First Pres Service-109

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.

Services

Due to COVID-19 and stay-at-home orders, in-person worship services are temporarily suspended. Please join us for our live-streamed worship services every Sunday at 10:00 AM on Vimeo or Facebook Live.

The 9:00 and 11:00 traditional services are 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 leads the congregation to sing 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. The 9:00 am service is larger and includes a Time for Children and a full choir each week, while the 11:00 am often features soloists. Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month and baptisms are often celebrated on the second Sunday of each month. Fellowship is offered in the Great Room after both services.

During the summer months, one 10:00 am traditional service is held in the sanctuary. Children worship on the Playground, gathering around for lessons which help them understand God’s love for them and the world, while others meet in the sanctuary for worship which is alternately led by the summer choir and soloists. Fellowship is held afterwards in the Great Room.

The Third Thursday Taize Service is 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. From 6:30 to 7:00 pm (on the third Thursdays of each month between September and May) in the Chapel.
