When is worship?

8:33AM: Contemporary Worship is held in the fellowship hall of the Activities Building, with music led by our praise team and a message from our pastor. Communion, open to all, is celebrated every Sunday.  

11:00AM: Traditional Worship is held in the sanctuary, led by the Chancel Choir and Ministerial Staff. Soloists, the handbell choir, youth chorale and children's choir are regular features.  Communion, open to all, is celebrated at least once each quarter. Unable to attend?  Link to our live audio stream of Sunday morning worship at fpclive.com.

We occasionally have special services and holiday services at 10:00am. Worship during summer months begins at 10:00am. Check the church calendar for updates. 

What should I wear?

We are here to worship God and you are welcomed just as you are, but if blending in is your goal, worshipers at our early service tend to be more casual, with many of the men forgoing their tie, or perhaps in a polo. At the traditional service you will see more dresses, coats and ties. Whatever your choice, please know we welcome you to worship with us.  

What if I have kids?

Infants and Toddlers: A caring staff member and parent-volunteers provide nursery care during the 8:30 and 11:00 worship services as well as Sunday School for all infants and toddlers.  The nursery is located in Room 103. 

Preschoolers Children ages 2-4 are invited to participate in worship at both services.  Children's Worship Packets are available.  After the Time with the Children at both worship services, children ages 2 - 4 go with a church volunteer for a special Bible lesson time.  During 8:30 a.m. worship, children return to their parents to participate in our weekly Communion.

Sermon Archives are available as pdf documents and podcasts.
