What is Worship Like?
Christian worship joyfully ascribes all praise and honor, glory and power to the triune God. In worship the people of God acknowledge God present in the world and in their lives. As they respond to God’s claim and redemptive action in Jesus Christ, believers are transformed and renewed. In worship the faithful offer themselves to God and are equipped for God’s service in the world. (Directory for Worship, W-1.1001)
At DMPC, we embrace worship based in the Reformed tradition – it is participatory and friendly. We believe there is a reason for the order of our worship. We begin by “Assembling in God’s Name”, hear one of our pastors “Proclaiming God’s Word”, and conclude by “Responding to the Good News”. We print the liturgy in the Bulletin so that everyone can join in, whether or not you know it by heart. We sing to the organ and the piano, with the occasional additional instrument or two. We include our children and youth in worship, and encourage children to remain in the sanctuary for worship, although we do offer child care for parents who prefer it for children who are infants through first grade. We pass the Peace of Christ to each other and to our community through our radio broadcast for those that are not able to attend in person. There is no dress code, and we invite you to share your concerns and joys for prayer. We invite you to join us in worship and prayer every Sunday at 11:00 am.
