The public worship of God is the central act of the church. Through hymns and anthems, the reading and interpretation of the Scriptures, prayers, sermons, and the sacraments we celebrate God’s goodness and seek to understand God’s challenge to us both individually and corporately. As the worship service closes, we are sent out into the world to serve in a variety of ways, using the multitude of gifts God has given us.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is served on all of the feast and festival days (Christmas, Baptism of the Lord, Transfiguration, Maundy Thursday, Easter, Pentecost, Trinity, World Communion, All Saints, Reign of Christ) as well as the six Sundays during Lent, the four Sundays of Advent, and once a month in the summer. On most occasions we receive communion by intinction which means that worshipers are invited to break a piece of bread from the loaf and dip the bread in the chalice as we “feed upon Christ in our hearts and are strengthened” for the work to which God calls us.
Presbyterians believe in an open table, at which all Christians are welcome. Baptized children who have instruction in the meaning of communion and the permission of parents may participate in the sacrament.
The Sacrament of Baptism is administered in a public worship service to the children of members. Adults may also receive baptism when joining the church and professing faith for the first time. Those wishing to be baptized should make an appointment with the pastor to talk about the meaning of baptism. Baptism may be celebrated on any Sunday of the year except the Sundays during Lent.
