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.
Sunday Worship, 9:30 AM
in the First Pres Sanctuary or online
The 9:30 AM Sunday service features a predominantly traditional musical offering with the Organ and Sanctuary Choir.
Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month and baptisms are often celebrated on the second Sunday of each month.
Childcare is provided.
Additional parking is available at Lake Forest College (Durand Art Institute) and the History Center (Deerpath and Washington).
Children's Faith Building & Childcare
Children start the morning in worship with their families and leave for Faith Building in the upstairs classrooms following a blessing. On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of the month), children return to the Sanctuary to join their families for Communion.
Professional, loving childcare is available every Sunday morning. The nursery, located on the 2nd floor, is open 15 minutes before worship begins and is 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.
