Sunday Worship

"Corporate worship is a regular, gracious reminder that it's not about you. You've been born into a life that is a celebration of another." 

- Paul David Tripp

Sunday Worship at North Clay

We are meeting in person for our Sunday Worship service at 10:45am. We are also livestreaming our Sunday Worship service on Facebook Live in order to accommodate those who may be providentially hindered from gathering with us. 

Order of Worship

The order of worship, or liturgy, is a structure or framework used to order the corporate worship of the church. We believe that when it comes to liturgy, it is not a question of whether  the church will have a liturgy, but rather a question of which liturgy the church have.  Because of this, we believe that the order of our worship is not something we can be flippant or thoughtless about. 

The Order of Worship of North Clay:

  • Call to Worship
  • Congregational Singing of the Doxology
  • Responsive Scripture Reading
  • Pastoral Prayer
  • Congregational Singing
  • Sermon
  • Congregational Singing
  • Benediction

While Scripture does not give a definitive order of worship, or liturgy for the church, we believe that Scripture provides the foundation for how we ought to structure and conduct our worship in the church. In light of that, North Clay Baptist Church seeks to be always, intentionally reforming our liturgy so as to continually align ourselves with God's Word. 

Theology of Corporate Worship

Corporate worship is not an isolated event that takes place for 1-2 hours once a week. Rather, it flows out of a life marked by worship. We at North Clay believe that the Christian life is to characterized by the worship of the Triune God of Scripture. That life of worship then culminates in the gathered body of Christ worshipping Him in one voice. Corporate worship is first and foremost about the worship of God, and is secondarily about the building up of His church. This flows directly from the commands to love God and love neighbor (reference).
