Responding to the Word

Affirmation of Faith – The people affirm what they believe. This is either done by singing a hymn that relates to the sermon message or is spoken from one of the Presbyterian confessions of faith or creeds.

Offering – A time when the congregation offers gifts of time, money, and food out of thanksgiving for God’s goodness to them.  The money and food are utilized in the ministries and mission of this church and the greater Presbyterian Church USA. During this time, you are also invited to sign the red friendship register that will be passed to you. After the offering on a non-communion Sunday, we will stand and sing a Doxology (song of praise) and offer a prayer dedicating the offering to God.

Table Set for Lent 2016Prayers of the People – A prayer offered on behalf of those in our congregation, communities, and in our world. It is a prayer marking joys and concerns in our shared life together.  This prayer is followed by The Lord’s Prayer that is spoken in unison.

Communion is served as the congregation responds to the Word on the first and third Sundays, and every Sunday during Advent and Lent.
