Worship is what we were created for.

Why does the Lord invite us into a place of worship? The Lord, in ​H​is mercy, designed it for us to find our fullest expression in life standing before ​H​im accepted, delighted in, and ministering unto Him in thanksgiving and praise. God always chooses the best. If God, in loving us, chooses to design us as worshippers, then what’s the point? You always become like what you worship. There’s nothing ​H​e could want more for us than for us to become like Him. With that in mind, He designed us to be worshippers.

As a church, our entire ministry grew out of that priority. Most everything we’ve ever learned, we’ve learned as worshipers. At Russellville FUMC, worship is the cornerstone of our celebration in a life with Jesus Christ.
