Applause in Worship

All elements of our worship service are for the glory of God and are not intended or desired to be a performance. If you are moved to give thanks to God for anything offered in worship by putting your hands together or by saying “Amen!” in praise, then please feel free to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord!”

However, applause for a “performance” or “performer” is not necessary or desired in the worship setting, because those who offer their gifts do so to the glory of God and not their own.

Please do not feel obligated in any way to respond with anything other than joy in your heart for all of God’s blessings!
