A Word to Our Visitors

Welcome: We are pleased that you have come to worship with us at CRPC. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church, has called His people to gather each Lord’s Day in worshipping assemblies like this. We pattern our worship according to the directives He has given to us in the Bible. We pray that your attendance today will be beneficial to you. Please join us for lunch in the church basement following the morning worship service.

The Lord’s Supper: We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week. You are most welcome to join us if you are able to affirm the following:

(1) Do you confess that you are a sinner in the sight of God; that you deserve His punishment; that you are unable to save yourself; and that you are without hope of salvation apart from God’s love and mercy?

(2) Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Savior of sinners; and are you trusting in Him alone for your salvation?

(3) Do you accept the Bible, comprised of the Old and New Testaments, as the written Word of God; and as the only perfect rule of faith and life?

(4) Do you rely upon the Holy Spirit so that you can live all of life as a Christian, following the example set by Jesus Christ?

(5) Do you endeavour to exercise faithful stewardship of God’s resources entrusted to you for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom and purposes?

(6) Are you a baptised communicant member in good standing of a church that teaches and requires its members to uphold (in essence) the affirmations above?

If you cannot affirm all six of these statements, please do not partake. We encourage you to speak with the pastor or with our elder after the service to discuss this. It is our desire that you would be able to make this profession.

Parents: You are encouraged to keep your children with you in the worship service. If you are training them to sit in the service, you may take them to the room at the back of the church from which the worship service can be seen and heard. If they are not ready to sit through the service, you may drop them off in the staffed nursery room in the basement of the church.
