DERRY CHURCH IN A NUTSHELL
Our church is called and gathered into being to worship the God of our salvation with adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication; to teach the knowledge and ways of God, encourage critical thinking and thoughtful engagement with the world, and foster the growth of dedicated disciples of Christ; to serve our brothers and sisters locally and around the world by sharing the good news of the Gospel, working for justice, providing care and comfort, and bringing hope in the name of Jesus Christ; and to share our lives together in fellowship in mutual affection, joy, and concern.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A Sunday morning worship experience at Derry is uplifting and follows the reformed tradition. Hymns are sung and there’s a time to ask for forgiveness of sins, and to hear an assurance of forgiveness. A passage or two is read from the Bible – usually there are readings from the Old and the New Testaments. You’ll hear a story just for children, and sometimes a guest soloist shares vocal or instrumental music. The pastor reads scripture and preaches a sermon, and prayers are said. The entire service takes about an hour.
