Format of Worship
We follow a historic Reformation liturgy which includes prayer, the singing of Psalms, the reading of Scripture, preaching, and in the morning service, the Lord’s Supper as seen in this sample bulletin.
Our praise of God follows a 3000 year old biblical tradition. We sing the Psalms of the Bible with the accompaniment of our hearts and voices (a cappella = chapel style).
Children in Worship
We believe that the children of believers are part of the church. We teach our children about worship and they are welcome to stay with you through the entire service.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper monthly (usually on the 2nd Lord’s Day of the month).
We are not casual about this observance. Rather, we look upon this remembrance of our Lord’s death as a holy and precious experience! The Scripture promises rich blessing to those who approach it rightly (1 Cor. 10:16-17), and warns of spiritual harm to those who don’t (1 Cor. 11:27-30).
Because of this instruction in God’s Word, and for the good of everyone concerned, our church asks that all who wish to participate in the receiving of the bread and the cup, first meet with our Elders (the Session) to make a profession of their personal faith in Jesus Christ, describe their relationship to a true branch of Christ’s Church, and discuss the meaning of this Sacrament.
If you have not yet met with the Session, please know that you are welcome to worship with us, but we ask that you do not partake of the bread and cup until you are known and approved by the Session.
