After you park your car and come through the red doors, you will likely be greeted by a few people. If it’s your first time, please pick up a brown paper bag from the Welcome Table with some goodies in it. Included is an introductory booklet containing a diagram of the building to help you find your way around. If you have children, please feel free to situate them in the nursery.
Once you get your bearings, step into the sanctuary and pick up a bulletin which will have the order of service for the day plus lots of other helpful information. Find a good seat – every other pew is blocked off for your protection – and settle in for a sweet hour of worship.
The service will have music, prayers, scripture readings, and preaching. On the first Sunday of each month, we share the Lord’s Supper.
What’s the style at Huntingdon Valley Presbyterian Church? We take God seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. People are relaxed, friendly, not too stuffy. The pastor wears a suit and a tie, but he’s usually the only one who does! At least in the early service. Wear whatever feels comfortable.
After each service, people tend to hang around and talk a good long while, but outside and at a safe distance. There is Sunday School for most ages between the two services beginning at 10:15 a.m.
Here is our normal* Sunday schedule:
- 9:00 a.m. - Contemporary worship in the Sanctuary.
- 10:15 a.m. - Children's Ministries Sunday school is meeting on the stage side of the Boyer Fellowship Hall and in room 209.
