Jesus preached a message that is recorded for us in Matthew 5, 6 and 7 and is called the Sermon on the Mount. It is called this because Jesus “went up on a mountain” (Matthew 5:1) to deliver this message. Which apparently he did in order to make it easier for his audience to hear. Christ’s Sermon on the Mount is also found in Luke 6:20-49, though a more abbreviated form. There are slight differences between the two Gospel accounts, but the words provide a thorough overview of the key subjects Jesus addressed during His earthly ministry. According to John R.W. Stott, “The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best-known part of the teaching of Jesus, though arguably it is the least understood, and certainly it is the least obeyed.”
Our traditional service offers plenty of variety—the best of contemporary and traditional music (we still sing hymns!), visual arts, and drama. This service is led by a 70-voice worship choir and vocal teams. Instruments you will hear lifted in praise include organ, piano, brass, and strings. The message is the same Biblical, practical message as is given in contemporary service, and regular attenders tend to get a little gussied up for this service. But casual works too!
