In-Person Worship in the Sanctuary

Worship with us in-person each week in the sanctuary at 10 AM.

 


 

Here are updated expectations for  in-person worship:

  • Mask wearing is optional – you are welcome to wear a mask if you choose. Note that people with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask. Parents may make masking decisions for their own children.
  • The nursery will be open for children birth-5 during worship and the education hour. While our nursery staff workers have been vaccinated, both staff and volunteers will be encouraged to remain masked indoors.
  • If you are feeling ill, please stay home.

 


Please remember that we provide a livestreamed service via Facebook and YouTube at 10AM on Sunday mornings. If you feel safer participating that way, you are invited to continue to be a part of life together virtually. See below for details.

Our 10am Worship Service is Livestreamed Every Sunday on Facebook and YouTube.

 

We welcome you to join us every Sunday at https://www.facebook.com/NewProvPres/ for a worship service beginning at 10 am. Even if you are not a Facebook user, you can watch the service – or join on YouTube!

Traditional Worship Service

The traditional affords us the opportunity to be led in musical worship by the Chancel Choir and our wonderful organ. The message, brought by our insightful professional staff, is the same in both services.

 

Currently, we’re offering one in-person service each Sunday which has elements of our traditional and contemporary services. When we resume two services each Sunday, the traditional service will be offered at 11:05 a.m.

What to Expect – In Person Worship During Non-COVID Times

Visiting a new church can be intimidating – what to wear, where to go, what about the kids?  Here are some frequently asked questions:

 

When are services during non-COVID-19 times?

Our worship service is on Sunday at 10:00 a.m.  This service is led by the Chancel Choir and the organ. Services typically last 60 minutes.

 

What should I wear? 

We are so happy you decided to join us and we want you to feel comfortable. We want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing. In the summertime, it’s not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their “Sunday best,” and that’s fine too! We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.

Where do my children go? 

During both services of worship, children of all ages are invited to the chancel steps for “Children’s Time.” Children up to four years of age may go downstairs following Children’s Time; children kindergarten age and older are invited to remain in the Sanctuary. Activity packets are available in the Narthex for elementary age children.  There are beepers available so Nursery workers can communicate with you during the worship service.  Of course, children are also welcome to remain in the worship service with you.

 

What if my children become restless during worship?

Please feel comfortable to exit the sanctuary at any time.  Outside the Sanctuary is our Atrium with comfortable chairs and access to a water fountain and restrooms.

What About the Kids?

Our goal is to provide a safe, creative, nurturing environment where children can experience God’s love and grow in their faith. At the beginning our our worship services, children sit with their family and friends. During the service, children of all ages are invited to the chancel steps for ‘Children’s Time.’ Children up to four years of age may go downstairs following Children’s Time; children kindergarten age and older are invited to remain in the Sanctuary. Activity packets are available in the Narthex for elementary age children.

 

During the educational hour (11am), age-appropriate lessons and activities for children ages birth through 12th grade combine Bible study, art, music, drama, service, and recreation. Childcare is available for the Sunday school hour for newborn through age 5 in the Preschool classrooms.

 

Pagers are available should children need their parents.
