QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
When you arrive at Providence you should be greeted by one of our greeters at the front door who is also handing out bulletins. In the bulletin you’ll see the order of service which will help you understand what we do in worship. We encourage you to make your way to the sanctuary and find a seat as we prepare ourselves for worship.
We believe that children play a vital role in the public worship of God’s people. Therefore we welcome and encourage children of all ages to attend the whole service. If you would rather not have your children sit in the sanctuary during worship, we do have a cry room and unstaffed nursery that you are more than welcome to use.
At Providence we try to balance organic and organized opportunities to learn, grow, and fellowship. We do not place a large emphasis on mid-week programs, but we do offer weekly Sunday School classes.
The Lord has given his people the privilege of the Lord’s Day (Sunday) once a week. This entirety of this day is meant to be spent in public and private worship. To help facilitate God’s command to sanctify this day, we begin and end our day in public worship. Our AM and PM services are two distinct services and we welcome you to attend both.
We are a local congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
We are a church that highly values and prizes the simplicity of worship. The church of the new covenant has been freed from the ceremonies, rituals, and complexities of the old covenant church. We have a particular focus each Lord’s Day on the Word of God (read, preached, and sung), prayer, and the sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper). When you worship with us you will see that we are faithfully committed to worshipping God reverently and joyfully.
We don’t believe that God has commanded one specific style of dress for his public worship. As we come to worship God we must remember that we are to approach him in the awe of his holiness, with a sense of our exceeding sinfulness, and a great appreciation for his grace. We encourage people to dress in a manner that they believe is fit for such worship.
