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.

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. 

Hearing impaired? Sensitive vision?

In the Narthex, we have hearing devices, as well as large-print bulletins and hymnals, available. Any usher will be happy to assist you.
