Worship at Arlington Woods:
“Worship, whether corporate or individual* is the practice of regularly seeking to bring the complete focus of our being on God. It is the discipline of returning to the true centre of our individual and corporate existence as God’s people.
The pressures of life and the assaults of the fallen world constantly blur our focus and tend to shift us away from our centre in God. Worship is the means by which we recover our focus and return to our centre.
The quality and consistency of our worship will determine how well we are able to live Christ-centered lives in the world.”
-Robert Mulholland, Invitation to a Journey, p.135
*We need to be fully engaging in both individual and corporate worship, in order for the other to be meaningful. Individual worship is grounded and enlivened by corporate worship, and corporate worship can awaken and does give context to individual worship. The Lord’s Prayer begins with a reminder that prayer should also be corporate, “our Father” not “my Father”. In fact, the Bible does not offer two categories of worship – it is always both corporate and individual.
How can you get involved?
Production Teams: We are always looking for individuals with a good ear for sound or eye for video. These teams rehearse on Thursday nights with the music teams as well as Sunday mornings.
Music Teams: Have you been gifted to sing or play an instrument? Our teams practice on Thursday nights and meet on Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. to prepare for the service.
Hospitality Teams: Are you naturally friendly and helpful? Our Hospitality Team greets people at the door or in the lobby. They assist anyone with questions at the Welcome Centre, or, they are available during the service to help in the sanctuary. These individuals arrive at 9:20 a.m.
