Our Life Together

Worship Experience

Our worship experience is spirit-led with a high level of audience participation. It is incredibly honest with personal testimonies and witnesses as voiced prayer requests and extended stewardship. These stories and gifts shared by the Sojourners enrich the worship experience for all involved.

The offering begins with an invitation to give yourself to God and resembles an old fashioned altar call. Individuals often come to the altar to pray while the ushers receive instructions for collecting the morning offering of gifts and tithes. During the offertory the pastor counsels those kneeling around the altar. At the same time that the ushers are collecting the offering, individuals are coming forward to put their ‘junk’ in the “Jesus Jar” redeeming the trash with their love. This is an effort to involve everyone in the offering regardless of their financial ability. Everyone can care enough to stoop over and pick up a nail or screw from the street to make the city a safer place, make the neighborhood more beautiful and bring it to the church to make an offering to God. Everyone can participate, everyone can be involved in this offering, and it only requires caring.
