Order of Worship
See our order of worship in the Church Bulletin. The worship practices at Faith Presbyterian Church are summarized in a series of articles that first appeared in our newsletter, Biblical Worship Series.
The Lord’s Supper is observed every Lord’s Day at Faith Presbyterian Church alternating between the morning and the evening services. The officers have wanted to retain evening communion not only because all the Lord’s Suppers explicitly mentioned in the New Testament were in the evening, but as well to reinforce the importance of Sunday evening worship as a regular part of the observance of the Lord’s Day. You are welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper if you are a baptized Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, and a faithful member or adherent of this or some other congregation, recognized as belonging to the fellowship of Christian believers. For the details concerning our practice of the Lord’s Supper, please see this evening sermon series.
Help Your Child Worship
Please sit together as a family. If you have a large family, you may want to invite single adults to sit with you. This will emphasize that all believers are in the Lord’s family. It will also help singles fulfill their vows to help in the nurture of the covenant children by helping one of your children with the hymns, the Scripture reading, the confession of sin, etc.
Try to impress on your child the fact of getting quiet, praying to God, and getting ready to worship God during the three minutes of silence preceding the beginning of the morning worship service. Tenderly remind them that we are in the presence of the Lord, and are to quiet our hearts before Him at the beginning.
Encourage your child to participate with the congregation in standing, praying, reading, singing, etc.
Encourage your child to say “Amen” after each of the congregational prayers; tell them frequently why we do this.
Note in the bulletin when communion or a baptism are coming up, and explain to your child what these mean prior to the service.
See to it that your child has a church worship paper and something to write with. Encourage them to use this and not to write on the offering envelopes. If they are old enough, encourage them to use the church worship paper to focus on the sermon. Discourage the drawing of pictures that have nothing to do with the things of God.
Have your child share with you after the service the things written or drawn on the church worship paper. Praise their attempts to listen to the sermon and to participate in other parts of the worship service.
