Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless God’s holy name….Enter God’s gates with thanksgiving and courts with praise!
At First Presbyterian, we make weekly worship a priority. People use words like these to describe our worship: beautiful, joyful, reverent, uplifting and prayerful. Choral music and congregational singing contribute greatly to our worship as does the weekly sermon which is based on Scripture and connects the ancient sacred world of the Bible with our modern, everyday lives. We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month and the Sacrament of Baptism upon request.
Most Sundays we worship in the chapel at 8:30 and the main Sanctuary at 11:00 am, with a Sunday school hour in between for children youth and adults. In the summer (June through Labor Day) we worship in the sanctuary at 9:30 am.
The chapel entrance is on the Pacific Avenue side of our campus.
The sanctuary entrance is on 36th Street.
Parking is available in our large lot located one-half block north of 36th Street, between Pacific Avenue and Sea Pines Road
WHAT TO WEAR:
How people dress for worship is entirely up to them. Many people dress up for worship, but some prefer “business casual.” Some people dress more casually in the summer.
CHILDREN IN WORSHIP:
At First Presbyterian we believe in raising children who are comfortable with our faith traditions and worship practices, therefore, we welcome all God’s children to attend worship. Additionally, we offer a professionally staffed nursery for babies and a program called “Wonders of Worship” for children from 4 years old through 2nd grade.
