What should I expect?
We have Sunday School that begins at 9:30 a.m. where people break up into smaller groups for Bible study and fellowship. It's one of the best ways to get to know people at the church. Our worship service begins at 10:45 a.m. We follow an order of worship that includes music, Scripture readings, prayers, the sermon, and a benediction. The music is traditional congregational worship with a mixture of hymns and music sung by our choir.
Where do I park?
We have two parking lots available for guests and members with the side lot having dedicated spaces for guests. The other lot is directly behind the church and has ample parking for everyone. Both lots provide easy access to the building, however most people enter through the rear entrances.

What should I wear?
We want you to come to Deer Park as you are! We have members who dress in traditional Sunday clothing and those who dress casually. You will fit in and be welcomed in whatever you choose to wear.
What type of people attend Deer Park?
We are a congregation of people from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds who are united together by the love of God in Christ Jesus.
Do you have childcare?
Yes! Deer Park has Sunday School for elementary age children and childcare for babies through preschool. All of our children’s ministry workers are experienced, trusted, and eager to care for your child.
Do I need to give financially?
We will never pressure anyone into giving anything at anytime. We believe that giving is a personal decision that is solely between the person and the Lord. We pray before our offering collection and quietly pass the plate between people. There are special instances of announced offering drives for local, state, national, and global missions along with a monthly emphasis on benevolence giving on Communion Sundays.
