"Welcome! We hope to see you soon. Below are some resources to help you plan your visit."
What is a Sunday service like?
Our Morning Worship Service starts at 10am on Sundays.
Our service is marked by joyful live worship music from a contemporary band, and biblical teaching from God's Word by one of our pastors.
You can also join in to a livestream of our service via our Facebook page "Dryden Full Gospel Church" or here on our website later in the week.
What should I wear?
DFGC has a 'come as you are' atmosphere. You will see some dressed up, some dressed casually. There is no dress code. We welcome everyone. Rather, pay attention to what's going on in your heart: and come ready to meet with the Lord.

What to expect
We don't have a formal order of service, but we do have a general flow of worship: gather, word, response, send:
Where do my kids go?
We have Sunday school for children 2-11 during the sermon at the 10:00am service. After the service parents go downstairs to pick up their children. We also have a nursery room downstairs with a live feed of the service.
All children ages 2 to Grade 6 check in with a secure sticker system. The check-in process is quick and easy. All teachers and caregivers undergo a thorough background check before they're allowed to serve with children. Your kids are safe at DFGC.
THE MAIN ELEMENTS OF OUR WORSHIP
- Music - Christianity is about relationship – loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. And music helps us to express our love, devotion, and thanksgiving to God, and in the process to deepen our understanding of Him.
- Expository Biblical Preaching - The centre of our time together each week is hearing God speak to us. God has promised to speak to us through the reading and explaining of his written Word – the Bible. Each time we gather we read from the Bible and then we listen as one of our leaders explains and expounds the meaning to us. We call this expository preaching. The important thing is not the thoughts and insights of the speaker, but God’s message in the text. As the preacher proclaims God’s message from the Scriptures, God’s Holy Spirit challenges, comforts, encourages and convicts us, drawing us to the heart of the Father.
- Corporate & Individual Prayer - Together we invite the presence of God to be with us. We ask him to move us to hear and receive his Word for us that day. We intercede for one another and for our world.
- Charismatic Expression & the Gifts of the Spirit - In the New Testament, Paul explains that God empowers the church with a variety of gifts (healing, discernment, prophecy, etc.) (1 Cor. 12). We believe that these are for the church today, and you may see these active during the service. The Bible is clear that spiritual gifts must be rooted in love, not self-seeking (1 Cor. 13). God desires orderly worship, and He is the God of peace (1 Cor. 14). So, we seek to follow Paul’s biblical instruction: hearing the Spirit and living out God’s love, order and peace in worship, fellowship and ministry.
