching moment. And yes, we will worship in class!
