We seek to worship God according to the ways he has commanded us in his Word. The Psalms, hymns and songs that we sing are focused on glorifying Christ and thanking him for his mercy to us in the gospel. We also strive to unite the past with the present, combining historic forms of worship with the best of contemporary hymnody, so that we can worship together as a multi-generational family of God’s people. We encourage you to worship God with physical expression that reflects sincere love for God and loving awareness of the brothers and sisters with whom you are worshiping.
In keeping with Christ’s command and the pattern of the early church, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper weekly; this helps to keep our eyes firmly focused on Christ, who is our only hope. As redeemed sinners who are weak and needy, we need constantly to be reminded of the gospel, and the Lord’s Supper makes the gospel message visible and tangible to those who receive it by faith in Christ. It communicates to us afresh the cost of our sin and the glory of our salvation, nourishing us spiritually and reminding us that the death of Jesus assures us of God’s love for us as individuals, and binding us together in a new community.
Every Sunday at 4pm, we gather for worship in Westminster Theological Seminary's Carriage House. Click below to get directions
Our desire is that our service would minister to people of all ages. However, we do provide a nursery for very young children, and also offer a “Young Worshippers in Training” Program (“Y-WIT”) for children whose parents feel that they would benefit from it. This program is designed to prepare our children to understand all aspects of the worship service, and includes a short lesson based on the same text as the sermon. Children attending Y-WIT are excused during the service before the pastoral prayer and rejoin their parents for communion.
We take seriously our responsibility to lovingly protect the children who participate in nursery and Y-WIT. All of our children’s ministry volunteers complete a Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check and obtain Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances, both of which are renewed every two years.
Our community groups follow the pattern of the earliest Christians who gathered together both in larger groups for public worship and in smaller groups for prayer, study and encouragement. Community groups meet together in homes over the course of the week to discuss the previous Sunday’s sermon, pray and eat together. All members and regular attenders of the church are encouraged to participate in a community group. For meeting times and locations, contact Iain
