Worship and Praise
In our worship we use a combination of rich tradition and creative worship energy. Our historic sanctuary with beautiful stained-glass windows provides a beautiful setting for worshiping the majesty of our creator.
We have two worship services on Sunday mornings. At 8:30 we Worship 'Round the Tables. This service is held in the fellowship hall while sitting around the tables. This is a less formal service with both hymns and contemporary music being sung with CD accompaniements. Coffee and juice is available. The message utilizes powerpoint presentations and may involve interactive discussion with the congregation. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is served each Sunday at this service.
Our 10:30 service is held in our sancutary. In this service we sing a mix of traditional hymns with some contemporary hymns mixed in. Nursery care is provided during this service and 3 year olds through 12th graders are dismissed from worship following the Children's message for Sunday School classes.
During our worship services we involve members of the congregation in leadership as we strive to lift our voices to God in praise, listen to God's Word to receive a message that will assist us in living our everyday lives. We also have a children's message for our children and youth.
We also have a quarterly service of prayer and healing on a Thursday evening. This service includes quiet meditative music and a time for prayer for personal healing. For information on the scheduling of these services contact the church office, or look at our monthly calendar.
Here at the First Presbyterian Church we consider ourselves a church family. We enjoy spending time together talking, laughing, playing and eating. Each Sunday after worship we have a coffee hour, and on the first Sunday of the month we have Pizza Sunday. In addition we have various opportunities to spend time together with small group activities and family events. These groups are used to develop friendships and mutual support along with prayer and Bible Study.
We have a wide variety of fellowship groups centered around particular interests, concerns, and life stages. You are invited to explore and join any group that interests you. Newcomers are always welcome!
