How We Worship
Worship is the central act of the church's life. It is the action of acknowledging God's praiseworthiness and glory. We acknowledge God's presence with us through singing, praying, through the sacraments, giving gifts, and attending to a message from the Bible.
Worship celebrates God's greatness and faithfulness to God's beloved creation. Worship enables us to articulate our faith and to put it into practice by celebrating God-with-us in word, song, and responsive action.
Reformed congregations share a commitment to sound preaching, Christian education for people of all ages, and loving spiritual care and guidance. The worship at NBRC follows the RCA liturgy, blending traditional and contemporary forms of expression:
Reformed Church worship is corporate.
Worship is not a performance with the minister as actor or actress and the congregation as the audience. The Word of God and the real presence of Christ Among Us through the Holy Spirit is our focus, and the whole congregation is involved in the service-- in prayer, song, and offering.
Reformed Church worship is sacramental.
When we celebrate the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper, God's Presence is known to us through all of our senses. We hear God's promise of forgiveness; we see and hear the water of baptism that cleanses; we touch and smell and taste the communion elements that signify Christ's body and blood.
Worship provides regular opportunities for our faith to be awakened, renewed, and energized. Come; all things are ready, and all of God's people are welcome!
Sunday Worship Begins at 9:30 a.m.
We encourage you to arrive a few moments early
to relax and prepare yourself for worship.
