Sundays

First Presbyterian has two worship services on most Sunday mornings. 

8:30 a.m.—Morning Song Service

Morning Song is an informal service held in Pope Hall in the winter and on the rooftop garden in the summer. Morning Song is a participatory service for all ages, with special participation by the children and youth of the church. Modern music reflects the informal spirit of the service. 

11:00 a.m.—Worship Service

A classic service is held in our historic sanctuary at 11:00 a.m.  The lively cadence of the service also offers contemplative moments. Music reflects a broad space of spiritual music styles.

A short prayer service is followed by coffee time with a far ranging discussion. The prayer service is built around the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship (Daily Prayer) and includes the lectionary readings for the coming Sunday, intercessory prayers and times of silence.
