Worship: “How do Christians Worship?”

This is our fifth and final installment in a series on “worship.” Previous posts answer: Who do Christians worship?, Why do Christians worship?, When do Christians worship?, and Where do Christians worship?

Worship: “Where do Christians Worship?”

This is part four in a series on “worship.” Previous posts answer: Who do Christians worship?, Why do Christians worship?, and When do Christians worship?
