Welcome to a warm and caring community

Led by the Spirit,

we are an inclusive and welcoming Christian community,

responding to God's call in the world.

 

We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday mornings.

The Presbyterian Church in Sudbury, responding to the Word of God, warmly welcomes all people who seek the love of God, without regard to abilities, race, gender, ethnic background, sexual orientation, economic condition, or any other life circumstance.

 

9:30AM Contemporary and 11:00 AM Traditional Services

Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter at PCIS

 

Palm Sunday, March 29 – There will be palms aplenty for worshipers in both morning services (9:30am and 11:00am), as we celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey.  The child in each of us will be encouraged to sing and shout our “Hosannas” on this festival day, a prelude to Holy Week.  Using the Mark 11:1-11 account of the royal entry, Rick Otty’s sermon, “Fit To Be Untied” will focus on our willingness to be untethered from that which we find secure.  We also dedicate our One Great Hour of Sharing offerings this day.

Holy Week Evening Services, 7:30pm on March 30, 31, April 1 – Continuing a tradition of gathering for evening services during Holy Week, we will reflect on three of the four servant songs in Isaiah (42:1-9; 49:1-7; 50:4-9a).  Gospel texts of incidents during Jesus’ final week will challenge us with “The Tax Question,” “The Widow’s Witness,” and “Those Ever Present Poor” (Mark 12:13-17, 12:41-44, 14:3-9.) 

Maundy Thursday, 7:30pm on April 2 (soup dinner precedes at 6:15pm) – On this evening, we listen.  Maundy, meaning “mandate” is a time to hear Jesus’ invitation to disciples to share a final meal with him, and to receive his instructions for their life together after his death.  Surrounding our sharing the Lord’s Supper, we will hear of the Calling and Falling Away of the Disciples, with a candle lit and extinguished for each, as we approach Good Friday.

Good Friday, noon on April 3 at the Martha and Mary Chapel at the Wayside Inn – We continue our tradition of gathering with other area churches for a midday Good Friday service, marking Jesus’ crucifixion. 

Easter Sunday, April 5 – Our two morning services (9:30am and 11:00am) will celebrate with Hallelujahs of joy.  We mark Easter as our Resurrection Day, and while our celebrations often focus on what follows death, Rick Otty will consider the “Not Just Then and There” component to Easter’s gift of new life for us now.

Onward … Growing in Faith

There are education opportunities throughout the morning allowing options for families.

Sunday school: During the school year, Sunday school for children K – 8th grade is offered during the 9:30am service. Some parents choose to attend worship during this time, while others choose to attend an adult education class and then attend the second service together as a family. Childcare for infants and toddlers is provided throughout the morning from 9:30am–12:00pm. There are additional programmed activities for children throughout the year during the second service. These usually require several weeks of preparation, such as the Christmas Pageant.

Adult Education classes are held during the 9:30am service with additional study groups and workshops offered periodically.

“‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” --NIV Matthew 25.37(b)-40

Mission Statement

As good stewards of the blessings God has provided us, we are called to reach out with hands-on service and with our finances to those beyond our faith community who need our help.

As a team, our mission is to encourage everyone in the church and community to participate actively in Christian outreach and service, and facilitate and coordinate their participation.
