Sunday Morning Worship
Every Sunday morning at 11 am, FPC offers a worship service that is Christ-centered, largely traditional, and alive. Our main purpose when we gather for worship is to glorify God and give God praise. We use liturgical and contemporary elements.
Every first Sunday we celebrate the sacrament of Communion. We practice "open communion" -- all who are baptized and claim Jesus as Savior and Lord are invited to join us. The elders bring the elements -- first the bread and then the fruit of the vine -- to the pews.
On Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve, worshipers who are able come forward to receive the elements by intinction.
The Sacrament of Baptism is administered, as requested, to believers (and their children) who have not previously received Trinitarian baptism, that is, "in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."
We do not rebaptize. We believe in one baptism.
While Presbyterians traditionally baptize by "sprinkling", we will, when requested, baptize by immersion or effusion.
Prayer for Healing and Wholeness
Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. – James 5.14
On the first Sunday of each month at the close of worship, we hold brief, simple, and dignified prayer for healing and wholeness. Any who seek the Lord's healing for a physical illness, spiritual or emotional need are invited to the foot of the cross at the close of worship where our pastor and elders pray and anoint with oil.
