Everyone is welcome at First Presbyterian.

Session will continue to keep an eye on the spread of COVID-19 and may make changes to the schedule if necessary. Flexibility, care, and compassion will continue to be key values that will shape any decisions going forward.

Fall Worship Schedule – Sundays at 10:30 AM

All are welcome at our one weekly service in the Sanctuary on Sundays at 10:30am. Masks are required at all times inside the sanctuary and all church buildings. Registration here is encouraged to help ushers track attendance and aid us if we ever have to alert folks of COVID-19 exposures. Please note that each household requires one spot even if your whole family plans to attend.

Live Stream

The 10:30 AM service will be live-streamed to Twitch below so that those who are not comfortable being in the Sanctuary may continue to worship online with us. The video will be available after the service for 14 days on our Twitch page. You do not need an account to watch.

Children

Children are encouraged to worship with their families! The following programs are geared for children and their families:

  • Children’s Church will resume in February 2022 on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. The children have a Time with Children at the front of the Sanctuary before meeting in Legacy Hall for engaging activities. While the children are having their lesson, which follows the Lectionary, parents can remain in the Sanctuary for the Sermon. We will begin the year with a series called Ways to Pray, which is inspired by the book Praying in Color Kid’s Edition by Sybil MacBeth. We will use our bodies, minds, and hearts to pray in a variety of ways. Update: Due to the current COVID-19 surge, we will temporarily postpone children’s church until February in order to maintain cohorts.
  • Children lead worship will resume on the 3rd Sunday of the month beginning in February 2022. Stay tuned for details!
  • Children’s Worship Busy Bags contain two Pop and Praise sheets – one for readers and one for non-readers, a coloring book, a pop-it key chain, crayons, and a pencil. The fun doesn’t “pop” there! Pay special attention to the “word of the week.” Busy bags are available from the Ushers and are sure to help keep your little ones entertained during the Service.
  • Sunday School classes are held on Sundays at 9:30 AM!  If you’re interested in joining us, please contact Pastor Melissa (melissa@firstpresbelair.org).  Classes are led by caring and experienced teachers who enjoy sharing God’s Word with our children! Due to the current COVID-19 surge, we will be making temporary changes in January to keep the children in cohorts. Sunday School will be held from 9:30-10:00 AM in the classrooms and we will not be singing at 9:15 AM.

New Member Classes are held throughout the year so that those interested in joining FPC can meet with the Pastor and Session to learn more about the church. We will share our stories, learn about the Christian faith, ask questions, and learn what it means to be Presbyterian.
