Our Worship Service

The Sunday morning worship service of First Presbyterian Church is distinctly a worship service. Our desire is to praise the Lord of the universe, and to do so with the respect He is worthy to receive. Our reverence reflects the glory and majesty of God.
Our services, however, are far from dower, passive events.  Our worship service offers praises which definitively reflect a heartfelt passion for God’s glory. The splendor of the Blucher memorial pipe organ blends with the joyful sounds of our concert grand piano, the chancel choir, special music and congregational singing, This worship fills our spirits with joy and gladness for our God.
Sunday morning sermons are designed to open God’s Word, revealing the person of Jesus for learning, inspiration and practical application. You will leave our services enriched and blessed.

 The Chancel Choir

First Presbyterian’s Chancel Choir provides spiritual enrichment to our Sunday morning worship service. Its beautiful music deepens and enhances our experience with God as we draw near to him in glorious praise.
This beautiful music doesn’t happen by accident. Talented church members, supplemented by gifted students, come together each Wednesday from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. to blend their voices under the direction of our Director of Music Roy Daniels. Some of our members have been with the choir for over twenty years.  Having the Blucher family organ and grand piano available supplements our choir’s musical talents.
Roy invites everyone in our congregation who enjoys singing to come to the Wednesday night practices and give it a try. You don’t need an extensive musical background. You can learn from the other choir members, and receive special training from Roy if desired. Although practice is not always easy, they are greatly rewarding. You will experience real accomplishment with each improvement in your musical abilities.
If you want to “make a joyful noise” but absolutely cannot sing, Roy suggests that you join our hand bell choir at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. You don’t have to be able to read music for the hand bells; but, according to Roy, you do have to be able to count to four. 
We celebrate our music program at First Presbyterian Church and encourage everyone to consider participating in our Chancel Choir or hand bell activities.
