Session Decision about Wednesday Worship

November 21, 2018

On Sunday, November 18, the Session at First Presbyterian Church voted unanimously to approve a recommendation from the Worship and Music Committee to pause the noon Wednesday Worship service. The recommendation was in response to declining attendance over the last few years and the departure of two pastors in late summer.

The change goes into effect immediately and continues until the pastoral staff shortage is filled and leadership is available to explore alternative mid-week worship opportunities.

The church will offer a midweek Advent service at 11 a.m on Thursday, December 6. All are invited to attend this hour-long service with Communion.

“We’re grateful for those who have been part of this mid-week worship opportunity for so many years,” said the Reverend Pen Peery. “We look forward to a time for prayerful discernment on creative ways to expand FPC ministry beyond the sanctuary and the church gate.”
