We take the discipleship and security of our children seriously. Our children's ministry program is for ages 0-7 years old. Our aim is to come alongside parents in the discipleship of their children. We catechize our children and do verse memorization with them as well as sing God-centered songs with them, pray with and for them, and have a time of crafts and play. We have a secure check in approach for parents, each volunteer goes through a background check annually, and we have a security team that patrols the ministry area during the service. Additionally, we have cameras in each room readily available to parents and the security team every week.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God (Phil. 4:6)
We are a praying church. We believe that prayer is an opportunity to commune with the Lord and we believe that prayer is practical- that God really accomplishes His plan and purposes for our lives through the means of prayer.
Therefore, each Lord’s Day we gather and have focused times of prayer to God. In our morning service we have times of corporate prayer including a time of confession and assurance of salvation and at 4pm each Sunday members of our congregation gather together to pray for the church and the particular needs of the members.
At Deer Park Fellowship we love to sing. And when we gather each week to sing, we sing songs that make much of God. Each Lord’s Day we come together to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19) and as we do we are reminded of who we are in Christ Jesus.
Our prayer is that everyone that walks through our doors will feel seen and welcomed. We believe that hospitality must be intentional, therefore, we have different areas of the church focused on providing a hospitable environment to our members and visitors:
If you would like to learn about how you can volunteer in any of the above areas, please fill out the contact information below and one of our staff members will reach out to you soon.
In addition to providing a hospitable place, we also aim to provide a safe place for you and your family to worship. We have a vetted and trained security team in place every Sunday that monitors our children’s ministry, sanctuary, and common spaces. They ensure a proper check in and check out system for our children and they keep the overall building secure during the service. If you would like to go through the process of becoming a security team volunteer please fill out the contact form and one of our staff members will reach out to you shortly.
We are intentionally not an overly programmatic church. We don’t have lots of ministries that target certain age demographics. We believe that God’s people grow best in multi-generational environments. We want people to brush shoulders with people who aren’t like them or in the same stage of life as much as possible.
However, we do want to offer intentional on-roads for focused spiritual maturity. One of the ways in which we do that is through mentoring. Mentoring can be one-on-one or it can be conducted in groups. We have spiritually mature men and women in our church passionate about mentoring people in different stages of life. From middle school to retirement we would love to pair you with a mentor. If you are interested in being mentored please fill out the contact form and one of our staff members will reach out to you soon.
