Worship

Being a part of a family implies spending time with that family. It is in worship that we connect with God and with one another. In other words, worshiping together is a step towards being a closer, welcoming family and developing a thriving community of faith. Join us at 10:30 am for weekly Sunday worship. If you wish to be a part of the Worship Committee, contact Committee Chair, Kevin Tobosa at kevin@tobosa.com.

Children in worship: Here at FPC, we believe that having small children and infants in worship is like having children at the dinner table. They are here because they are part of the family, not because their manners are perfect. They learn how to worship by doing, and you would be surprised at what children learn simply by osmosis. We welcome the wiggle! Activity bags for children are located at both entrances and if you feel a need to step out for a moment, the service is broadcast on the screens in the Gathering Space and Foyer, or if you need a little quiet, try the Jennie Roberts room or the nursery for children up to 3 years.

 

Ushers

A great usher has an ability to greet others with a smile, hand them a bulletin and assist if needed in finding them a place to sit. Ushers also help in the collection of the offering each week. Ushers are needed on Sundays as well as other special worship services. If this interests you, or if you have questions, please contact Cynthia Baumgardner at cynthiab@cableone.net.

Scripture Readers

A love of words and reading aloud equips anyone to assist in the reading of God’s Word. Youth and adults are encouraged to participate. If you would like to volunteer as a scripture reader, please contact Jean Pladson at jeanpladson@gmail.com.

Sound & Camera Technicians

People with a love of electronics and technology can contribute to worship by operating the sound system for occasional worship services, as part of a rotating team. If you would like to volunteer as a technician, please contact Joe Cusher at jcusher@ideaone.net.

Communion Servers

Anyone who has ever been ordained as an elder or deacon in ANY Presbyterian church, or has been approved by Session, is welcome to help serve Holy Communion, which is served monthly as well as at a few special services each year. Servers help with the set up ahead of time, and/or the distribution of the elements during worship. This is coordinated through the worship committee. Servers can volunteer to help on particular months as it fits their schedules, or be added to the list to be called on as needed. For questions or to volunteer, please contact Cynthia Baumgardner at cynthiab@cableone.net.

Sanctuary Decorating

As much as music and liturgy are part of our worship, so are the visual symbols that adorn our sanctuary. The Worship Committee is in charge of maintaining our paraments and decorations as well as ordering and arranging flowers for special services such as Easter and Christmas. This is wonderful work that really puts us in the spirit of the season and creates a deep connection to the liturgical calendar all year round.

Home Communion

If you or a loved one is unable to attend worship and would like to receive communion at home, contact a deacon or Pastor Mary. The bread and juice are taken from the communion table and brought to our members.  We are ready and eager to serve you.
