“I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.” (Genesis 12: 2b)bible

The Word of God is at the heart of reformed worship. Worship always includes the Word, read and proclaimed. We take the Bible seriously, not literally. The Bible is our source, our access to the living Word of God. God’s desires for humanity are revealed through the text. We learn how God has worked in the past so that we will recognize God’s work among us in the present. God is always inviting us into the blessings of faithfulness, that we might share them with the world.

But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and God's righteousness to children's children. (Psalms 103:17)

children_in_churchThe church is always just one generation away from extinction. The Bible’s promises are for our children’s children. Therefore we include children in our worship and accept them as they are. There are rocking chairs in the sanctuary. Children are offered jobs appropriate to their skills. We try to include a variety of ways to experience God and always have a special time for children within the worship. They learn from the same scriptures as the adults.

Most Sundays they go to a class to hear the lesson in a developmentally appropriate format. However, on Fifth Sundays, we all stay together and engage the Word in family worship - all the generations together.

But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. (Romans 6:8)

baptismBaptism is a sacrament; a sign and a seal of the work of the Holy Spirit in our midst. Baptism is the mark of God’s eternal love for God’s children. The water is not magic. It gives the community an opportunity to re-enact Salvation history. From the Spirit brooding over water at creation (Genesis 1), to the salvation from the flood, (Genesis 9) to the liberation at the Red Sea (Exodus 14) God uses water to bless creation. Jesus was baptized in the Jordan river (Mark 1:9-11)) demonstrating his humanity. In our baptism we join in his death and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4) Baptism is the sign of belonging to the family of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Because Baptism is an act of the Holy Spirit, we baptize all ages, infant through the aged, realizing that none of us fully understands and we are all received by God’s grace alone.
