The gospel of Matthew ends with the great commission, the call to go out and make disciples. These familiar words inspire us and also scare us, as we wonder if we are capable of boldly sharing our faith. Come and hear about our call “to go” as well as the assurance that we can faithfully serve even with our doubts. Scripture Readings: Psalm 8 and Matthew 28:16-20

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.)
