Our services at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church tend toward traditional although we are not afraid to try new things and include some variety in our worship. During a typical service we open with praise, greet others in the congregation with the “Peace of Christ”, hear God’s word to us through prayer, sacrament, and preaching, and are sent out into the world to love and serve in Christ’s name. Music is an important part of our worship, with several congregational hymns, responses, and special music from our choir, music director or guest artists.

What is the worship service like?
Our worship service typically follows the traditional Presbyterian Book of Order, with praise, scripture, a sermon by our pastor, prayer and a sending out. Music is an important part of our worship, with several congregational hymns, responses, and special music from our choir, music director or guest artists. Communion is held 2 times per month, and weekly during Advent, Christmas, and Easter – all are welcome to participate. We celebrate with gluten-free bread and grape juice.
Some services are held outdoors in a grassy area under the trees, or led by our youth, or held around tables with a meal as the early Christians did. Special services will be noted on our website.
What if my hearing, eyesight or mobility is poor?
Hearing devices and magnifying glasses are available – please ask an usher. You can avoid stairs by entering from either door on 35th. An elevator is available for special events held downstairs in the Fellowship Hall. If you need help with mobility, please let someone know.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable for you. Many people dress casually, but however you are dressed, you’re likely to find others there like you.
Will I be asked for money?
We pass the offering plates once during the service for our regular folks; if you are a visitor, please relax and be our guest. You will often see people pass the plate along without putting anything in, since many members give monthly or by mail.
