    Worship Schedule

    Each Sunday, we meet in the sanctuary at our new location (2021) @ 10:00 AM for a formal and somewhat intimate service.  On the first Sunday of the month, everyone is encouraged to join us for light refreshments in Fellowship Hall.

    Our services follow the Liturgy of the Presbyterian Church (USA) including the Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Assurance of Pardon, Old and New Testament Lessons, Sermon, Receiving the Offering, Prayers for the People and the Lord’s Prayer, and Sending Prayer.

    Our 5th Sunday Jazz Services are now hosted by First United Methodist Church, located at 201 N. Court, Fairfield @ 10:30 AM. Pastor Joe and Pastor Al alternate officiating these services.

Sermon Notes & Recorded Messages


(John 9:1-41) If you see a word that begins with “presby,” chances are it has something to so with the Presbyterian tradition.  Besides the word “Presbyterian,” there’s also the word “presbytery” – the regional governing body of that denomination.  But it’s not an exclusively Presbyterian term.  In Roman Catholic churches, “presbytery” is the name of…


(John 4:5-42) They say, “Seeing is believing.”  If that’s the case, we’re at a disadvantage when it comes to meeting Jesus in the Scriptures.  We use our ears to hear stories of his life.  As we listen to Scriptures read aloud, we must engage our imaginations to picture those scenes.

(Matthew 17:1-9) Seminaries long ago used to teach that the ideal sermon should have three points and end with a poem.  Who knows if they ever really taught that, but it’s been something of a joke among preachers ever since: an indicator for a pedestrian and uninspired sermon. “Three points and a poem.”  Ho-hum.

We use traditional hymns throughout the service. We have a talented pianist who adds Prelude, Offertory, and Postlude pieces to the worships service as well as a variety of special music.

At any time of year, we welcome all worshipers to come comfortably dressed, with most members choosing “business casual” attire.  However, clothes do not matter to us – the people wearing them do!
