We commit our gifts to WORSHIP gathering as a community to celebrate God’s presence among us!
Come Worship with Us!
Sundays @10 AM in the historic sanctuary
Our choir leads worship during Advent and Lent. All singers can participate! And artistic contributions to the service are welcome any time of the year. Please contact Katie Connolly if you would like to share your gifts.
If you are interested in assisting with liturgy (reading scripture or leading the Call to Worship or a prayer) please speak with Pastor Travis or Gracie Johnson.
Reformed Church Worship follows John Calvin’s three stages of Christian experience: guilt, grace and gratitude. Every Sunday service is divided into three corresponding sections, which are clearly indicated in the Order of Worship.
Our Approach to God.
True, meaningful worship of God requires preparation. Pre-service silence and the Musical Prelude are times of meditation and personal prayer. We can approach God only in honesty and humility. To arrive at this state of the spirit, we must be reminded of God’s plan for our lives, which is revealed every week in the Law. The reading of the Law exposes our failure to heed God’s will, so we must then ask for forgiveness in the Prayer of Confession. God gladly bestows forgiveness on the truly penitent heart, as declared by the Assurance of Pardon.
The Word of God.
We now ask God to help us understand His will for our lives in the Prayer for Illumination, Scripture Reading, Children’s Minute and Sermon.
Our Response to the Word.
God calls all Christians to action in a public declaration of faith (the Apostles’ Creed), acts of service (the Offering), and Prayer. Our pledge to serve God continues through the week.
