Worship


Worshipfrom balcony

Worship plays a central role in the life of First Church.  Our faith community worships together each Sunday at 10:30 a.m..  Our service is centered on the liturgical pattern of Word and Table, an approach that helps us experience the mystery of God’s saving love and helps us apply that love in today’s world.  We invite you to visit First Church and experience worship for yourself.


Pre-registration is required for in-person services. Save your spot here.

Services

We gather for worship at 10:30 a.m. all year.  Our typical pattern includes worship in the sanctuary from September to early June and in air-conditioned Tittle Chapel during the summer months.

During the pandemic Virtual Worship is streamed each week via YouTube and Facebook on Sundays beginning at 10:30 a.m.

May 16 In-Person Worship bulletin

From Easter through May 30, 2021 we are offering In-Person Worship on Sundays at 9:45 a.m.  This 30-minute service includes prayer, music, and a sermon.  Reservations are recommended; walk ins are accommodated if we have not reached capacity.

Worship in the Park

Worship in the Park (WIP) is an informal, come-as-you-are summer worship service at 9:00 a.m. in Lunt Park, just a block away. During WIP, children are invited to participate in a pull-out program to explore the day’s message through hands-on activities in another part of the park.

Communion

We celebrate communion monthly during 10:30 a.m. worship and at Worship in the Park and on other liturgical holidays. For those who wish to receive communion weekly, on the other Sundays we offer a brief service at 11:45 a.m. in Tittle Chapel.  (Note the communion has been suspended during COVID.)

In addition to Sunday worship and the weekly communion services, First Church offers worship on Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week.
