Sundays at SHPC

Worship Services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Summer Worship (June and July) is one Service at 10:00 a.m.

Sunday School classes begin at 9:30 a.m. every week except during June and July when they begin at 9:00 a.m. Click HERE for more information about Sunday School classes.

  • Assisted Listening System devices:  If you have trouble hearing the service, devices are available at the back of the Sanctuary for your use. These small units broadcast from our sound system and are received on a small handheld device with an earphone. You can adjust the volume to suit your needs. If you already use one and still have trouble hearing the service, talk to an usher and/or notify the church office.
  • Children’s Worship: Children & Worship is offered to children ages four to second grade during the 11:00 Service. Participating children will go to worship with their families. Following Children’s Time, children go with an adult leader to the Children & Worship area located below the Sanctuary. All children should be picked up immediately following the service.
  • Worship Committee Mission Statement: Our purpose is to worship, glorify, and honor God by gathering together as a community of believers where the faithful are equipped for God’s service in the world. Our corporate worship will be reverent and mindful of our devotion and service to God as we read Scripture, celebrate the Sacraments, praise God in song, confess our sins, and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to enhance the worship experience and encourage the people to participate fully and regularly in the worship life of the church, so that all will be renewed by the Holy Spirit and grow as disciples of Christ.

Flower Guild

Prayer and Purpose:

O Lord, help us return the beauty of nature which Thou hast given to beautify the church for Thy greater glory. 

The purpose of the Flower Guild is to enhance worship services in the church by bringing fresh flowers arranged by members to the Sanctuary. The presence of flowers symbolized Christ’s victory over death. Each time we arrange flowers we experience the joy and privilege of taking a beautiful and precious gift from God and creating a living offering to Him.

  • Join the Guild: Each person brings a special and unique talent to the committee’s work whether as an experienced arranger or a first-time arranger. If you would like to use your time and talent by serving on the Flower Guild, please email Adrianne McPeake. You will be assigned to work with an experienced member of the Guild.
  • Provide a Flower Arrangement: If you would like to provide flowers on a Sunday in honor or memory of a loved one (or for a special event such as a baptism), please contact the church office to see if your preferred Sunday is available. The cost is $125 for one arrangement and $175 for two.

Questions? Email Kathryn Callaway.

Baptisms

Baptism marks the beginning of new life in Christ. The new way of life to which God calls us is one of deep commitment, disciplined discernment, and growth in faith. The gifts of the Holy Spirit, given with and through Baptism, equip and strengthen us for the challenges of Christian faith and life.

As there is one body, there is one Baptism. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) recognizes all baptisms by other Christian churches that are administered with water and performed in the name of the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Baptism is ordinarily celebrated on the Lord’s Day in the gathering of the people of God. The presence of the covenant community bears witness to the one body of Christ, into whom we are baptized.

To schedule a baptism, the first step is to reach out to the pastor you would like to officiate either by calling the church office or by email. Call 522-9804 or email Jay Howell, Mark Lampley, or Rachel Hamburger.

Weddings

We are honored that you are considering SHPC for your wedding. In the Reformed tradition, marriage is a covenant in which God has an active part, and which the community of faith publicly witnesses and acknowledges. All weddings at SHPC are conducted in a manner appropriate to this covenant. Click on the “Wedding Policy” button below for more detailed information about weddings at SHPC.
