Worship & Music
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
SUNDAY MORNING Worship: 9 & 11 a.m.
We gather for indoor worship each Sunday at 9 a.m. in the Great Hall and 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary. 8 a.m. worship in the Chapel is currently suspended during Chapel renovation. Expected completion is fall 2023.
- Masks are not required when we gather together at either campus (Penn Street or Hemphill), but are still strongly recommended at church gatherings, particularly for those who remain unvaccinated or are at high risk.
- Worship spaces have sections reserved for social distancing, for those who feel more comfortable in those areas.
These are challenging and rapidly changing times, and we ask for grace, kindness, and respect of each other as we move forward. See you Sunday!

LABYRINTH AT FPC
FPC’s outdoor labyrinth is an eleven-circuit labyrinth patterned after the labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world. Located in the northwest corner of the church campus, the labyrinth is open to members and visitors. You are invited to walk, listen to your heart and take the time you need. You may feel relaxed or refreshed or have a deep spiritual experience.
