Join Us This Sunday
Sunday worship begins at 10:30am.
Our Order of Worship follows the Reformed tradition, with our pastors leading us in worship. Occasionally during the year, we welcome a guest minister to the pulpit. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month.
In addition to Sunday worship, we gather at special times of the church year, including on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday to commemorate the Last Supper, Good Friday commemorating the Crucifixion of Christ, and on Christmas Eve for a candle-light service in anticipation of the Lord's birth. A spring highlight is Youth Sunday, a special worship service planned by and utilizing the gifts of our youth.
Northwest Presbyterian Church has an established history of traditional liturgy. The music is an integral aspect of worship and fellowship. Congregational singing is encouraged and supported by the clergy and the chancel choir under the leadership of Dr. James Kohler (Director of Music Ministries) together with Mauro Ronca (organist and accompanist).
Chancel Choir meets on Wednesday evenings 7:00-8:30pm in the sanctuary, under the direction of Dr. James Kohler. This group involves singers with varying levels of experience (some with little music background and some with extensive music experience) including four staff section leaders. The Chancel Choir leads 10:30am worship every Sunday. Twice a year (advent and lent), the choir sings a large work with an instrument ensemble. The choir sings in a variety of styles of music from classical to gospel, and hymn-arrangements to jazz. Parties and retreats are an important part of our experience together as we grow as a community of faith.
Individuals with musical talents are encouraged to offer their gifts through song or instrumental participation in worship. Special musical offerings are welcomed and coordinated by the Director of Music.
Please contact Dr. James Kohler for more information, email@example.com.
Ours is a safe campus and a caring environment, where adult members know the children by name, care for them, and look out for one another’s families. The nursery is available from 9:00am until the end of the worship service or the end of any after-church church-wide events. Parents of children ages newborn to 3-years are invited to bring children to the nursery. Please provide diapers, a change of clothes, medication (Epi-Pen) and any snacks your child might need while in care (no peanut products please.)
Children’s Sunday School: from 10:50-11:30am (immediately following the Time with Young Disciples): Marina Greiner is teaching a combined Children's Sunday School class for all children between the ages of 4 years old through 5th grade.
Lead teachers will be assisted each Sunday by church volunteers. Parents should pick up their children from their classrooms following the worship service.
Children’s Fellowship Hour: Children between the ages of 4-years-old to 5th grade are invited to take part in the new Children’s Fellowship Hour that will take place from 9:15-10:15am – concurrent with the adult Sunday school classes. Children will be lead in music, crafts, games and play. This will be a wonderful time for children to enjoy time together.
