Who We Are

Worship at First Presbyterian Church

“Christian worship joyfully ascribes all praise and honor, glory and power to the triune God.  In worship the people of God acknowledge God present in the world and in their lives.  As they respond to God’s claim and redemptive action in Jesus Christ, believers are transformed and renewed.  In worship the faithful offer themselves to God and are equipped for God’s service in the world.”

Worship is the heartbeat of life at First Presbyterian Church.  In worship, we gather together to encounter the living God.  Through the Word proclaimed, we hear God’s call to new life – a life lived in relationship with God and neighbor.  As we are reminded that we have been touched by God’s loving kindness, made known in so many ways, but most clearly expressed in the gift of Jesus Christ, we give thanks to God and celebrate God’s grace.  Through different styles of music and liturgy, we join hearts and voices in proclaiming the greatness of God and find ourselves strengthened for the journey of faith and discipleship.
