Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy. For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth. -Psalm 1
Sunday Worship at Fairplain Presbyterian Church is at 9:30 am.
If you’re used to a “songs-and-sermon” service, this might be a little different.
Our worship is in the Reformed tradition. We have a responsive call to worship, confession of sins, and passing of the peace (you just say “Peace be with you” or “The peace of Christ” to people). We sing hymns old and new, hear music from our talented musicians and choir, read at least two passages from scripture, and hear a sermon.
Then we share joys and concerns and pray the Lord’s Prayer together (it’s on the screen if you don’t know it). We end our services with a blessing from the pastor and a closing hymn.
We love the noises children make in worship, but a nursery attendant is available if you find that managing your child distracts you more than you would like. Our pastor’s kids (2 and 4) would be delighted to make new friends.
We usually celebrate the Lord’s Supper the first Sunday of each month and at special worship services through the year. All who come to the table are offered the bread and cup, regardless of their age or understanding.
