What to Expect
We're so glad you're checking out our webpage. Our mission is to know God, disciple believers and evangelize unbelievers by His grace and means. We can't wait to meet you.
The Lord's Day
Our Triune God has graciously set aside one day every seven days for us to spiritually rest in Him through worship and that day is Sunday. It is good for God's people to gather every Sunday to be reminded of the finished work of Christ and how to live in light of that. Join us for Sunday morning corporate worship at 10:30 am and prayer time at 4 pm. Here are some things to look for when joining us:
Preaching grounded in and dictated by the Scripture. We preach through the Bible and reverence it as certain, sufficient, and infallible. We believe that all of Scripture testifies about Christ who came to seek and save the lost.
We are committed to singing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16) each Lord's Day.
We have a firm belief that Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth now. He is ruling. He is reigning. Therefore, we worship, love, and evangelize in light of Christ's authority. We are optimistic that God's plan to make disciples of all nations will be successful.
We love people. You will find Deer Park Fellowship a place where you feel welcomed and wanted. Our hospitality team is there to greet you with a coffee each week and answer any questions you may have. Additionally, our elders love to regularly have people in their homes to share a meal. We want to get to know you and serve you where you are in your walk with the Lord.
Intentional & Secure Children's Ministry
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. Kid's Ministry opens after congregational singing each week.
For children 8 & up or families that choose to not use children’s ministry, we welcome the noise that comes from kids into our service. Not everything from a church service is understandable for 8 and up, but they can understand the rhythms and liturgy of a Sunday morning service and grow in their knowledge with age. Each week we send out a family worship guide to help make the Sunday message put in simpler terms for families. This is a tool to help teach their kids the same truths they are growing in each week.
We are located near the intersection of I-64 and J Clyde Morris Boulevard in Newport News, VA. Consider joining us this weekend! Our Lord's Day service starts on Sunday at 10:30am.
