Worshipping the Triune God on Sunday. Our aim is to hear God speak to us in His Word and respond with praise, prayer, and adoration. Biblical preaching explains and applies the riches of God's truth.

Heidelberg Youth Camp (in June)
We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the first Lord's Day of every month.
The Lord's Supper is a sacrament of the Church instituted by Christ himself. The elements of bread and wine symbolize, for believers, the broken body and shed blood of Christ and our participation at the Lord's Table represents our communion with Christ. These elements do not physically change into the body and blood of Christ, nor are these elements to be the object of worship. We are to worship the Triune God alone and not any part of His creation.
We must solemnly examine ourselves, recognizing that we, as sinners, are completely unworthy of God's redeeming grace. Nevertheless, we may joyfully approach the Lord's Table if we trust in Christ alone, and His atoning sacrifice, for our salvation.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord? (Col. 3:16).
Since it is the purpose of public worship to glorify God, prayer and praise should predominate in congregational singing. Every member of the church ought to participate in this element of worship. Singing should be done not merely with the lips but with the spirit and the understanding. Since the metrical versions of the Psalms are based upon the Word of God, they ought to be used frequently in public worship. Great care must be taken to insure that all the materials of song are in complete accord with the teaching of Holy Scripture. The tunes as well as the words should be dignified and elevated. The stately rhythm of the chorales is especially appropriate for public worship. No person shall take a special part in the musical service unless he is a Christian and adorns his profession with a godly walk.?
