No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at First Presbyterian Church Northshore! We are a community of believers that extends love and grace, just as it has been extended to us. Our mission as a church is to make “More People, More like Christ.”
What is your service like?
On Sunday mornings, you will experience a worship service with both traditional and contemporary elements.
Our 9:00 and 11:15 services meet in our sanctuary and are a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs led by our worship team. Our choir may perform, prayers will be lifted for those in need, scripture will be read, and one of our pastors will teach from the Bible.
At all services we take an offering, but this is for our members and regular attenders as part of their commitment to God and the church. As a visitor, please do not feel obligated to make a donation.
What should I wear?
We encourage people to come as they are and to be comfortable. You’ll see people dressed in a wide range of clothing, from jeans to dress clothes. We want you to feel at home, so come as you are most comfortable. We are a congregation of all ages.
How often do you take Communion?
If you’re visiting on the first Sunday of the month, you can expect Communion to be served. We ask that only those that profess a personal faith in Jesus Christ participate in this holy sacrament. After communion we take a second offering for the “work of our Deacons.” These funds are used to directly help those in our congregation and surrounding community that have immediate financial and physical needs.
What about my children?
We also have full Nursery Care for children 0 through 4 years old during all services. When you drop your child off, you’ll get a pager so nursery workers can contact you should your child need your attention.
Age 4-2nd Grade
Children are welcome and encouraged to stay with you through church. However, children age 4 – 2nd grade are invited to participate in our Children’s Sermon during the 9:00 service.
How do I get connected?
At FPC, we value community. We try to provide many ways for individuals to get connected within our church. You’ll hear about a lot of these opportunities from the pulpit on a Sunday morning, as well as in the Sunday Bulletin. Be sure to say hello to Pastor Greg or Pastor Derek when you visit, and feel free to ask questions of our greeters in the lobby.
We also encourage you to visit the Connect section of our website to see all the weekly opportunities there are to connect with other members of our fellowship. We look forward to getting to know you!
