Worship

What a joy and privilege it is to worship God.  Worshiping together alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ is a joyous way to celebrate all of the gifts that God has given to us.  We gather each Sunday morning at 10:30 am for a time of corporate worship.  Here's a bit of what you will find when you join us.  A nursery is available for for all children ages 4 and under.  Children 5 and older are encouraged to remain in worship and hear God's Word.  Most Sundays, there is a children's message immediately before the sermon.  The dress is pretty casual and relaxed.  After all, it's not how we look, but who we worship.

Music

The choir, under the direction of our Director of Music Ministries, leads the musical portion of worship with a combination of traditional and contemporary music. In addition, they offer periodic special music and a yearly Christmas Cantata. There are many opportunities to participate, so if you like to sing, or if you play a musical instrument, please consider being a part of our music ministry. Practices are every Thursday at 6:30 pm and all are welcome to join us in making a joyful noise.

Preaching

All of worship is centered around the Word of God.  Sermons are expository, exegetical, and gospel-centered.  We know that you come to worship not to hear a message from someone else, but to hear the Word of God faithfully proclaimed.  We are currently walking through a series on 1 & 2 Thessalonians entitled "Being a Follower of Christ."

Prayer

Prayer is fundamental to worship.  During our worship services, we pray that the Holy Spirit would allow us to come before God without all of the distractions that so often seek to divert our eyes from the cross.  It is only through the work of the Holy Spirit that our eyes, ears, hearts, and minds can be opened fully to receive God's inerrant and holy Word.

Sacraments

Part of our worship includes the proper observation of the sacraments, an outward and visible sign of inward and spiritual divine grace.


Sacraments are holy signs and seals of the covenant of grace.  They were instituted by God along with that covenant to represent Christ and his benefits, to confirm our position with and in him, and to demonstrate a visible difference between those who belong to the church and the rest of the world, and solemnly to engage believers in the service of God in Christ according to his word. - Westminster Confession of Faith 27.1


Here at CPC, we believe that there are only two sacraments:  baptism and the Lord's Supper.  We observe the sacrament of the Lord's Supper on the first Sunday on each month.  This is not exclusive only the members of CPC or to merely Presbyterians.  These elements are for all Christians who profess Jesus Christ to be their Lord and Savior, and have been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
