THE LORD'S DAY @ FPC MONORE

Every Sunday morning at 11 o'clock FPC offers a worship service that is Christ-centered, largely traditional, and alive.  We use liturgical and contemporary elements.  Our music is exceptional.  Our pastor preaches expository sermons, moving through entire books.

Worship bulletins for upcoming worship services are available for download (in the Worship / Worship Bulletins section).  For the convenience of our growing number of tablet-equipped worshipers they're in iPad / vertical format; but they can be read by any .PDF-equipped device.

 

 

SACRAMENTS

On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion.  We practice "open communion" -- all who are baptized and claim Jesus as Savior & Lord are invited to join us.  The elders bring the elements -- first the bread and then the fruit of the vine (personal-sized cups, some with grape juice, others with wine) -- to the pews.

On Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve, worshipers who are able come forward to receive the elements by intinction. 

The Sacrament of Baptism is administered, as requested, to believers (and their children) who have not heretofore received Trinitarian baptism, that is, "in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."

We do not rebaptize.

While Presbyterians traditionally baptize by "sprinkling", we will, when requested, baptize by immersion or effusion.

 

PRAYER & ANOINTING with OIL

Are any among you sick?  They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord.  – James 5.14

On the first Sunday of each month at the close of worship, we hold brief, simple, and dignified services of wholenessAny who seek the Lord's touch on an ailment or a broken place are invited to the foot of the cross at the close of worship where, per the Scriptures, our Pastor and Elders pray and anoint with oil.

If invited, the Pastor and Elders visit homes and hospitals to pray and anoint.
