M&M Worship: Meaningful and Memorable Worship
At Light of Hope Presbyterian Church we have been coached by The Worship Desing Studio and Dr. Marcia McFee. Therefore, practice what is now called Immersion or Experiential worship; a highly intentional and artistic blended worship including traditional, contemporary and multicultural elements of worship. Our worship design team prepares elements of worship along with the pastor and music director worship in the areas of verbal arts, dramatic arts, media arts, visual arts and musical arts. All elements are woven into an M&M worship experience.
Creative and Innovative Worship
Creativity and Innovation in worship allows for the inclusion of traditional, contemporary and multicultural elements to the worship experience. Creativity in worship welcomes all kind of individuals to participate in the design, planning and implementation of worship services. God has given the Reformed family of churches great toys to play in worship. Why limit ourselves?
Too many worship experiences are passive; meaning very little interaction is required by the participant except to listen. In M&M worship many times the application of the sermon is an interactive element. Interactions with symbols, metaphors and with one another opens a new dimension to worship and it becomes a community experience.
Symbolically Provocative Worship
Human beings respond deeply to symbols. Using symbols in an intentional manners and including them in the teaching as well as in the singing will create responses. In the picture above, notice how a water feature illustrates the flow of the Spirit (water) through all kinds of different individuals, illustrated by the variety of vessels.
