Read our letter to the congregation about postponing onsite worship until august 30

Online worship at First Presbyterian unites the best elements of our traditional and contemporary worship services. Below is a brief description of our on-site services prior to the pandemic:

9:30am Sunday

The Offering

The Offering worship gathering exists to praise the name of Jesus, teach the word of God, challenge believers and seekers alike, and move all to act in service and love. This fall, The Offering service begins at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings.

While you are there you will find:

  • A warm, hospitable environment

  • Songs of praise, confession, and hope led by our Offering band

  • An opportunity to learn from, and be challenged by, the word of God through Bible-based preaching

  • Holy Communion by intinction (dipping a piece of communion bread into a chalice of grape juice) on the first Sunday of each month


Children are welcome to stay and participate for the full worship service or may attend a class after our time of singing. Dress is casual and comfortable.  We look forward to meeting you at The Offering!

Traditional Service

11:00am Sunday

The traditional worship service is at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary and is led by our pastoral staff, our Chancel Choir, and the Middlebush Pipe Organ. The congregation sings hymns from Glory to God, the Presbyterian Hymnal. Children are welcome to stay for the entire service, or go to Sunday school after the children's sermon. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

The sanctuary features stained glass windows along the side aisles with symbols that represent different vocations and walks of life. We turn from our secular work to enter the sanctuary to praise God, and return to our vocations to serve God. A beautiful chancel mosaic highlights a 30-feet-tall cross standing before it. The cross and mosaic inspire the worshipper to follow Jesus Christ, our crucified and risen Lord.
