Three basic rhythms characterize our gathered worship: Praise, Renewal, and Response. These rhythms are present in all our services, and they should also characterize the rest of our lives. In this way, our worship services also train and shape us as Christians. 


The best way to get a sense of gathered worship at New City is to join us on Sundays at 10:00am. God promises to meet us there, feed us with His Word and at His Table, fill us with His Spirit, and empower us to love and serve our neighbors.
COVID-19 Update: As we gather together for worship, we will be following social distancing guidelines. We are asking that everyone in attendance wear a mask (except children 2 years and under). If you don’t have a mask, we’ll have one you can use. For now we will not be providing nursery or children’s worship.

We're also limiting the time we're gathered together: whereas our normal gathering would include an equipping hour (Sunday school classes for kids and adults) followed by a 90 minute worship service followed by a meal together, during this pandemic, we're only meeting for worship, and we've shortened the service to less than an hour. 

We will still be streaming the service live via Zoom for those who don’t yet feel comfortable attending or those who cannot attend due to health concerns. Please email us at info@newcitysouthbend.com for the link.

Praise

God calls us to worship Him by His Word. So we read some Scripture where God invites us into His presence, and sing several songs that focus on who God is and what He has done.

Renewal

When we encounter God in His glory and holiness, it’s exciting, but it’s also sobering. We become aware of our faults, sins, and brokenness. The grace of the gospel gives us freedom to fully own our sin, confess it in prayer, and receive assurance of God’s pardon. We then receive God’s Word as it’s preached and then applied by the Spirit.

Response

Having heard the Word preached, we respond by celebrating Communion together, declaring our unity in Christ and with the rest of the Church, singing and praying, sacrificially giving of our finances, and then receiving God’s Word of blessing and benediction.
