Sunday Services

General Worship Schedule

8:00 a.m. in Monteith Hall
9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

During the school year, 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. 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.

This Fall We CULTIVATE...

To cultivate means to actively prepare for planting. It also means to acquire or develop new qualities, sentiments and skills. As we welcome new ministers in residency, music, and youth, as well as an interim head-of-staff in October, all of us are cultivating new ways of being together as we integrate our various gifts into the service of Christ and the community.

Each week starting Labor Day weekend and ending in November, we will focus on a different aspect of our culture in Christ. We will cultivate our labors, our community, our creations, our campus and our talents in Christ. As you experience all that First Pres offers, how might you join us in our Christ-led cultivation?
