Worship

churchIrisWorship is how we honor God. It’s a manifestation of our submission to Him and to His will. Worshipful expression may take the form of praising God, professing our faith in Him, testifying of His work in our lives, showing gratefulness for all He has done for us, sacrificially serving others, proclaiming His truth, and submitting to His will.  Worshipful people are humble before the one and only omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God; they subordinate their personal goals to God’s; they tell others about God, His truths, and the love they enjoy as a child of God.  Sunday worship includes teaching about God and His ways, encouraging faith in Him,  and acknowledging our dependence on Him for all that we need.

Join us each week in worshiping our God! The Sunday morning traditional worship service is held at the historic Elbert Presbyterian Chapel at 10:45 a.m. (The old bell is still rung before each service.)

The service usually lasts for about 90 minutes. Following is the general format: Welcome – Prelude – Scripture Reading – Hymn #1 – Call to Worship – Hymn #2 – Prayer of Praise and Confession – Announcements – Offering – Hymn #3 – Choir or Special Music – Sermon – Confession of Faith – Prayers of the People and The Lord’s Prayer – Benediction – Postlude.

Special worship services occur around the holidays and are announced in advance.

Communion

“Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.” (1 Co 11:27 AV)

Holy Communion is held near the end of the worship service on the second Sunday of each month. All who have prepared their hearts to receive communion are invited to participate.

Sunday School

Sunday school for children is during the Sunday morning worship service.
