Worship is the center of our lives together as a community of faith. Our relationship with God is expressed in prayer, song, music, word, and sacrament. We are contemporary people mindful of tradition, but not bound by it.
Liturgy and prayer form the way we approach God, both in hearing God’s word for us, as well as speaking our word to God. We do this in both traditional and contemporary forms, blending language that has been passed down from the church with language that springs up from our daily lives, our concern for ourselves and the world around us.
Baptism: We are reminded of the water we are baptized with, going down to the river with Jesus to be baptized in him, to receive his peace & to be raised in new life with him: Jesus is our Shepherd, our Lord, and our life.
The Lord’s Supper – Holy Communion: As a community of believers, we come to the Lord’s Table with all assurance of new life in Jesus Christ, joyfully partaking in the bread & wine, signs of the real presence of Christ; though he be in heaven & we on earth, we are nonetheless joined together in mystical union. The Reformed Church of Metuchen celebrates communion the first & third Sunday of the month.
Like the sacraments, preaching is central to the life of the church. We endeavor to be faithful to the gospel – exploring how God’s Word continues to speak to us through the power of the Holy Spirit as we interpret and re-interpret the scriptures, making sense of them in the twenty-first century in the midst of science, cultural shifts, technology, and the world as we know it.
