**11:00 AM WORSHIP

WORSHIP AT THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN SUDBURY IS CENTERED ON GOD’S WORD, AND WITH MUSIC AND PRAYER AND PREACHING, WE CELEBRATE BOTH GOD’S LOVE FOR AND CHALLENGES TO US AS WE SEEK TO BE FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST AND HIS TEACHINGS.  AS WITH MANY CHURCHES, OUR MEMBERS COME FROM DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS BACKGROUNDS AND HAVE A VARIETY OF MUSIC AND WORSHIP STYLES AND PREFERENCES.  DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR, WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT STYLES OF WORSHIP ON SUNDAY MORNINGS. 

THE FOLLOWING SUMMARIZES THE DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN OUR TWO SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES

*9:30AM – THE MUSIC IN THIS SERVICE IS LED BY A PRAISE BAND OF MEMBERS, USUALLY MORE CONTEMPORARY IN STYLE, WITH THE WORDS PROJECTED ONTO A SCREEN IN THE FRONT OF THE SANCTUARY.  THERE IS ALSO A TIME WITH CHILDREN EARLY DURING THIS SERVICE, AFTER WHICH THE CHILDREN ATTEND CHURCH SCHOOL. 

**11:00AM – THE ORDER OF THIS SERVICE IS FAMILIAR TO THOSE RAISED PRESBYTERIAN.  THE MUSIC IN THIS SERVICE IS LED BY A CHOIR, WHICH NORMALLY SINGS AN ANTHEM DURING THE SERVICE.  HYMNS, RATHER THAN PRAISE MUSIC, ARE CHOSEN FROM THE NEW PRESBYTERIAN HYMNAL, AND MAY INCLUDE BOTH TRADITIONAL AND MORE MODERN HYMN SETTINGS. 

IN BOTH WORSHIP SERVICES, WE HEAR A SERMON, BASED ON A SCRIPTURE TEXT AND PREACHED TO BUILD FAITH AND EQUIP US TO SERVE GOD.  WE NORMALLY ALSO INCLUDE A PRAYER TIME WHEN WORSHIPERS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE JOYS AND CONCERNS, AND AN OFFERING TO SUPPORT THE MISSIONS AND PROGRAMS OF THE CHURCH IS RECEIVED.  ON THE FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH, WE OBSERVE THE SACRAMENT OF THE LORD’S SUPPER (COMMUNION.) 

Sunday, January 22, 2017

“[I received] some information about you, that you’re fighting with each other.” So the apostle Paul jumps right into his reason for writing to the contentious church in Corinth. (I Corinthians 1:10-18) The words could also be used to describe our current political landscape, or even continuing divisions within the church. On this weekend after the Presidential inauguration, we will also hear Jesus call his first disciples to be fishers of people. (Matthew 4:12-23) In his sermon, “Going Fishing…Together,” Rick Otty will explore how these two texts call for a transforming unity in Christ.
