We are called to do everything to the glory of God.
We worship not only through singing, but through preaching, praying, teaching, and celebrating communion and baptism.
Here at COV, we offer two service times:
Hymns, a pipe organ, piano or acoustic guitar- our 9AM service is a bit more on the traditional side. But we also try new stuff too!
Some Sundays it’s an acoustic set, others it’s drums and electric guitar. We tend to sing more current songs, but don’t be surprised if we re-style an old hymn or sing out a new song in the Spirit. We are casual and like to think of our worship time as people gathered together in a big “family room” (with pews).
We value participation.
We want to worship with you, not worship at you. This means we will trade in trendiness for accessibility. We’ve got some amazing talent on our teams, but if people in the congregation are observing more than they are singing, we’ve missed the mark. So we do our best to evaluate our songs through that lens and select songs that are accessible.
We make room for the Holy Spirit to lead.
We pray, plan, and prepare as service leaders. But then, we hold that plan with open hands. This means sometimes we’ll call audibles on a Sunday morning if the Spirit is leading us. Don’t get us wrong, we value order in a worship gathering. We just know it’s too easy to become dependent on a man-made formula, so we are continually stepping out in faith to avoid that.
Biblical and Jesus-focused
We understand that next to the sermon, the music we sing is the next most influential part of our gatherings. Because of that, we take the lyrics we sing seriously. We evaluate our songs through the lens of Scripture, and if they’re off we won’t sing them. We won’t always get it perfect, but we will be continually pursuing what it looks like to worship the Lord both in Spirit and in Truth.
