Contemporary Worship Service

The purpose of our Crossroads Worship Service is to worship God using a contemporary music form
so that those whose “heart music” is contemporary might be more fully drawn into a time of whole-hearted worship and experience the presence of the living Christ in a more powerful way. The service is designed to be “hands free,” casual, and celebratory! We invite you to join us and lose yourself in worship of our great God.

"It was the duty of the trumpeters and singers
to make themselves heard in unison
in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord,
and when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals
and other musical instruments, in praise to the Lord...
the glory of the Lord filled the house of God."
2 Chronicles 5:13-14

Crossroads Worship is held in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday, from the second Sunday in September through the first Sunday in June. Sunday School for all ages meets after the service, at 10:00 a.m.

WHERE DO I PARK?
Parking for First Presbyterian is available in our parking lot at the corner of South Main Street and East Third Avenue (across Main Street from the front of the church), in the parking lot of the former Arts United (across West Third Avenue from the church's side entrance), in the parking lot of Lanier's Hardware on the corner of State Street and West Third Avenue, and along Third Avenue and South Main Street.
