With members living across a major metropolitan area, Sunday morning worship is the central part of congregational life. We welcome young and old, traditional and non-traditional families and children to worship.
We have two worship services and they are very different from one another.
The 8:45 a.m. service, held in Palmer Hall, is intimate and less formal than the sanctuary service. All of the music is sung by those in attendance and is accompanied on the piano or by acoustic guitars, sometimes joined by flute or violin or upright bass. Every service includes a sermon and communion. Parents with young children particularly enjoy this service because it is short (45 minutes) and the music and liturgy are accessible to children.
The 11 a.m. service (10 a.m. in the summer) is held in the sanctuary and represents traditional Presbyterian worship at its best. The setting is beautiful and grand, the choir and ministers wear robes, the organ is played with power and passion, the choir offers anthems in a variety of styles, hymns are sung. A family table in the front of the sanctuary engages young children in a variety of activities that connect to that day’s worship. The sermons and music weave together to create meaningful experience and help those gathered draw closer to God.
