What to Expect

 

Sunday Worship is from 9:30-10:30am, followed by refreshments in the courtyard or Fellowship Hall, and from 11:00am-12:00pm we have Sunday classes for both children and adults.

 

When you enter the church through the front or side doors you will be in the Narthex, a small area where people can greet each other, take off coats, etc.

 

At the front door, there should be some friendly people (we call them "greeters") to say hello, answer any questions you have, and direct you to seating in the Sanctuary. We have name tags available, and we encourage both members and non-members to wear them. The purpose of these nametags is not to single you out, but to make it easier for you to meet people and remember names.

 

If you have infants or children they are welcome to join you in the worship service. If your child becomes uncomfortable or needs a change in scenery, our nursery is equipped with closed-circuit TV or you can recieve a pager from one of our wonderful nursery attendants.  Just ask one of the greeters and they can direct you to the nursery.

 

Part way through the service all children from 4 years through 3rd grade will be invited to attend an optional "Children's Church" in a setting that will prepare them for the "Big Church". They will learn to worship and praise God with age appropriate activities such as puppetry, drama and story telling, so that the essential elements of Christian worship become more meaningful. Children will start the worship hour at 9:30am with their parents in the Sanctuary, and then those who wish will be escorted by a Children's Ministry team member to Room 201 until about 11:00 am.

 

Communion

We serve Communion on the first Sunday of every month. In the Presbyterian Church, the Lord’s Table is open to all baptized Christian believers, no matter your denomination. The requirement for baptism most often is an issue for children, who may not yet be baptized. If your child is expressing a desire to receive communion, but has not been baptized yet, now would be a good time for a conversation about their faith in Jesus Christ.
