At Fairview Presbyterian Church, you’ll find people who delight in worshiping God and encouraging one another. We make up a wide range of ages including infants to the elderly. We’d love to have you join us!
What is the worship service like?
We view worship as the collective response of the congregation to the faithfulness and goodness of God. Our desire when we come together is to “exalt and magnify His holy name.” We also acknowledge that “in His presence there is fullness of joy.” Throughout the service there will be times for praise and prayer, opportunities to affirm our beliefs, to demonstrate faithful stewardship of our time, talents, and treasures, and to grow in our faith through the ministry of the Word of God. The music we use to praise the Lord will be a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary songs of praise.
How long is the worship service?
Our morning worship begins at 11:00am following the Sunday School hour and ends soon after midday.
What will the music be like?
We use THE HYMNAL For Worship & Celebration in our services with supplemental music that we believe most effectively communicates the message of the gospel. This provides a blended and balanced approach to our music ministry and brings encouragement, hope, trust, comfort, and the strengthening of faith to each worshiper.
What are the sermons like?
One way of describing our worship is to say that we want to be Bible-based and Christ-centered. For this reason the Word of God and the preaching of the cross are central to our ministry in preaching and teaching. We proclaim a risen Savior, who lives and who reigns in our hearts and lives. The messages preached from our pulpit are based on passages from God’s Word. We encourage our people to bring their Bibles to church and to treasure God’s Word in their hearts.
The messages end with a challenge to apply God’s Word in our lives, in our work, in our family, in our community, and in our world. Our desire is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. And to love Him and to love our neighbor we must be obedient servants and faithful stewards of all His blessings.
What should I wear?
We do not have a specific dress code. Our policy is to accept you just as you are. However, we do encourage our worshipers to remember in Whose presence they are when they enter the sanctuary. Reverence and respect can be shown in how we dress and by today’s standards we would say what is most acceptable is “nice casual.”
Where do I park?
Parking is provided in front of the sanctuary and behind it adjacent to the Family Life Center.
Where do my children go during the worship service?
A nursery is provided each Sunday morning and is available for children from birth to three years of age. The nursery is located in the Sunday School wing directly behind the sanctuary and is easily accessible. For children ages four to seven years, a Children’s Church is provided in the Sunday School wing as well. These older children are dismissed halfway through the service accompanied by a Children’s Church teacher.
