God's World in Community: Worship Words
Worship is the religious practice in which we acknowledge God’s presence and humble ourselves before God through adoration and respect. The components of worship included in God's World in Community: Worship Words are praising, praying, singing, thanksgiving, preaching, offering, and serving. Understanding and practicing these elements of worship helps us to better engage in worship and experience worship more fully.
