In many ways (most ways, probably), TRP's services are exactly what you would expect from a local church. We sing a few songs together, we usually have some announcements to make, the majority of our time is devoted to a sermon, and we conclude with communion.
(1) We are a small community. You will be seen. And we will do our best to welcome you (without overdoing it!) prior to the service.
(2) Kids (ages 3–12) begin the service with the adults and stay for the singing. We always finish the music with an a cappella version of the Doxology. Afterwards, we ask the kids to come up front for an affirmation led by a regular attender of TRP.
(3) Our sermons are not 25-minute monologues. They are conversational. The week's preacher will ask some questions ... and they want people to actually respond! Everyone is invited to participate, but if that makes you uncomfortable, silence is perfectly fine. (No one will be called on.)
To give you an idea of how this works in practice, it's not strange for someone to begin their response, "I struggle to believe God exists, so this issue is tough for me ..."
Or "This passage really troubles me for the following reasons ..."
Or "I have heard this text being used in problematic ways, can we talk about it ..."
Or sometimes participants might just ask a question about the text.
Anything, as long as it is respectful of the community and our goals, is fair game.
