Our worship service
What to expect
We worship at the Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT). There is ample space for parking and easy access for young and old alike. DCT has been a hospitable and good Sunday morning home for us for many years.
NSP offers Worship Training classes for the duration of the worship service for children 0-24 months and 2-3 years old. A worship training class is offered during the sermon for children 4-5 years old. Please check in your child on Sunday morning by coming to the check-in table (to the left of the auditorium).
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of each month by coming forward as families to enjoy communion together. We welcome anyone to the table who has been baptized and publicly professed his or her faith in Jesus Christ by means of membership in a local church.
We have a casual, but reverent atmosphere. We engage in formal liturgy, and sing new and old songs of various styles. Most people dress casually.
Check out a group
There are various ways to connect to smaller communities within NSP, whether a men’s or women’s Bible study, a neighborhood group, or a reading group.
Come to our Visitor’s Cafe
This is a casual gathering offered several times a year where you can learn more about NSP, ask questions and meet other visitors and church members. Sign up for the next Visitor’s Cafe here.
Join our New Member Class
In the class—which meets once in the spring and once in the fall—we share some important information about membership in our church, the history of our denomination, Reformed theology, membership vows, and more. Sign up below!
Why do you meet in the Dallas Children's Theater?
You might rephrase this question as, “Will New St. Peter’s ever have a building of its own?” We certainly hope so, but acquiring property east of US-75 and south of I-635 is a complicated challenge. We are working to position ourselves so that when the Lord provides an opportunity, we will be able to act on it. Meanwhile, the DCT has been a hospitable and good Sunday morning home for us.
What is liturgy?
Liturgy is a habitual expression of worship, guided and guarded by God’s Word and informed by the historic tradition of his Church. It is literally the “work of the people,” or the words Christ gives us to say to and with one another. At New St. Peter’s, our liturgy is intentionally planned according to the principles of Scripture and several historical expressions from across the Reformed and catholic (little “c,” meaning “universal”) tradition.
What is Worship Training?
We believe God made us to worship, and that he calls the church to train even its youngest worshippers to glorify his name in the corporate worship service. Worship Training is our ministry to young children to train and prepare them to join the broader church in the worship service. We offer various kinds of worship training from birth to age 5, and then ages 6 and up participate with the church fully in the worship service. All of our children participate in some pieces of the service, especially in the sacraments. Reach out to a pastor if you have any questions
How does Membership work?
We encourage you to visit us, get to know our people and our worship, check out some small groups or bible studies, and also to attend our semi-regular visitors cafe to meet the staff and learn more about the church. Twice each year, we offer a new member class, where we talk about church membership in detail. Next, you’ll meet with a few elders to share your story, and talk further about joining the church. Finally, new members take vows of dependence on God, and dependence on the church body. It is a serious process, and we rejoice that you are interested. Please reach out to a pastor if you have any questions
What is a Session?
The “Session” is the governing body of the church, made up of our teaching and ruling elders. This group of men meets regularly for prayer and matters of church oversight. They also engage in active shepherding throughout the life of the church.
