Our service is centered on the preaching of God’s word. The service is filled with songs and prayer that praise God, remind us of our dependence on Him, and assure us of the hope we have in Christ. For a more detailed explanation of our worship, click here.
We sing a variety of Psalms and traditional hymns. Our singing is accompanied by an organ and occasionally other instruments. We also make use of the gifts of God’s people to assist us in worship with solos and our choir on occasion.
Communion is celebrated on the second Sunday of each month in the evening service. If you are visiting and would like to participate, we ask that you speak to an elder before the service. (See Communion Practice at Redeemer).
God ordained the Sabbath as a day of rest and worship. We gather together twice on Sunday to worship God for the great salvation we have in Christ and seek to rest in his complete salvation. We understand it might be a little strange and even counter cultural to gather together for worship twice on a Lord's Day, but apart from the fact that it has a long history and strong biblical warrant we see the necessity for God's people to grow together in God's Word more and more as our culture drifts further away from that Word. If you are interested in further reflection on the Biblical, historical, and spiritual necessity of the evening worship service you can read the articles by various Reformed Pastor's here.
The creeds allow us to unite with the Church of all time and in all places in a common confession. The creeds and confessions that we hold to affirm true belief; they were written at various points in history, using Scripture, to combat heresy and unite true believers. (See Pastor’s Reflection on Apostle’s Creed, Nicene Creed and Athanasian Creed.)
We do have a nursery for infants and toddlers. We urge you to bring older children into worship with you so that they too can be edified by the Word and worship. After the service, we do offer Sunday School classes for children ages 3 through Grade 5 and two Catechism Classes for children in Middle School and High School.
The Reformed faith traces its roots back to the Protestant Reformation and men such as Martin Luther and John Calvin. While beliefs and practices may differ, Reformed theology focuses on the sovereignty of God, the authority of Scripture, and salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
