Our Worship Is...
In a day where church and worship has undergone nearly every innovation imaginable, why would we continue to embrace an historical liturgy for our worship? We believe worship is a transcendent meeting between the sovereign God of the universe and his covenant children—and therefore the event ought to flow thoughtfully from element to element as the divine drama unfolds each week.
We believe the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are in fact God’s Spirit-guided, inerrant and all-sufficient word. We also believe the overarching story of the Bible is God the Father, sending God the Son to rescue sinners from a disposition of sin and certain death in the power of God the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we believe biblical preaching is Christ-centered preaching, and that is what you will encounter at Redeemer.
While we are not prone to pursue innovation in worship, we are committed to meaningful music and singing that inspires worshipers to offer their praises to God. Committed to thoughtful, biblical lyrics and accompanied with piano, violin, guitars and a kick drum, the historic and the contemporary merge into a meaningful and harmonious encounter.
What to Expect...
When you step in the doors of Redeemer Presbyterian Church at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center, you will be warmly greeted and directed to our worship space and children’s area. Though we are in the “Music Box” the vast majority of the time, occasionally due to the booking of other events, our gracious hosts at the DSO provide us with alternative meeting spaces within the music center. Once the service begins you will experience a rare blend of historic liturgy with current and meaningful worship music and teaching that is solidly Biblical yet accessible to people from every walk of life. Each week our services culminate with the Lord’s Supper. We believe you will find Sundays at Redeemer very meaningful. We value children and love to have them in the service with us, though for the younger children aged 6 months – 4 years, we offer safe, professional childcare option for the entire service, or just during the sermon, with meaningful and age appropriate activities and materials.
When Redeemer launched, we were thrilled to see involvement from many families with young children, especially since we anticipated mostly singles and young couples.
We now offer multiple options for families to learn and worship together on Sundays.
Sunday School—9:45 a.m.
We offer Christ-centered Sunday school for ages K-2nd grade and 3rd-5th grade. Our current curriculum focuses on understanding and growing in the Christian faith..
Nursery care is also available for children ages 6 months and older during this time.
When young children (2-7) enter our worship area they are offered a really cool tote bag filled with various articles of interest for children — crayons, coloring sheets, Etch-a-Sketch, magnetic books, Magna Doodles, Wooly Willy, and such. This has been an amazing asset in keeping children occupied throughout the service.
We offer professional childcare for children aged 6 months – 4 years. Parents can drop their children off before the service or allow them to participate in song and prayer before the pastor dismisses them to the kids’ room. We ask parents to pick up their children just after the sermon.
To include children in the service from an early age, we encourage parents to bring them forward during communion. The Pastor lays a hand on them and blesses them by simply saying “The Lord bless you,” or “Jesus loves you,” and they can then join us for the closing song.
