Welcome!

Christ Reformed Presbyterian Church is a congregation that serves Jesus Christ in the Reformed (or Calvinist) tradition. We have deep roots in the Scottish Reformation and in the historic, apostolic Christian faith. We take the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be our ultimate authority in faith and life. Our worship is both serious and joyful, our community is tight-knit, and we are part of a Christian heritage that emphasizes courage and long-term faithfulness. 

What To Expect When You Visit

When we worship, we gather as one people in the presence of God to hear his voice; offer our praise, prayers, and gifts; and to eat at his table. Worship brings glory to the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It trains and strengthens us for the hard work of living a life of hope in the world. 

Our way of worshiping is solemn and joyful, life-giving and substantial. If you join us for worship you will hear a sermon on a passage of the Bible, usually 30-40 minutes long, explaining the text and calling us to praise, repentance, and obedience. You will hear a prayer of praise for God offered, and be invited to silently confess sin to God along with the congregation. You will participate in singing the psalms of the Bible along with the whole congregation. Many visitors will be able to join us in eating at the Lord’s Table (we take the privilege of communion very seriously: please read more here). 

Worship is at the heart of all we do as Christians and as a church. Everything we do—hospitality, mercy, our longstanding work with area refugees—flows from it, because when we worship we are reminded who Christ is and who we are because of what he has done for us. We “set the Lord always before” us (Psalm 16:8). We believe that the Holy Spirit works through the reading and preaching of Scripture and through the sacraments: that God himself comes to us and blesses us. 

And no one who meets God goes away unchanged.
