How should I dress?
You will find that the community of Peoples Presbyterian Church is comfortable dressing in many different ways. Some people dress in jeans and t-shirts, while others wear their Sunday best, and everything in between. We welcome you to dress however you feel most comfortable.
Where should I park and where do I enter the building?
When you first arrive at Peoples Presbyterian Church, you will want to park in the parking lot. You may also park along the street or at Paddock Elementary School, across Marvin Street to the West. Once you park, you can head straight for the Main Doors facing North on Smith Street, where you will be welcomed by one of greeters.
What is the worship service like?
Our Sunday morning service usually begins with a welcome from the pastor and an opening prayer. After greeting one another, we move into a time for the children, followed by a sermon. On the first Sunday of each month we share communion before singing a final song and receiving a blessing. On all other Sundays, we pray for the needs of our community, sing a hymn, and receive a blessing. During the service, we sing hymns together, the choir might sing an anthem, or perhaps the handbell choir will perform a piece. After the service, we gather in the Fellowship Hall for light refreshments. A normal Sunday service usually lasts for one hour.
Are there any classes for my children during the service?
Yes. Our youngest children (Age 5 and younger) are invited to the nursery before the worship service begins. They join us for the children’s sermon, and then return to their classroom for a time of games, stories, and sometimes crafts! Children in Kindergarten up through high school are invited to join us for the start of our worship service in the sanctuary. After the children’s sermon, they are all invited to join our Christian Education Director for a class in the Youth Room. On Communion Sundays (the first Sunday of each month), all of the children and youth, Kindergarten and older, come back to the sanctuary to join us for Communion.
