First Presbyterian Church’s Sunday Worship Services 

We believe that worship is the central experience for every member and friend of First Presbyterian. Our community of giving, connecting, learning, and serving begins in God’s sanctuary with worship the highest priority.

Worship at First Presbyterian represents a style that reflects the majesty and the splendor of our Creator, giving special emphasis to quality preaching and music, clear and concise liturgy as well as moving and meaningful practice of the sacraments. Worship also leads us to renew and develop friendships with one another as we connect in conversation with each other before and after services.

We Offer a Traditional Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. and a Early Service at 8:30 a.m. 

We worship on Sundays through prayer, scripture reading, preaching the Word, music, sharing in the life of the church and one another and celebrating Communion and Baptism together.

Sunday worship is the highlight of our weekly church life, and it helps us to refocus our lives, deepen our faith, and seek out God’s call on our lives. 

First Presbyterian Church of Manhattan organizes itself in such a way as to meet the Six Great Ends of the Church put forth in our Book of Order’s Foundations of Presbyterian Polity. The Six Great Ends of the Church are as follows: 

  1. The proclamation of the Gospel for the salvation of humankind; 
  2. The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God; 
  3. The maintenance of divine worship; 
  4. The preservation of the truth; 
  5. The promotion of social righteousness; 
  6. The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.

We hope to see you in Worship this Sunday!
