First Time Visitor?
We invite you to join us any Sunday morning.
We have Sunday school classes for all ages at 10:00 a.m. in the Educational wing.
Worship is at 11:00 a.m. in our beautiful 1888 sanctuary. Surrounded by native pine woodwork and stained glass windows, we hope you will encounter the living God through scripture, sermon, and song as well as prayer, offering, and blessing — not to mention the sheer act of being in community with other worshipers.
We worship in the Reformed tradition. The service flows from gathering, to hearing God’s Word, to responding to it. We enjoy wonderful music from an Austin pipe organ (masterfully played!) and choir (composed of angelic voices!). Sometimes it is augmented by piano, flute, guitar, sax, or other instruments. We follow the church liturgical calendar which begins in Advent (the four Sundays before Christmas) and continues through Christ the King Sunday. Usually the scriptures and themes of worship are drawn from the Common Lectionary, a three-year cycle of Bible readings. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) on the first Sunday of the month. Some people dress up for worship. Many dress casually.
We love children and welcome them in worship. We have a children’s sermon early in the service. Preschoolers may opt afterwards to go to child care or stay with their family. There is a nursery available during the entire service for infants through age 5 located in the Educational wing. Please don’t hesitate to ask someone to show you where the rooms are.
If stairs are a problem for you, please come in the entrance under the porte cochere (covered driveway). In that hall is an elevator which accesses all floors. Large-print bulletins and hearing aids are available in the sanctuary.
Should you have any questions about what to expect, please call the church office Monday through Thursday, 10 am to 2 pm to inquire: (864) 366-2677.
Will You Join Us?
Whether you are new to the Christian faith or a disciple for many years, we invite you to come and journey with us. In Presbyterian congregations, those wishing to join may do so by one of three ways:
- Baptism and Profession of Faith for those who have never been part of a church
- Reaffirmation of Faith for those who have been baptized but are not currently active with a church or whose church does not “transfer letters”
- Transfer of Letter for those who are on the active roll of another church
