REGULAR -Sunday Worship Service
Sunday worship begins at 11 a.m. Children of all ages are welcomed at all worship services, and children's sermons are a regular part of morning worship. A nursery is available for infants and toddlers for the entire service, and Children's Church for preschool through second grade is available following the children's sermon.
Special services are held on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve. Some of these services are planned with other churches in the community.
Summer Sunday Schedule Begins Next Month, June 3
Heads up! The Session has approved the following summer Sunday morning schedule for June 3 through August 26:
9:00 a.m. – Sunday School
10:00 a.m. – Worship
(There will be no Children’s Church during worship over the summer months, but the Nursery age limit will be extended to children up to age 5.)
Communion is celebrated every Sunday morning. Special communion services are celebrated on Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve. Communion is open to all baptized persons.
By contacting the pastor or the church office, arrangements will be made to provide communion to those who are confined to their home, to a nursing home, or to the hospital.
The Sacrament of Baptism is administered to adults making their profession of faith and to infants based on the faith of their parents. The child will then make a profession of faith after participating in a confirmation class and being received by the Session.
Our church's music program has a long tradition of leading worship. Three vocal choirs and three handbell choirs are active, with groups including members from five-years-old through adults. These offerings are supplemented by regular use of a variety of musical instruments, drawing from the talented members of CPC and the community.
Rehearsal times and groupings are adjusted yearly to meet the needs of the congregation. The choirs are always happy to have new members, and the directors will be pleased to discuss the music program with any interested persons.
