Certain aspects of the service will be consistent every week. One of those aspects is reading Scripture out loud together. At times, we also recite ancient confessions like The Apostle’s Creed, and we often conclude by reciting a biblical prayer, such as the Lord’s Prayer.
You can expect a mix of modern and ancient songs that magnify Christ. Our worship leader strives to lead us in songs that are biblically faithful and full of praise to God.
We hope to foster an atmosphere of prayer while we worship together. Our elders will often pray from the stage. Also, we hope that our observance of the Lord’s Supper will be a time of reflection and prayer.
We typically go through books of the Bible, studying a passage each week. The weekly sermon is also reviewed and discussed in our Growth Groups throughout the week. We aim to exalt Jesus in every sermon, and apply the truths of the selected text to our lives practically. We also hope that the listeners will be reproducers (teaching God’s Word to others), not just receivers.
We take the Lord’s Supper every Sunday in order to remember Christ’s atoning death and our identity as members of one body. This is also a time for repentance and renewal.
Offerings are an important part of worship. Offering boxes are located at each of the Communion tables. You can also give here. If you are a visitor to IDC, we do not expect you to give. We are simply glad to have you join us.
We welcome any children into the service to worship alongside our family of faith. We don’t mind a little noise. We also provide childcare for birth through Pre-K during corporate worship.
We provide childcare for birth through Pre-K during the 8:00am & 11:30am Worship Services and a 9:45am Discipleship Hour for birth through 5th Grade. The childcare check-in area is located in the front, west hallway. For more information about our IDC Kids ministry, visit our Kids & Students page.
Come as you are, but please wear clothes. Most are dressed casually.
