What to Expect
WHAT IS WORSHIP LIKE?
Our typical weekly worship services have a traditional format with some modern components. We sing hymns and songs written throughout the history of the Church, including ancient and contemporary music. Our organist/pianist accompanies us as we sing our faith, and our choir adds to the beauty of our worship through various anthems and responses. On the first Sunday of the month, all are welcome to receive communion.
WHAT ARE THE MESSAGES LIKE?
At First Presbyterian Church, we strive to communicate the good news of Christ in meaningful ways. Each sermon is based on a passage from the Old or New Testament and interpreted in a way that is encouraging to listeners and relevant to present-day concerns. A typical message is approximately 15 minutes.
WHERE DO I TAKE MY KIDS?
For children 4 and younger, we have childcare available in our nursery area beginning at 9:30 am. (Just follow the signs when you come through the west entrance.) We have Sunday School classes for children 5 and up from 9:30 – 10:20. Sunday school is not offered during Summer Worship.
Beginning at 10:25 am, children 5 and up join us in the sanctuary until the Time with Children, after which they are invited to participate in Children’s Church. Summer worship service is at 10:00 am.
Middle School and High School students are invited to participate fully in our regular worship services.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
You’re invited to come just as you are. You’ll see folks wearing everything from jeans to shorts and flip-flops to a suit, so you will fit in no matter what.
WHERE DO I FIND MORE INFORMATION WHEN I ARRIVE?
When you visit, there will be several people wearing pins that say either “Elder” or Deacon.” They can help you with any questions you may have. You are also invited to talk to the pastor either before or after worship.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
Our regular worship service is at 10:30 am. We ask that you arrive at least a few minutes early before worship begins. During the summer our worship hours change to 10:00 am.
