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.

*9:30 AM WORSHIP

9:30 AM SUNDAY SCHOOL - ADULT, MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL

9:45 AM SUNDAY SCHOOL - PRE-K THROUGH 5TH GRADE

10:30 AM FELLOWSHIP TIME

**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, February 7

Last year, Jesus’ transfiguration was cancelled, or more accurately, Transfiguration Sunday at PCIS was snowed out.  Each year, on the Sunday before Lent begins, we look at a gospel account of Jesus going up the mountain with Peter and James and John. It is a surreal text, with Jesus’ appearance changing, and him meeting and chatting with the long dead Elijah and Moses.  Our Luke 9:28-36 lesson is coupled with Exodus 34:29-35 when Moses comes off Mount Sinai with two tablets and his own bright shining face.  “Mystery and Glory” is Rick Otty’s sermon title, as we observe Jesus with wonder, before we then, with the disciples, come back down the mountain.

Ash Wednesday, February 7, 7:00 pm

“Ridding Ourselves of Religion” will be the theme of Rick Otty’s message, based on Jesus’ words in his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6:1-6,16-21), the Lenten prayer of Psalm 51, and calling upon Kirk Franklin’s gospel rap, “Losing My Religion.”  At the service, the imposition of ashes will be offered to mark the beginning of our Lenten journeys, and the Lord’s Supper will be shared.

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.
