ABOUT SUNDAY MORNINGS
Sunday morning schedule includes:
9;00 Sunday School for all ages
10:00 Fellowship time in Grace Hall (snacks available)
For Children: All infants and children are welcome to sit with their parents during the worship service. For those parents who prefer, a Nursery is available for infants and children through 3 years old. It is located in Room 213 on the same level as the Sanctuary and is staffed by experienced and caring adults. Children's worship is also available for children in 4K-2nd grade. Children are dismissed with experienced volunteers after the Children's Sermon and may be picked up in the Family and Youth Room just outside the Sanctuary following the service.
Sunday School: Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:00 a.m. There are seven different classes for Adults, 4 classes for children, and one for youth. See the Sunday School page on this website for more information on location and topics for each class.
Baptism and Communion: In the PC(USA) we recognize two sacraments--Baptism (which is available to children and adults) and Holy Communion, also known as the Lord's Supper.
Baptism signifies God's grace that reaches for us before we ever reach for it, and is a mark of belonging to the family of faith. It occurs when an adult who has never been baptized previously or the parents of an infant or child who has not been baptized previously requests the sacrament. Each request is approved by the pastor and session and dates for Baptism are scheduled based on the one being baptized's availability.
Each year the session approves Holy Communion to be served, on average, once a month. This meal is not only a reminder of Christ's supper with his disciples on the night he was betrayed and arrested, but also a visible means of grace, in which Christ's followers today are nurtured and strengthened. At the table we experience Christ's presence and are called to share the gifts of God with others.
