The center of our life together at First Pres is worship.
When we come together into the presence of God, we allow ourselves to be drawn into a Holiness so much bigger than we are. As we worship together, we learn more about who God is, and who we are—and, even more importantly, whom God is calling and equipping us to be. We welcome all people to a warm, Christ-centered worship services at a variety of times during the month.
During the summer, we have one service at 10 a.m. We also offer Playground Church that runs concurrent to the worship service in the Sanctuary for children, families and the young at heart.
You may also join us via livestream every Sunday at 10:00 AM.
Sunday Worship, 10:00 AM in the First Pres Sanctuary or online
Our Sunday Worship Service is held in the sanctuary. As you sit under the beauty of the Tiffany windows, let the beautiful music lift your spirit. The sounds of the glorious Casavant organ and congregational musicians singing praises to God with historic and more recent hymns. The preaching connects Scripture with our daily lives and contemporary issues. The joys and concerns of worshipers are lifted up in prayer together. Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month and baptisms are often celebrated on the second Sunday of each month.
Taize Prayer Service, Wednesday 7:00 PM Online only this summer
An intimate worship experience when we can step back from everyday life to be refreshed and encounter God in the silence. Without preaching or teaching, this is a gracefully simple service of contemplation in a prayerful setting, with scripture, prayer, song, silence, and light. Every Wednesday at 7:00 PM online via our different online platforms.
Childcare is not offered at the moment due to safety guidelines in response to the pandemic.
Professional, loving childcare is available in the nursery every Sunday morning for infants and toddlers up to 36 months old. The nursery is a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate space for children to begin experiencing God’s love through the care of our church family. Parents are invited to leave a mobile phone number with our caregivers so they can be notified if their children need them. Please note that we do not provide snacks.
