Worship

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.

SUNDAY SCHEDULE: We look forward to worshiping with you in person on Sundays at our 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. services in the sanctuary. Our service is also offered online. Sunday school for all ages begins at 9:45am, and nursery is offered for children up to age 4 for all worship services.

LOCATION:
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 5 years old through 5th grade. During WOW, as we call it, children participate in Godly Play, a hands-on curriculum for kids that helps them learn more about worship traditions, Scripture, and God’s love for them.

Nursery Times & Information

Ministry to our youngest children provides opportunities for them to be loved and nurtured by trained childcare givers and volunteers. We offer a warm and safe atmosphere in our nursery for children to learn, live and grow in our Christian faith from the moment of birth.

Accessibility in Worship

To assist you in your worship participation, large print hymnal editions and hearing loops (sanctuary only) are available. To use the hearing loop, activate your T-Coil or ask for a T-Coil headset if your device does not have one built in. Please request these items from an usher and return the hymnals and hearing devices to the Narthex following the service..
