What can I expect?
Join us for traditional worship, biblical teaching, and authentic community. The liturgy for our services includes traditional Presbyterian creeds; prayers of confession, intercession, and thanksgiving; anthems; and well-known hymns of the church. Music at our services include an organ, typically a full choir, and regular features by our handbell choir and orchestral instruments.
Where do I park?
Parking is also available on Sundays in the municipal parking deck located on W. Morgan Street, between N. Dawson and S. McDowell Streets.
What if I have kids?
At First Pres, we love kids! In fact, we consider ministry to children to be an essential part of our church’s overall mission. Our children’s program provides a loving, safe, and age-appropriate environment for your children!
Nursery and childcare is offered during both our Church School hour and our worship services in the Stock Building. A sermon for young children is presented halfway through the 11:00 a.m. service. Children ages 5 through second grade who wish to participate in Children’s Church are escorted to the Edge Lobby by an adult volunteer after the Children’s Sermon and return to the sanctuary during the hymn that follows the sermon.
Where do I go if I'm new?
Do you serve communion?
Communion is offered once each quarter during Sunday worship, as well as during liturgical events such as: the Maundy Thursday evening service and the 11:00 p.m. Christmas Eve service. Communion is offered to all professing Christians in attendance, regardless of denomination.
