Join Us This Sunday
Sunday worship begins at 11:00am From late August through end of May, a full, hot breakfast is served at 9:00am, and Sunday School classes for all ages begin at 9:30am. There is no Sunday School during the summer months. Instead, we offer a continental breakfast and time of fellowship in the courtyard at 10:30am prior to the worship service at 11:00am.
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.
Links to our interactive newsletter (the NWPC Weekly and worship bulletin), a podcast of the weekly sermon are posted on this site each week. Join us this Sunday in worship, if you are unable to attend watch a live stream of our service.
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 Neil Thompson (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 11:00am 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, firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. Child care (newborn to age 3) is provided by our professional care-givers in our bright and attractive nursery. Children ages 4 through 1st grade join us in Worship for 15-20 minutes. Following "Time with Young Disciples," children in this age group are escorted by specially appointed adult “shepherds” to the Children's Worship Center located in the Family Life Center. There, they participate in Young Children and Worship. This program familiarizes young children with the beauty, wonder, and purpose of the "grown-up" worship service, preparing them for full participation in the years ahead.
