Worship

We welcome you to join us for worship on Sunday morning. You can find both a casual contemporary service at 9 am and a traditional service at 11 am. We celebrate The Lord’s Supper every week as a means of uniting ourselves with God and with one another through this sacramental meal.

Worshiping at First Presbyterian Church

Worship is central to the life of First Presbyterian Church. Worship brings us together and worship sends out into the world. Worship gives us the opportunity to express the joy we have in God and allows us to deepen that joy together as God’s people.

What to Expect

First Presbyterian Church is a “come as you are” congregation. You’ll find people dressed in jeans as well in their “Sunday Best” at either service. So feel free to join us how you most feel comfortable worshiping.

Two designated visitor parking spots are available on Main Street in front of the church.  The main parking lot is south of the Williams Education Building, and can be entered from Main, 9th, or Center Streets.  Handicapped parking spots are available in the parking lot, and the sanctuary is accessible via a ramp on the south side of the building.  Entrances to the main building are located on the east, south, and west.  Once inside the building, you will be greeted by an usher who can answer any questions you may have.

We love children and youth at First Presbyterian Church and believe it is important for families to worship together. We involve our children and youth in worship in a variety of ways. We also have a nursery available for infants and toddlers and many of our younger children will take advantage of the nursery following the children’s sermon during worship. The nursery is located in the east wing of the main building, easily accessible from the sanctuary.  Of course, children of all ages are welcome to stay with their families during the service. Worship notebooks with activity pages are available at each entryway to the sanctuary.

During the 9:00 and 11:00 services, all (including children) are invited to the Lord’s Table to receive Communion, which is served by intinction. Congregants proceed as directed by the ushers to receive the bread (gluten-free bread is available), which they then dip into the chalice of either wine or grape juice.

The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is not just for Presbyterians or “members of the church.” All who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are invited to partake of the Lord’s Supper. Access to the Table is not a right conferred upon the worthy but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love.

You are Welcome!

You will find the people at First Presbyterian Church to be friendly and welcoming. We share a great deal of love for one another and you will find the same kind of love extended to you when you join us on a Sunday morning.
