We believe that God's Word clearly sets forth how He is to be worshiped. The reading and preaching of the Word of God are the central focus of our worship. Our musical praise employs God's Word only, thus making use of the divinely inspired Book of Psalms of the Bible. In keeping with the New Testament Church's directive for heart worship, we sing without the aid of musical instruments.
Sermons preached at DRPC can be found here.
Our dress code runs the range from suit and tie to t-shirt and blue jeans. Other than encouraging modesty in dress, we hope you wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Our children remain with us during worship and the preaching of the Word. We believe that God has included our children as members of the new covenant community of Christ and they should be included in our worship service. The position of both Christ and the Psalmist was that children were capable of praising God. (Matt 21:16 and Psalm 8:2). We want our children to learn from an early age what it means to worship God corporately and what better way for them to learn than to be a part of the service.
We celebrate the Lord's Supper Quarterly to give the congregation time to prepare to meet with the Lord. The Lord's Supper is the Christian feast that replaces Passover. The quarterly observance of the Supper matches the quarterly feasts of the Old Testament. It also allows for the whole counsel of God to be preached during the rest of the year, and allows us to intensely focus on the atonement of Jesus Christ on the day communion is celebrated. To understand this historic Presbyterian practice, please consider the following sermon.
We celebrate the Supper at a Common Table, with a Common Loaf of Bread, and a Common Cup. To understand this Biblical and historic practice, please consider the following sermon.
|12:00pm||Lunch (always plenty for guests)|
Currently, we live stream via SermonAudio and Facebook during our service times.
If you are using SermonAudio, the live stream will activate a few minutes before each service and will be viewable below. Alternatively, you can search for us on SermonAudio on your device.
Here is a link to a video of a gathering of Reformed Presbyterians from around the world singing Psalm 102. It is one of the most beautiful sounds in the world - to hear the saints praise God with His own words, with grace in their hearts.
To consider the Biblical practice of Psalm singing, you can find three messages in the Gospel Worship sermon series that explain the Biblical reasons for singing the psalms.
We do not have a collection in the worship service. However, there is a box outside of the meeting hall where you may deposit your tithes and offerings.
For those who would like to give electronically, please use this link - Tithe.ly link for DRPC. We know that many non-members appreciate the ministry of this congregation and would like to support it. But we do request that you do not neglect your giving to your local congregation. If you wish to give above your tithe to your local body, then we count it a blessing if you choose to support the ministry here financially. But do not have it come at the expense of your own body that is watering your soul.
