Downtown Presbyterian
Sunday Morning Schedule
April 2018 - Sunday Forum

Sunday Forum takes place from 9:50-10:50 am in the Shaw Room with coffee, tea, and a guest speaker who presents and then invites discussion on a topic such as spiritual authenticity, healing for our city, the challenges of peace in our world, climate change, journeys of grief, nonviolent communication, and positive parenting. These gatherings are free and open to the public.

11:00 am Worship, (10 am in the summer, beginning July 1, returning to 11 am in September), in the Downtown Presbyterian Church sanctuary is centered in soul-stirring music, prayers of praise and hope, and innovative preaching that brings into dialogue the wisdom of scripture and the challenges we face in our lives and in our world. During the Children’s Time, our Pastor sits on the chancel steps and really talk with our youngsters, who never fail to keep the pastor on her toes! Our Pastor collaborates closely in planning worship with Lee Wright, our Director of Music Ministry, who conducts the Chancel Choir, Children’s Ensemble, and seasonal bell choirs.

At noon, everyone is invited to a Fellowship Time in the Hallock Lounge, where coffee, tea, and cookies are served.


Downtown Church is handicap accessible. It includes audio loops in the adult education room, the sanctuary and in Celebration Hall. The service in the sanctuary can be sign-language interpreted with notice.

Childcare for infants and toddlers is provided.
