About Worship at CPC
Worship is central to the life of Collegiate Presbyterian Church.  Each Sunday we come together as a community to cultivate a sense of reverence and awe for God. The sermons are biblically based, provocative, and relevant to the practice of the Christian faith in our daily lives. Our services follow the rhythm of the liturgical year.  Music has a special place in our worship services, helping to open the doors of our souls and draws us closer to God. Childcare is provided for infants and preschoolers during all worship services.

The 9:30am Sunday Worship service is held in the sanctuary. While most of our music is drawn from the classical traditions, we celebrate using a diversity of hymns, responses and anthems. The reading and preaching of God’s Word is central. We share joys and concerns for prayer each week. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and weekly during Advent and Lent.  A “Time for Young Christians” is offered during most worship services. In addition, our worship life is enhanced by special seasonal worship services, including Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday.

Coming Sunday, August 20, 2017 re:formed worship service!

In order to provide our families the opportunity to participate in church activities, we provide childcare for their youngest family members.  A staff of 12-14 individuals are interviewed, screened, and trained to take the best care of our children. Every Sunday morning childcare is provided from 9:15am – 11:45am (during worship service, as well as during the education and fellowship hour) for children under age 5. Childcare is also provided during our Wednesday night education program, Club CPC, and for all parents involved as volunteers with this program. We also provide a service that any parent involved in a volunteer capacity at church may request childcare during their church commitment. Please email us to make a childcare request.
