Join us at 8 or 10 on Sundays (cont. from home page) (Summer)

A friendly greeter will welcome you, and the ushers will offer you a worship bulletin and announcement sheet.  Kids' bulletins with activities and a bag of crayons and other items are available from an usher.

At the 8am Heritage Chapel service, we gather in an intimate space with three walls of stained glass windows from the historic First Presbyterian Church of Ashland.  This service includes much of the content of the later service in a more abbreviated manner.  We sing one hymn (before our accompanist leaves to play at another church). The Lord’s Supper is served each time we worship. Each week those gathered share joys and concerns in prayer.  After this approximately 45-minute service, many people head downtown to Pony Espresso for coffee and conversation.  (When this service was initiated, decades ago, people worshiped, then headed to Mt. Ashland to ski!)

Most Sundays at the 10am Sanctuary service, the readings, songs and other worship materials are projected on the large screen in the front of the church.  Please select a seat where you can clearly see the screen.  (It is OK to get up and move to a different seat after the service has begun.) 

Music is played by Laurie Anne Hunter on the piano, organ, harp and other instruments, and singing is led by the Harmony Ensemble with song leader Lindsay Panero.  Frequently during the summer, guest musicians offer gifts of music. 

A member of the church shares worship leadership with the pastor, leading us through litanies and unison prayers (the part the people speak is always big and bold) and reading scripture lessons.  

Following the 10 o’clock service we move to Calvin Hall (the building closest to Walker Street) for fellowship time.  We enjoy conversation!  Most weeks, refreshment hosts offer snack choices with a gluten free option.  On Second Sundays, we celebrate all birthdays and anniversaries for the month.
