The Rev. Dr. John Paderson is the honorably retired pastor of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Newark, DE, where he and his wife Kathy currently reside.  John was a member of PCIS in the 90’s and was ordained a deacon here.  He was under the church’s care throughout the ordination process to the office of Minister of Word and Sacrament.  His service of ordination by Boston Presbytery was held at PCIS in 2001.  He is a member of New Castle Presbytery in which he has served on a variety of committees and task forces, including the Committee on Ministry.  He currently serves on the presbytery’s Permanent Judicial Commission.  He has a Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School in Newton, MA and a Doctor of Ministry from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC.  He has a deep interest in historical ecclesiology and ecumenicity.  His doctoral work was in that area.

John’s sermon title and scripture lesson are, “You Are the Body of Christ”, 1 Cor. 12:12-27.  The sermon will explore what being the Body of Christ means for a church’s ministry and her relationship with other churches.

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.

***Summer 10:00AM - This service is similar to the 11:00AM service except the choir does not sing.  Music and hymns are led by the Director of Music.

*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 all 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.)
