Please join us for Corporate Worship at 10:00 a.m.
Why We Worship
We are never more the church than when we are worshipping together on the Lord’s Day. In corporate worship, God is both the primary object of worship and the primary actor in worship – meaning God is at work forming us more and more into the people he desires us to be. In worship we are reoriented to who our God is and what our God has done for us in Christ and by his Spirit – how he has called us, forgiven us, teaches us, feeds us, and sends us out into the world to bear his name as we lift high the cross of Christ. It’s through our worship together that God is actually advancing His Kingdom – against the forces of darkness out there, but also against the forces of darkness still in here. So, corporate worship is the engine of our mission, as a church and as individuals, for from it flows our growth in the gospel and our going out with the gospel.
What To Expect
Every week we celebrate the good news ofJesus Christ through responsive Scripture readings, confession, prayer, singing together, the reading and preaching of the Word, and the Lord’s Supper.
What can visitors expect? We want you to feel welcome to worship with us and learn about FWPC. Typical dress is casual to business casual – come as you are! You will see men in jeans, casual or dress pants, and even suits. You’ll find women wearing pants, skirts, and dresses. Greeters will welcome you into the fellowship hall and direct you to the sanctuary. We would love to have a record of your visit and follow up with you. If you wish, you may scan the QR code in the bulletin to provide your contact information, and stop by the vistors’ kiosk in the fellowship hall for a welcome gift. You can expect the worship service to conclude between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. Our elders are available after the service to answer questions or pray with you.
Sermons: Preaching at FWPC is expositional, meaning that it seeks to proclaim and unfold the meaning and significance of the biblical text to engage the whole person. Sermons usually last 30-35 minutes and are meant to show forth how God, through a partiuclar passage of Scripture, reveals both our need for God’s grace and his provision of that grace in his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. In this way, the sermon seeks to be both Biblical and transformational. This is what we mean by the term Gospel-driven… if a sermon is not Gospel-driven, and hence Christ-focused, it is not biblical.
Kids of all ages are welcome during the entire service, but childcare is available for infants-3 years old. Check-in is located at the hallway to the children’s wing near the main entrance. Ages 4-2nd grade may be dismissed prior to the sermon for KIWI (Kids In Worship Instruction) and will return when the sermon concludes.
