Event Details

What is Service Worship?

"Service worship" is an emerging movement among Christ-centered churches that says that worship needs to happen not just in our sanctuary, but out in the community. It is achieved through acts of service to people in need.

More and more churches are scheduling periodic congregation-wide service days - either in addition to their normal Sunday morning worship services, or instead of them. The congregation is called out to serve in work projects that make a tangible difference in the lives of people in the community.

Through these service days, the church follows Christ's instruction to serve others and it challenges societal perceptions of the church in the world. it often yields in individuals a new sense of their own personal purposes in mission and service.

West Valley Presbyterian Church

West Valley Presbyterian Church is a diverse community in the heart of Silicon Valley (Cupertino, CA) centered on the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ. We are people who find ourselves touched, blessed, healed, and transformed by Jesus. We believe that Jesus’ life, teaching, and grace hold the answers for our lives, and for the whole world. That is why we are passionate about our mission – to know Christ and make Christ known. We are committed to practically sharing the love of Christ in tangible ways with everyone in our community, especially those who are hurting, hungry, poor, or in need. Our goal is to be an authentic community of faith, hope, and love that truly blesses our community. We invite everyone to join us for our worship celebration on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. These gatherings are a great opportunity to get to know more about Jesus and experience the fulfillment of the deepest longings of the human heart. This is the blessing of the love of God through Jesus, and we invite all to join with us!
