You can participate in JCPC Sunday worship services in person or online. The services blend traditional and contemporary components to create a comfortable, meaningful experience for all participants. Our order of worship is characterized by prayer, inspiring meditations, and glorious music.
From time to time, the traditional sounds of an organ and a choir are complemented by the powerful sounds of brass and strings. Occasionally, you’ll also experience the contemporary sounds of a guitar, participate in a song of praise, and even clap along to a blues-based gospel hymn!
Each week, one of our pastors will reach out and touch you with a relevant message that connects Biblically-based lessons with challenges we face in the present. The sermon is the centerpiece of our worship service and will encourage you to reflect on your life and how it impacts the lives of others.
A special Children's Worship is held each week in conjunction with the 10:30 a.m. worship service. It allows children to participate in the first half of the service and then depart after a brief children’s sermon for a special program that’s designed just for them.
Johann Sebastian Bach once said that "Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul." For this reason and many more, music is an essential ministry at JCPC.
The liturgical arts help to create a unique and inspiring worship experience by providing decorative elements that complement the other aspects of our worship services and sacred events.
In addition to our standard order of worship, we regularly celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper during worship services:
The Lord’s Supper: At JCPC, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper (or Holy Communion) on the first Sunday of each month. At the Lord's Table, the Church is renewed and empowered by the memory of Christ's life, death, resurrection, and promise to return. Each of us is sustained by Christ's pledge of undying love and eternal presence with God's people, and sealed in God's covenant of grace through partaking of Christ's self-offering.
Baptism: Both believers and their children are included in God's covenant of love. Baptism, whether administered to those who profess their faith or to those presented for Baptism as infants, is one and the same Sacrament. At JCPC, we celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism for new members of our congregation during worship services as needed. For more information about scheduling a baptism or to speak with a pastor about baptism-related questions, please contact the church office.
