Traditional Worship at First Presbyterian

Traditional Worship


Choir during traditional worship services

Sunday morning services are traditional worship experiences at First Presbyterian Church.  Services follow a Presbyterian worship order and provide inspired opportunities for the congregation through prayer, music, Bible readings and messages.

During our regular schedule, music is the one difference between the morning services. Special music is featured at the 8:30 a.m. service and our choir leads the music at the 10:45 a.m. service. Try both and see how each can feed your faith.

Following the 8:30 and 10:45 a.m. services, please join us for cookies, coffee and fellowship in Knox Hall.  It's a great opportunity to meet all the wonderful people at First Presbyterian. If you're a first-time visitor, please stop by the "Welcome Station" so that we can properly greet you and give you a welcome gift.

Children and Worship

Our church family welcomes children in worship and supports their learning in a variety of ways.

There are color and activity sheets provided each week at three levels (preschool, early elementary and older elementary). These sheets follow the Scripture lessons or relate to specific seasons of the church. The sheets and a basket of crayons and colored pencils are located just outside the sanctuary near the coat rack in Knox Hall.

Children's message during traditional worship servicesThe "Time for Children" is another way that children can participate in worship. Early in the service, children are invited to come to the front of the sanctuary to share in a lesson that focuses on one of the Scriptures of the day or a seasonal topic (for example:  What is Lent?).

Following the “Time for Children,” some families choose to keep their children with them during worship, while others take their children to the nursery. Either approach is totally acceptable. The little noises of children remind us that Jesus loved children and that the kingdom of God belongs to those who are like little children!
