Return to Worship (Registration is no longer required)
The Session met and agreed that it is time to begin Stage 1 of a return to corporate worship. You can view the video announcement here. We began with a single, limited assembly on May 10th and then with two morning worship services starting May 17th that will have limited attendance and social distance protocols but will be sufficient to accommodate all of our members who are ready and able to return to corporate worship.
Those of you that are not ready to resume gathering or have been advised by your doctors or children not to do so, be assured we will continue to provide resources for you to facilitate worship at home and the daily and weekly spiritual care that you need and desire.
This is only Stage 1, and while it will involve a resumption of corporate worship and celebration of the Lord’s Supper, it will not be everything that we want it to be. There will be certain practices we will request you to observe in the interests of public health and our public witness. We will not have an evening service on the Lord’s Day but will make arrangements to continue encouraging worship by families at home. We will not resume Sunday School or midweek gatherings at this time but will continue to provide teaching and resources online in their place.
We hope to advance beyond Stage 1 soon, to be able to accommodate larger and less restrictive gatherings, and to eventually return to a more complete and ordinary model of church life. In the meantime, we want to encourage you to be patient, be prayerful, and grateful for the opportunities we have to soon gather once again. Thank you for all of your love, encouragement, and prayers in this process. Stay tuned for more details, and pray for us as we seek to make wise decisions.
Your servant in Christ,
Pastor Joel, on behalf of the Session
What Is Reformation OPC?
Reformation Orthodox Presbyterian Church is a conservative, Reformed, confessional church meeting in Mesa, AZ. Our church was received as a particular congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) in October 2016 and is a member of the Presbytery of Southern California. We are Reformed in doctrine, liturgical in worship, and Presbyterian in governance.
Who Are We?
We are a generationally diverse group of young and old, single and married, couples and families, widows and widowers, mature believers and new converts. We come from a variety of backgrounds and many different religious traditions, but we are united by God’s work of grace in seeking us and bringing us to himself. We share a common faith in Jesus Christ, a common confession that we are sinners saved only by the grace of God who trust in Christ alone for our salvation, and a common commitment to hear, believe, and obey God’s Word, the Bible.
What Is the OPC?
The OPC was founded in 1936 when faithful ministers and elders objected to theological liberalism in the mainline Presbyterian Church. Since that time the OPC has been steadfastly committed to the authority of Scripture, to the purity of the gospel, and to the faithful ministry of the Word and sacraments.
