What to Expect
When you arrive at First Presbyterian Church of Scottsbluff, and you first enter the doors, we hope that you will immediately feel welcome. At FPC, we have a place for everyone, and all people are welcomed and loved as part of the family. We have coffee and cookies in the chapel – the first big doorway on the left – and some tables where you’re invited to have a seat and visit.
As you pass through the lobby, you will notice a small table to your right. Every week, we have a deacon at this table who is ready to greet you, offer you a bulletin and/or a clipboard with coloring pages and paper for any kids you may have with you, and to answer any questions you might have.
Just beyond the double doors that lead to the stairs, we have an elevator that can take you either up to the narthex and sanctuary, or down to the fellowship hall.
Once you enter our newly-remodeled sanctuary, you can expect to hear the buzz and chatter of people who are eager to be here for worship and who are excited to see each other again.
Our worship services incorporate many elements – from singing and readings to prayers and a sermon. Though our worship services often follow a similar format from week to week, our Music and Worship team dreams up creative and inspiring things to enhance each worship service. Every week, children who would like to participate are invited to come forward for a brief children’s message.
First Presbyterian Church loves music. Our church sings hymns as well as some contemporary music, and we are blessed with a beautiful pipe organ. We have choirs – a chancel choir, a hand bell choir, and a cherub choir – who offer their musical gifts on a regular basis, and we have special music from time to time.
On the first Sunday of every month, we celebrate Communion together. For more information on Communion, you are welcome to visit our page on Sacraments.
If you are looking for a church to visit, are hoping to find a new church home, or are just in the area passing through, we hope that you will consider coming and worshiping with us. Our morning worship service begins at 10:00 AM, and our Sunday School for children of all ages follows worship at 11:15 AM. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office via the contact form.
