Sunday Worship

You are always welcome here at United Presbyterian Church.  Please join us on a Sunday morning.  We offer an education hour at 9:00am (Sept.-May), a service of worship at 10:00am, and a fellowship hour following the service.   For more information about church lifemusic, or sermons, click on the links or visit our YouTube and Facebook pages.  

If you are a family with children, there are many ways to get involved on a Sunday morning.  Everyone, including the children, meets in the sanctuary at 10:00am for worship to participate in the call to worship, a congregational song, confession and assurance, and a time for Young Disciples.  Then the children are led upstairs for Children's Rotation Enrichment Classes.  Parents can pick up their children after the service in the Rotation room and are welcome to stay for Fellowship hour in the Fellowship Hall where cookies (baked fresh by our very own Dough-Boys!), coffee, and other refreshments are served. If you are visiting, someone would be happy to show you where to go and give you a tour of the church.

Worship at United Presbyterian Church

United Presbyterian Church is an inter-generational community committed to proclaiming and participating in the good news of the Gospel through communal worship.  During our worship services, we participate in a liturgy consisting of prayers, songs, Scripture readings, space to experience God, creeds, stories, and opportunities to hear God’s Word through preaching.  These liturgical patterns we experience as a community in worship help shape our identity as Christ-followers in the world which we are called to serve. 

 The term liturgy (leitourgia in Greek) originally described a “public duty” or a “work of the people.”  At United Presbyterian Church, worship (or liturgy) is not a performance and does not seek to entertain or impress an audience.  Relevancy in our context is not measured by conforming to the latest trends; instead it measures the extent to which the communal worship speaks into our individual lives and transforms us into the image of Christ as we become nurtured in our identities as a worshipping family.  As a result, worship is a participatory event performed by all of those gathered.  This is represented not only in the way we worship, but by the types of resources and music we use in worship.  We use traditional and ecumenical prayers, songs, and creeds every week (the Gloria Patri, Apostle’s Creed, the Doxology, and the Lord’s Prayer), we participate in a weekly pattern of gathering, confession, being assured of God’s grace, hearing God’s Word, giving thanks through offering, and being sent out into the world to be the work of Christ for all people.  We take communion on the first Sunday of each month and regularly baptize children and adults throughout the year.
