Worship

Easter 2012 - 137

All are welcome to worship with us!

Worship begins on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. We celebrate the Lord weekly by praying together aloud and in silence, by reading scripture, singing hymns both old and new, receiving inspiration from beautiful music, and seeking fresh perspectives on faith from our pastor’s message.

Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month. Anyone who has been baptized in Jesus’ name and accepts Him as their saviour is welcome to receive communion with us. Our communion is alcohol-free.

We also have a number of special services throughout the year:

  • Christmas Eve “Carols and Candles”.
  • Easter service.
  • Special seasonal worship opportunities.

Children in Pre-K through 5th grade participate in activities and music geared for their ages.

For children younger than age three, loving and professional care is available in the Nursery during worship service. You can even be given a pager to use during the service so the Nursery staff can stay in touch with you!

Special Needs. Hearing-Impaired devices and large print bulletins and song sheets are available upon request. If you or a loved one are unable to climb stairs, please enter through the rear parking lot (off South Grove St.) and take the elevator up one floor to the sanctuary. The restrooms on that floor are also handicapped-accessible. And if you need transportation, please contact the church office!

Worship CDs – An excellent way to continue helping your child be immersed in God’s Word is to listen to our worship service throughout the week.  You can request a CD from Miss Adriane or from the church office to listen to at home or in the car.  Listening to the CDs allows your child to remember what happened on Sunday and help familiarize them with our group prayers and sung responses like the Doxology.

In looking further ahead into the summer months – remember to save Sunday, July 9th on the church calendar.  That’s the date for our Outdoor Worship & Potluck at Presby Park!  Can’t wait to see you there!

Every Sunday at 7 p.m. (during Fall thru Spring semesters), a group of BGSU students gathers to celebrate The Loving Inclusion That God Has Taught.  The LIGHT is a recently formed campus organization whose mission directly aligns with ours here at First Presbyterian Church.  We have a message and discussion, and a time for prayer. Heather Jordan is the faculty representative and has been working with students on campus Sunday evenings.

Interested in joining us? Come to 114 Education Building on Sunday nights from 7-8:30 pm. Want to help but can’t attend? College students ALWAYS appreciate the gift of good food.  If you want to bring a snack for the students when you attend church on Sundays, Heather Jordan will make sure it gets to the students for their meetings.  For more information, contact the group’s Faculty Advisor, Heather Jordan at hljordan@bgsu.edu or 330-734-8917.
