Worship This Week
Why are we here? Our 2020 Lenten Theme at First Pres asks that very question. And yet, our global predicament leaves us answering the question, why we are not here? Our family of faith gathers this Sunday — but in a virtual way. As you listen by radio, computer, or cell phone, we recognize that we are not here — together because we are following government orders and guidelines about illness and disease. But dear friends, you are here, with us. Our great God has given us the Holy Spirit. As painful as it is to be physically apart, we are still together, we are still united by the One God who brings our hearts and spirits together in worship .
Join us Sunday at 11:00 a.m. via radio broadcast on WAAM (1600 AM) and on the web (www.waamradio.com/).
Free podcasts (audio) and printed copies of sermons by our pastors are also available. Visit our "Sermons" page to view or listen to a sermon.
Worship bulletins are available from the ushers during service times. Feel free to take them home with you. Large print bulletins, Bibles, and hearing assistance devices are also available from the ushers. Previous bulletins may also be found on our "Bulletins" page.
First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor typically offers three services at 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and offers Family Sundays approximately once a month when children are encouraged to worship with their families.
In the fall, the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services are typically held in the Sanctuary, with the 8:00 a.m. service is in a more intimate setting, Monteith Hall. Our services include music, preaching, readings of Scripture, and prayer. In the summer, the 9:30 a.m. worship service is typcially held outside, weather permitting.
Visit our "Sunday Services" page for more information on service times and dates, including any upcoming special or holiday services.
Communion is celebrated weekly at the 8:00 a.m. service, and approximately once a month, usually the first Sunday of the month, at the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services. On those first Sundays, we invite all to bring nonperishable food items to share with those in need in our community. The food is collected in baskets as you enter, or brought down on the final hymn of each worship service. Each month, food is donated to a local food bank.
Radio Worship is broadcast at 11:00 a.m. on WAAM (1600 AM) and on the web (www.waamradio.com/).
