Worship is tremendously important to us at Southern Gables Church. One of the central purposes of the church is to gather together with other believers to give honor to God. Our prayer is that our worship will always be directed toward our Lord.
The music at Southern Gables is a contemporary worship style because we desire for truth to be made accessible to the people of our present culture. We desire to respect and learn from our tradition and to incorporate aspects of our heritage into our worship of God, while carefully avoiding traditionalism and meaningless habits. To this end, we will strive to use the best that the historical and contemporary church has to offer. Therefore, we use modern worship songs supplemented by older hymns, which are often updated musically. Other more traditional liturgical elements such as creeds and responsive readings are occasionally incorporated. These elements, when utilized, are often recast in a contemporary style. Our desire is that all of these elements—song, prayer, Scripture, creeds, sermon, Lord’s Supper—coalesce to retell the story of the Gospel from creation to new creation.
