Doctrine requires more than a mental assent. Community Groups provide the atmosphere for real life application of our doctrine. Union with other believers is the context of accountability which allows us to experience the grace of our Lord. We were never meant for lone ranger status. Our community groups provide the means by which we are never alone. Only then are we able to ‘be light’ in a very dark world.
We meet twice per month through the school year. Come join us.
Glorifying God through music is an important part of our worship when we gather together. Our typical Sunday service will include both traditional hymns as well as more contemporary praise choruses.
A chamber choir of musicians also gathers on a semi-regular basis to prepare songs for special events and occasional services.
We believe that Christianity is synonymous with discipleship to Christ. Disciples of Jesus are people who do not just profess certain views about Jesus as their own, but apply their growing understanding of life in the kingdom of God to every aspect of their present life on earth.
We have regularly-meeting discipleship and Bible study groups for both men and women. These typically meet every other week in the home of a member or at the Faith West Community Center.
Children's church is held on Sundays during the regular school year for kids from age 4 to second grade. We use the curriculum called “The Gospel Project.” This is a multi-year program that starts at Genesis and works through the Bible showing how all parts of the Bible point to Jesus. With the range of age 4 to second grade, we mix The Gospel Project curriculum for younger kids (ages 6-8) and preschool (ages 4-5) to provide a developmentally appropriate learning environment for the children of the church.
Nursery is provided for infants and children up to four years old during our regular Sunday service hours. This includes an open play time, a time of reading Bible stories, and a snack.
Moms Connect welcomes all local moms (and even dads) regardless of their beliefs to attend with their children (any age, but most are infants to 5). We meet every other Friday; the location is announced earlier in the week. Depending on the weather, we go to local playgrounds, homes, or various indoor locations. There is no agenda, we meet together to spend time with other moms (or dads) and give our children opportunities to meet new friends and socialize.
Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is the campus ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), with chapters on over 160 campuses. Though we are Presbyterian in affiliation, we welcome students from all walks of life, both the convinced & unconvinced. Regardless of your beliefs or doubts, RUF is a safe place for you to explore Christianity and grow in your understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him in community with others at Purdue.
