ANNOUNCEMENT: due to the recent increase in the strictness of government regulations related to the corona virus, our Session has determined as of March 21 to begin having our worship services through online webcasts on our SermonAudio page.  We deem this as a necessary, temporary thing for an unusual time and do not see online worship as an appropriate long-term way of having church and public assemblies of worshipping God on His holy day. 

Click here is a letter to the Church explaining our thinking. Or,  click here to read our recent article on Reformation21.org.

Here is the information about how to join us for worship online or a phone line (audio only) on the Lord’s Day:

*Go to: www.sermonaudio.com/puritanchurch When we are live you will see the video on the top of this page.  Click on it and it will begin to stream.
*On our home page (www.puritanchurch.com) the live stream should hopefully be imbedded and “auto play” once you open that page.
*For those you know who may not use smart phones or computers and the internet, you can let them know to call this SermonAudio phone number: 712-432-3410.  Once dialed in, the person will need to type our SA code: 53205.   

Join in simple, pure, conservative, Reformed, Biblical worship with your covenant family TOGETHER, led by Presbyterian elders. Sit under Biblical, passionate preaching in the style of the Puritans.
