Worship is at the very heart of the church’s life. All that the church is and does is rooted in its worship. The community of faith, gathered in response to God’s call, is formed in its worship.  Worship is the principal influence that shapes our faith and is the most visible way we express the faith.  In worship, through Word and Sacrament, the church is sustained by the presence of Christ.  Joined in worship to the One who is the source of its life, the church is empowered to serve God in the world.

Rooted Sermon Series

Worship with us this May through August as we dig deeper into who and what we are "Rooted" in! 

From Jesus’ “Parable of the Sower” to his bold declaration of “I AM the Vine… Abide with Me” we are reminded of the essential role roots play in our faith.  Without good roots, we are unable to gain the nutrients needed to build a healthy trunk, sprout healthy branches, or produce ripe fruit.  What we are rooted in and how well we are rooted in reveals a great deal of who we are, not only individually, but together as God’s church.  We are called to be “Rooted” in the power of God, relationships, love, joy, grace, peace, generosity, worship, and faith, to name a few.


Join Pastor Peter's "At the Plate" class for a virtual Spiritual Growth opportunity through Zoom. Contact him at peter@fpcly.org if you are interested in joining! We will reflect on and dig deeper into the previous week's "Rooted" sermon.  All are welcome whether you were able to hear the sermon or not!

Contact the church office at info@fpcly.org for the login information!

New to Zoom? We have two "tutorial" video resources you can watch!

  1. Tutorial by Geeks on Tour, How do I join a Zoom meeting?
  2. Zoom Tutorial by Anthony Diehl, "Getting Connected to your First Zoom Meeting"

If you miss a Sunday, our services will be shared on our YouTube channel FPC Lynchburg!

Infants and Children

All children are welcome at FPC… no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

  • Nursery (Sunday mornings during Spiritual Growth classes and Worship) is available for infants and toddlers downstairs on the Ground Floor. Staff and volunteers will be there to greet you and help you in any way needed.
  • If children are attending worship, please visit the Spiritual Growth Worship Cart, which can be found in the Narthex just before you enter the Sanctuary. It has books, tools to help memorization, puzzles, and other educational items available to all children during Worship!

During worship, following the Children’s Moment, there are two different educational opportunities for children.  These opportunities are to help children learn about worship elements, become familiar with Bible stories and characters, and develop spiritually in an engaging, age-appropriate way. All children are brought back to the Narthex following Worship, unless otherwise noted.

  • Worship Workshop is for 3- & 4-year-olds and meets in Room 9 on the Ground Floor.
  • Gateways to Worship is for Kindergartners and 1st graders and meets in the Library on the Main Level.
