At Chestnut Ridge, we believe worship is not limited to corporate gatherings but rather it is a lifestyle of bringing glory to God. Our gatherings are a time where we hope to hear from God and respond to Him as the body of Christ. God reveals Himself largely through scripture, so we commit ourselves to singing, preaching, praying, and reading the truths of the Bible in our services. Our worship is led by the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the depth of our sin. In light of our sin we are reminded that we have a great Savior in Jesus and that our worship in fellowship with other believers is made possible by His redeeming work.
We sing a variety of hymns and songs, old and new, all with the same gospel-centered theme. Our music is focused more on excellence than on preference, which leads to an eclectic worship experience.
There are several opportunities for involvement in our services. The Worship Team rehearses Wednesday nights at 8:00 in the sanctuary and leads regularly in Sunday worship. The team is comprised of vocalists and all kinds of instruments, the more the merrier. Contact Pastor Darrell or Scott Thomas if you are interested in participating in the praise band.
Your desire is to see your children begin a lifelong, joyous relationship with Jesus Christ. We share that desire and make it our mission. We work and pray hard to create a loving, safe environment where children can come to know Christ, love Him, and serve Him.
Our Children’s Department Team believes that it’s a blessing to serve God by serving your children. We welcome all families with newborn babies all the way through fifth grade. Each class is specifically designed to engage children’s minds, strengthen their friendships with other children and deepen their knowledge of Jesus.
Children’s Sunday School
We have Sunday School Classes for children ages 2 through 5th grade at 9:30 a.m. Please see Nursery page for more information on children from birth through age five.
Our Sunday School program helps kids explore life issues and then apply them to Bible truths. Our Hands on Bible curriculum is just that hands on! Kids dive in and get involved, learning as they explore and engage all of their senses. Imagine Bible lessons your kids can touch….see…hear…taste…and smell!
Children’s church takes place during the adult worship hour at 10:45 a.m. Preschoolers rooms are located downstairs in the kid’s department and the Kindergarten through 2nd grade classes are located upstairs in the Fellowship Hall.
