We understand that God, most importantly, calls us to glorify God and enjoy our Lord forever. We accomplish this through the act of worship. Each week we gather to praise our creator, to confess our sins, to rejoice in God’s grace, to hear His word read and proclaimed, and to respond as faithful people of God who go out to share the Good News with others.
As a part of the reformed church, we recognize the centrality that worship should have in our Christian life. We also profess that this cannot be done alone but requires all members of the body to come together. Choir, ministers, and congregation join together in the drama of worship, remembering that in worship, we are the performers while God is the audience. Each week we bring only our best in offering to our Lord.
The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is celebrated every week in the Chapel Worship and on the first Sunday of even-numbered months (six times during the calendar year) and at selected special occasions in the Sanctuary Worship. Communion is open to all believers who profess a belief in Jesus Christ and is administered by the pastors and elders (men and women called by God to be spiritual leaders) of the congregation.
Special Worship Services are scheduled over the course of the Church liturgical year. These include an evening Ash Wednesday service at the beginning of Lent, the Maundy Thursday Service of Tenebrae, an evening service each Wednesday during Advent, and two services on Christmas Eve: an early evening service for children and families and the traditional candlelight communion service at 11:00 p.m.
Music is an integral part of worship at First Presbyterian Church. The Chancel Choir leads the congregation in the singing of hymns and proclaims in song the Word of God through anthems chosen primarily from the traditional/classical repertoire. Music is chosen specifically to illumine the scripture passages for each week often taken from the Common Lectionary (readings posted above on this page). The music of worship furthers the prayer life of the church as well as helping us meet our Lord.
