Helping Others To Know Christ
Learning Together to Live for Christ
Every Sunday we gather as a congregation to pray and praise God, hear his Word, meet at his table, and encourage one another in our faith.
In our worship services, we strive for both reverence and joy, and we sing a combination of songs both old and new.
We seek to provide robust Bible teaching that helps us to know God personally and to live as followers of Jesus Christ in the real world.
We celebrate the Lord's Supper each week both to remind us of God's great sacrificial love for us, and to strengthen us in our faith by his Spirit.
Every other week we gather in smaller groups in the home to share a meal and conversation together, to discuss how God's Word applies to our lives as followers of Jesus Christ, and to pray for one another, the church, and the world. Childcare is provided by each of the groups.
Children's church is held on most Sundays during the school year for kids who are ages 4, 5, or 6 on September 1st of that school year. We use “The Gospel Project” curriculum, which is a multi-year program that takes kids through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, showing how the whole biblical story centers on Jesus. All children's church volunteers are members of the church and have passed standard background checks.
A nursery is provided during our Sunday worship service for infants and children who are not yet 4 years old on September 1st of that school year. The kids enjoy an open playtime, a time of reading Bible stories, and a snack. All nursery workers have passed standard background checks.
Families Connect welcomes local moms and 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 or various indoor locations. There is no agenda, we meet together to spend time with other parents 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.
The church also sponsors an Adopt-a-Student program to connect Purdue students with families in the congregation.
