Worship & Music . . .
We were created to praise God, our Creator & Redeemer. We gather together to worship God in spirit and truth, rendering to God a worthy offering.
Sunday Worship is "relaxed traditional" and includes hymns, scripture readings, and teaching time based on the Revised Common Lectionary. The 45-minute service is held in our spacious Sanctuary. Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and on liturgically significant days.
Combined Mid-Week Services are held each Wednesday during Lent alternating between St. John's and St. Mark's UCC, Cressona. The informal 40-minute service includes singing, prayers, and a brief message.
Mite Family Room is located at the rear of the Sanctuary for those with young children or anyone having difficulty sitting for an extended period of time.
Streaming of Services is available through our website and Facebook page for those who prefer to worship virtually.
