Everything changed in a moment. When Jesus was born, He gave us the chance to be known, accepted, and forgiven. When we experience His love, we can't help but Come to Worship. This three-week series teaches different ways to worship God by looking deeper at what it truly means to lift your hands, pour out your heart, and bow before Him.

Psalm 142:5-6 (NIV)
