Worship at First Presbyterian Church
Worship is an integral part of our Sunday morning experience. It helps to center us, and inspires us as we grow deeper in our relationship with God. At First Presbyterian Church, we worship in both traditional and contemporary contexts combined with thought provoking and faith challenging messages that relate scripture to real life and the ever changing world around us.
We then go forward into the world to share the good news of God's love and grace with our neighborhoods, throughout the community, and beyond.
The music in our worship is a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary anthems.
During the school year, we are blessed to have our Choir and Handbell Choir sharing during worship.
Visit our Music Ministry Page to learn more about how to become involved in music ministry, or to share your musical gifts at FPC.
We celebrate The Lord's Supper (or Communion) on the first Sunday of each month and various other times throughout the year.
All are invited to Christ's table to receive Communion - we do not restrict access to this sacrament. Ours is an "open table." At their parents' discretion, children may receive the bread and cup or come forward for a blessing.
We also offer Home Bound Communion on a regular basis to those unable to join us in person for worship services.
Children in Worship
Children are welcome and encouraged to worship with their families and are invited to participate in all aspects of the service. Worship is central to our faith and is a time of witness and celebration that is meant for ALL of God's children - young and old alike. Sharing our worship time with children is an important part of our journey together in faith.
All children present during worship are invited to come forward during the Children's Message to share in a special message prepared just for them. It is quite common to see our youngest members running to the front for this special time in the service.
For those who choose, we have a fully staffed nursery available for children under 5years of age during worship, sunday school, and other special meetings/events.
