First Presbyterian Church is pleased to offer its members and friends a variety of reguarly scheduled worship services.
Our Sunday service is held in the sanctuary and follows the order in the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship. Music for the Sunday service is provided by our Chancel, Bell and Children's choirs, as well as a variety of musical guests.
The Wednesday evening service finds us in the upstairs chapel for a come as you are prayer meeting where, on a rotating basis, we follow the denomination's liturgies for Evening Prayer, the Lord's Supper, a Service for Wholeness, and Prayer at the Close of the Day. During each service after the scripture reading, the Pastor and those worshipping reflect on the readings. During these services every enjoys singing gospel hymns and praise music led by volunteer musicians from the congregation.
On Saturday evenings, we gather in the chapel for an informal come as you are service with music provided by the "1st Prez Praize Band", our own praise band. Music ranges from the older gospel hymns to the more modern Christian music heard today.
We typically celebrate the Lord's Supper monthly on the first Sunday of month and the Saturday preceeding the first Sunday as well as other services throughout the year. Communion at First Prez is open to everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. All are invited share communion with us.
Several times throughout the year members of First Prez make three committments to the life of the church. The first committment is around Valentines Day when we commit our hearts. The second committment happens at the time of Pentecost when we commit our hands in doing the work of the church. And our third committment is just after All-Saints day when we make our financial committment.
Each year in February the youth lead the Souper Bowl of Caring service where members are encouraged to support the youth by donating can goods for food pantries located in the Jeffersonville area. All of this occurs on Super Bowl Sunday.
