What is the worship like?
We believe that God gathers us in worship to renew his covenant promises through word and sacrament and to refresh us with his grace. In response to his mercies, we pray, sing and give thanks. If you are looking for an entertainment oriented worship experience, CDAR probably isn’t the place for you. But if you are looking for worship that is exuberantly reverential, Biblically rooted, and Christ-centered, come join us this Sunday! Each Sunday we hear the 10 Commandments, sing both Psalms and Hymns from the Trinity Psalter Hymnal, and recite the Nicene Creed as part of our service.
How Often is Communion Celebrated?
Since the OPC holds to the distribution of the Lord’s supper by only Ruling and Teaching elders, we currently serve the sacrament of Communion once a month. This has to do with our current status as a “plant” and our Ruling elders all being from neighboring OPC churches. Once we achieve church status, and have our own communicant members as Elders, we plan to serve Communion weekly. We hold the Lord’s Supper as an important part of every believer’s growth in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Through the preaching of God’s Word and the Lord’s Supper, the Holy Spirit strengthens his people in their relationship with Christ. All believers who are baptized and are members of a church that preaches the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone are invited to participate in this sacred feast.
