Elements of Worship
Our Liturgical Worship Service includes many traditional Presbyterian elements reflecting five actions centered on the Word of God: (1) Gathering Around the Word, (2) Proclaiming the Word, (3) Responding to the Word, (4) The Sealing of the Word, and (5) Bearing and Following the Word into the World.

Gathering Around the Word: Sacramental Remembrance, Choral Introit, Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Assurance of Pardon, Gloria Patri, and selected Hymns.

Proclaiming the Word: Scripture Readings, Choral Anthem, Children's Moment, and the Sermon.

Responding to the Word: an Affirmation of Faith, Baptism, Giving His Tithes and Our Offerings, Doxology, Prayers of Dedication and Supplication, the Lord's Prayer, and selected Hymns.

The Sealing of the Word: the Lord's Supper - Invitation to the Table, Great Thanksgiving, Words of Institution, and Sharing of the Bread and Cup. We share in communion on the first Sunday of each month and/or special occasions.

Bearing and Following the Word into the World: a Benediction and Response in song.

Worship in Music
All Men's Choir on Father's Day
We have a full adult Chancel Choir led by our Director of Music. They offer special music such as the Introit and Anthem each Sunday. Hymns are sung out of one of our two pew hymnals, The Hymnal for Worship & Celebration and Sing the Faith. The selections usually emphasize the theme of the Scripture and sermon. Occasionally, we have our Children's Choir, Handbell Choir, or Ensembles join us in worship. Our Organist accompanies on the full pipe organ or piano.

Liturgical Colors
In recent decades, it has been customary for Presbyterian congregations to vest their clergy with stoles and other vestments, and to adorn their worship spaces with paraments, banners, and other textiles in colors that are traditional to the days and seasons of the liturgical calendar. Advent and Lent are periods of preparation and repentance and are represented by the color
PURPLE. During Holy Week, the church may use purple or remain bare. WHITE is used to represent the feasts of Christmas Day and Christmastide, Epiphany Sunday, Baptism of the Lord Sunday, Transfiguration Sunday, Easter Season, Trinity Sunday, Christ the King Sunday, and Communion Sundays. GREEN is the color for periods of Ordinary Time. RED is for Pentecost Sunday, but may also be used for ordinations, and church anniversaries.
