"Worship the Lord with gladness; enter his gates with
thanksgiving and his courts with praise."
Worship is the heart of our life together at Graham Memorial
Presbyterian Church. In worship we direct our attention towards
God and His grace given to us through Jesus Christ, and are
renewed for our life and service in the world.
The word worship comes from Old English roots, meaning "to
create honor and worthiness." Of course, we don't create
God's honor, but we do devise ways which honor God and bespeak
His worthiness. As Presbyterians our worship is centered on
God's Holy Word. In the reading of the Scriptures and the
proclamation of the Scriptures through the sermon, we focus
our attention on God's gracious acts of salvation, culminating
in His most gracious act in sending Jesus Christ His Son.
In Jesus we encounter the Incarnate and Living God and discover
that we are loved and forgiven, and transformed to be His
disciples in the world. Worship grounds us in the reality
of God's presence and activity in the world, and recenters
us to our calling as God's agents of reconciliation.
Our worship at Graham Memorial Presbyterian is a traditional
style. We welcome all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We invite you to join us in responding to our loving and gracious
God through corporate worship. Each Sunday morning at 11:00
am we gather for worship, and celebrate the Sacrament of the
Lord’s Supper the first Sunday of the month.
