We are glad you are here with us today because we believe that our time is special and life-transforming. We meet at 10AM in our Main Auditorium, with a livestream outdoors in the shade and indoors in the Family Room. The Family Room is set up especially for young children and parents. The outdoor area is for anyone, including pets.

For those who don't want to or who can't gather, we believe that they may still benefit from many of the ministries of the word of God and of worship. Hence, we livestream our Sunday service for those people who do not gather with us. Please be aware that watching online (rather than gathering) limits your ability to worship, which is meant to be done together. It is not what the Bible means by "the church," which literally means "the assembly." Therefore, we hope and encourage you to join us every Sunday.
Our Sunday Worship Service consists of:
PRAYING & READING SCRIPTURE. We submit ourselves to God with a reading of Scripture and go to Him in prayer, recognizing the One we have gathered to worship. God’s mercies are new every morning.
SINGING TOGETHER. We joyously join together in song in praise of the triune God. Singing helps us to connect our hearts and emotions to God and unites us as we rejoice in the gospel.
STUDYING SCRIPTURE. We open God’s word to study what it says and apply it. The Bible is God’s self-disclosure to His people. It is a light unto our paths and sustenance for our souls.
KIDS CHURCH. Kids Church consists of a children's program for 2-7-year-olds and another program for 2nd grade to 5th grade students. There is also a Family Room for parents with infants and toddlers which shows audio and video of the main worship service. Children in these age ranges are also welcome to attend the main worship service with their families. And of course, children younger than 2 and 6th grade and up are welcome in "Big Church."
TAKING COMMUNION. The gathered church (those physically attending) will take communion in remembrance of the sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God, Jesus Christ. (Those who are not gathering will forgo this ordinance.)
OFFERING OUR FINANCES & PRAYERS. Having received God’s word, we respond in worship by prayerfully, joyfully, and sacrificially giving of our money. Use our app to offer prayer requests and seek fellowship, and give offerings online. You can also ask for prayer and give offerings on this website.
SHARING CHURCH NEWS. We give church announcements of important things that are happening in our congregation, how to get involved, where you can serve, and how you can grow.
SCATTERING FOR MISSION. Having responded in repentance and faith, being equipped by God’s word and filled with His Spirit, we embrace our calling as children of God to be witnesses of His love and grace.
MEET IN COMMUNITY GROUPS. During the week we gather for fellowship, prayer, and study in homes throughout Los Angeles to wrestle with the truths of the Bible and love one another. Most groups are meeting in person or through online software such as Zoom. Find a Community Group near you by visiting: delreychurch.com/cgmap
MEMORIZE THE CATECHISM. Join with others in our church as we memorize the New City Catechism. The word catechism comes from a Greek word κατηχέω (katecheo), which is a term used to describe the communication of information and instruction. As Christians, we are deeply concerned that our community is one marked by communication of biblical information and godly instruction for life in Christ.
Memorize the question and answer.
- Question 13: Can anyone keep the law of God perfectly?
- Answer: Since the fall, no mere human has been able to keep the law of God perfectly, but consistently breaks it in thought, word, and deed.
- Scripture Reference: Romans 3:10-12
- Check out our awesome Catechism Resources with activities and songs to help you memorize!
GIVE FINANCIAL OFFERINGS TO SUPPORT THE CHURCH. It is good for us to give as part of our regular worship to support the mission and ministry of the church - that's why God tells us to do it. We offer many ways to give to suit any mode of generosity the Lord puts on your heart. You can give on our app (tap the "GIVE" tile). You can give right here on our website at delreychurch.com/online-giving.
