CHRISTIAN WORSHIP AT UPC


Worship

Our worship services are the single most important thing we offer at United Presbyterian Church.  Donald McKim defines worship as a human response to the divine. Worship is giving "worth," "praise," or "honor," to what is greater than we are.   As Christians we are called together by the Holy Spirit to respond to the God revealed in the Old and New Testaments and supremely in Jesus Christ.  We proclaim God's greatness for who God is.  And with this knowledge, we worship God not in fear but in awe and reverence.  Join us at 10:30 AM for weekly Sunday worship.


Children in Worship

Children of all ages are welcome in worship.  A children's chat is part of every service.  Activity bags for children are located at the front entrance and if you feel a need to step out for a moment, try our fully staffed child care room for infants and preschoolers. It is equipped with a speaker which makes it possible to hear the worship service while attending to your child.


Liturgist

We want youth and adults to participate in the leadership of the worship service. A liturgist reads scriptures and offers prayers.  If you would like to volunteer as a liturgist, please contact Sharon Watson at presbyterianchurch@daktel.com.


Sound Technicians

People with a love of electronics and technology can contribute to worship by operating the sound system for occasional worship services, as part of a rotating team.  If you would like to volunteer as a sound technician, please contact Mike Allmer at Michael.allmer@gmail.com.


Communion Servers

Anyone who has ever been ordained as an Elder or Deacon in ANY Presbyterian Church is welcome to help serve Holy Communion, which is served monthly on the first Sunday of the month as well as a few special services each year.  Servers help with the set up ahead of time, and/or the distribution of the elements during worship.  This is coordinated through the Worship Committee.  Servers can volunteer to help on particulare months as it fits their schedules, or be added to the list to be called on as needed.  For questions or to volunteer, please contact Sylvia Pringle at mamachips1@gmail.com.


Home Communion

Elders and Deacons in this or any Presbyterian Church are able to bring communion to members who are not able to attend morning worship.  The elements are taken from the table and brought to them on Sunday afternoon.  Currently, we provide home communion every first Sunday of the month.  If you would like to receive communion, please contact Pastor Bob at the church (701-252-1748).
