Worship


Worship at Alpharetta Presbyterian Church

Worship is the heart of our congregation. On Sundays and other holy days, our Reformed service glorifies God and proclaims Christ's teachings. Our pastors, lay leaders and music ministries inspire and encourage our congregation to hear the Good News, to proclaim the Kingdom of God, and to witness to the community.

We are a Welcoming Congregation

Our building is handicapped accessible, and we provide hearing assistance devices and large-print Bibles, hymn sheets and bulletins. Gluten-free wafers are provided during 1st Sunday Communion. We also offer our Promise Class for special needs children at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m.

Sunday Worship Schedule

The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month during each service, and a weekly offering is collected to support the life and work of the church. 


Typical Sunday Schedule

8 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Fellowship Breakfast

9:30 Worship Service
Our early service is traditional with congregational liturgy (prayers) and a sermon inspired by scripture that speaks to life and faith today. A choral ensemble leads music that is accompanied by organ or piano. A brief message is given for children on the chancel steps. This service typically lasts one hour. Nursery is provided as well as Promise Class for children with special needs.

9:30 a.m. Sunday School
During the 9:30 hour, there are ample opportunities for fellowship and Christian education for all ages and interests. We also offer a confirmation program for 8th graders to prepare them for active church membership. All Sunday School classes welcome visitors, so feel free to drop in! One of our adult education classes meets at 8:30 a.m. A full class listing can be found here.

10:30 - 11 a.m.  Fellowship Gathering 
Pastries and coffee will be served in Fellowship Hall after the Sunday school hour to allow folks to mingle and relax before the 11 a.m. worship service begins.

11 a.m. Worship Service
This service is traditional with congregational liturgy (prayers) and a sermon inspired by scripture that speaks to life and faith today.

A brief message is given for children on the chancel steps, after which they may choose to attend KinderWorship for the remainder of the hour. This service typically lasts one hour. Nursery is provided as well as Promise Class for children with special needs.

KinderWorship

KinderWorship is offered during the 11 a.m. worship service for children 3 years old through 1st grade (and first graders until March). The children attend the service with their families through the Children's Moment, and then go with their teachers for a short lesson, craft or activity, then playtime outside, weather permitting. Children must be signed out by an adult following the worship service.
