What To Expect
When you come to worship with us...
We approach Sunday worship with great reverence and joy, believing that corporate worship is not just a place to be taught, pray, sing, and fellowship, but is the designated meeting place between God and his people. While God is omnipresent and can be worshipped anywhere, throughout scripture the place He chooses to meet with his people is considered holy ground (Ex 3:5; Josh 5:15; Is 6:1-5) and should be treated accordingly. Thus, when we enter the sanctuary on the Lord’s Day, we do not simply enter a building or an auditorium. Rather, we enter the inner sanctum, the very throne room of our God and King. Corporate worship is not primarily about us, about having our needs met. Corporate worship is about the worship of God. For this reason, we practice a Christocentric approach to worship. Everything we do in corporate worship is designed to point toward and exalt the glory of Christ. From the prayers to the scripture readings to the songs to the message to the Lord’s Supper, it is all intended to magnify the person and work of Jesus Christ. This conviction limits what we do in corporate worship to that which God has prescribed in his Word. Corporate worship is not about what we want—but about what God commands (Deut 12:29-32; 1 Cor 4:6).
Our worship service is designed to reflect God's saving work of redemption. The service begins with a Call to Worship just as our salvation began with God's sovereign call to worship Him. The Reading of the Law reminds us of God’s holy standard and that He uses the Law to drive us to Christ. The Assurance of Pardon reminds us that despite our sinfulness, God's grace is greater still. The Corporate Prayer and Corporate Reading of the Gospel Story remind us we are not called to walk alone but are each a member of Christ’s body and collectively we stand in the stream of redemptive history. Our Response through Song reminds us that a life of worship is the natural response of a redeemed people. The Message from God's Word points us to Christ and reminds us that all of scripture is about Him. The climax is the Lord's Supper which reminds us of Christ's sacrifice for us and that through the sacrament we sup with Christ in a spiritual, yet real sense. The Benediction encourages God's people that as they depart back into the world, they go with His blessing and protection. The service ends with a Departing Song to remind us that worship does not end here, but that all of life is to be lived out in worship to God.
Christ-centered worship is extremely important to us, and we approach it with great seriousness, earnestness, and expectancy. We communicate this to our children by welcoming them into the most central, regular, valuable, and corporate activity of the church. Beginning at age 4, we encourage parents to bring their children into the worship service. If you need to leave the service with your children, we offer additional seating, a live stream video, and diaper changing station in an overflow room, located in the second room on the left.
We meet at 301 W. Avenue F, Belton, Texas 76513. Our mailing address is Tapestry Community Church, PO Box 826, Belton, TX 76513.
At Tapestry Community Church our worship service looks and feels a bit different than what many expect. We strive to be reverent, biblical, and God-honoring. This video offers a brief but good explanation as to why we do church worship the way we do.
