Traditional Worship

Timeless praise and prayer

The traditional services of First Presbyterian Church bring a classical expression of worship that has well stood the test of time. Hymns, robed clergy and an order of worship rooted in Presbyterian tradition tie us to centuries past, while engaging sermons reach us where we are in our modern lives.

8 a.m. Worship

The 8 a.m. service invites contemplation in the quiet early morning intimacy of the small Kerr Chapel. This service, led by the same pastor preaching in the larger 11 a.m. service, follows a traditional order of worship. It also includes a come-forward communion every week. Elevator access from the south tower entrance on Boston Avenue, and from the Atrium via north and south entrances.

11 a.m. Worship

The 11 a.m. traditional service draws on the expansiveness of the church's 90-year-old sanctuary and the powerful call to worship provided by the presence of its organ, a full robed choir and special instrumentalists. The service follows a traditional order of worship, but also includes a special time for the youngest worshippers. Communion takes place on five scheduled liturgical Sundays. Elevator access from the south tower entrance on Boston Avenue, and from the Atrium via north and south entrances.
