The Ordering of Worship
Irrespective of the style of our worship service, the order is the same. According to the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) the order offered is a logical progression, it is rooted in the Old and New Testaments, and it reflects the tradition of the universal Church and our Reformed heritage. The order we use is presented in terms of five major actions centered in the Word of God. If a worship service can be seen as a building as is suggested in Dr. Constance Cherry’s, “The Worship Architect,” the actions might be viewed as “load bearing walls” forming “rooms” each of which is appointed appropriately. The actions … the “walls” are:
• gathering around the Word
• proclaiming the Word
• responding to the Word
• the sealing of the Word
• bearing and following the Word into the world

Special Worship Services
In addition to Sunday morning worship, we have special services which include:
• Ash Wednesday
• Maundy Thursday
• Good Friday
• Christmas Eve

Communion
Holy Communion, the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, Eucharist is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. This is subject to slight change if a liturgical day falls near the first Sunday and it is deemed the appropriate day for Communion. For example, if the First Sunday of Advent fell on the final Sunday of the month, Communion would be celebrated then instead of on the following Sunday. Communion is also celebrated on Maundy Thursday, Christmas Eve (late service only) and during Fifth Sunday Vespers when they are held. On occasion the bread and cup are distributed to the congregation as they sit in the pews while at other times the congregation members come to the chancel area to receive the Sacrament.
