Welcome to Worship at Third Reformed!
Worship Services on Sunday Morning
at 8:30 and 11:00 AM
Education, Hour for all ages at 9:40 AM.
This Sunday, December 15th we celebrate the third Sunday of Advent as we prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ. Our theme this year is entitled, "Generations that Waited," based on Hebrews chapter 11. Each Sunday in Advent, we will study and encounter great figures from the Old Testament such as Abraham and Sarah, Moses, Rahab, and King David. Children will place ornaments they have made on the Christmas tree during sanctuary worship.
With Heart, Head, and Hands
Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:37-39)
We need deep Christians who have passionate hearts, think perceptively, and reach out their hands with the love of Jesus Christ. The historic purpose statement of the church, “to know Christ and to make Christ known,” continues to guide our life and mission in the twenty-first century, reinforcing Third Reformed Church’s strong tradition of worshiping God with our minds.
We want to continue to be deep disciples while also offering our hearts in praise to God and our hands in practical deeds of service. We believe that many in our community and the world are searching not for a simplistic or easy faith, but a faith that engages the whole self before God. We seek to create not just members of the church, but disciples of Jesus who are passionate, thoughtful and reflective, and put faith into action in the community and the world.
