Worship Ministry at Atonement

Psalm 150 Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty firmament! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his surpassing greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with clanging cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that breathes praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Giving honor and glory to God is our joyful duty as Christians. Following Christ’s example, praising, thanking, serving, praying, evangelizing, healing and helping, is our highest form of worship.
