We welcome newcomers and visitors to join us for worship, which is traditional in style and contemporary in spirit.
Why we worship
Worship is central to our life as a community of God’s people. Whatever else God calls us to, we are called to worship together in the promised company of Jesus Christ.
As we worship together, we seek to have our faith fostered, our hope restored, our love elevated, and our discipleship developed.
About the Service
Each service includes contributions from members and clergy who lead us in a weekly expression of our faith.
As you enter the sanctuary, you will be met with warm greetings and provided a bulletin to guide you through the hymns, prayers, and liturgies.
The service will include fine musical contributions from the pipe organ, Chancel Choir and at times our youth band, bell choir, or children’s choir.
And you will hear a sermon that explores the teachings of the Bible and how those lessons can be applied to our lives today.
Following worship, we invite you for fellowship and refreshments in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary. Here, you will find a visitor information center and members of the congregation who will welcome you and answer your questions.
Sacrament of Holy Communion
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is served monthly and at times during special services in the Christian Calendar. All who come to the table of our Lord Jesus Christ are offered the bread and cup, regardless of their age or understanding. The opportunity to eat and drink with Christ is not a right bestowed upon the worthy, but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love.
Children in Worship
Children of all ages are welcome in worship and are invited to participate in a lively children’s talk enjoyed by all. After this talk, children may return to sit with parents or go to the Nursery. Children also may help themselves to activity books and crayons found in a basket in the rear of the church. Parents with infants are welcome to use the rocking chairs at the back of the sanctuary.
Our well-equipped nursery is staffed by a paid childcare specialist and congregation volunteers. It is also on the main floor and is open Sundays for the Christian Education, worship and fellowship hours.
The borough of Indiana provides free parking at all meters on Sundays. We also have designated handicapped parking spaces on 7th Street and a passenger drop-off location. From this location, you can enter the church on the lower level where an elevator is available for those who are unable to use the stairs.
Several professional offices make their parking lots available to church members on Sunday mornings. Feel free to take an available space at the following locations, and thank these neighbors when you have the chance: Rose Medical Associates – the lot runs between Klondyke Avenue and School Street, parallel to South Seventh; Berkshire Hathaway Realty – near the corner of South Seventh and School (please do not park in their reserved spaces); Bonya, Gazza & DeGory – lot on the left on School, near the light at South Sixth. (That office was once Calvary’s manse.) The Indiana Borough Parking Garage is located at 650 Water Street.
