8:30 AM  Early Church (on Zoom)

Early Church is an intimate worship experience. It is a venture in “creating church,” taking its name from its gathering time (early on Sunday mornings) and its aspiration (to capture the spirit of the earliest Christians). This service features prayer, music, and discussion of the lectionary text for the day.

Contact earlychurch@fprespa.org for the Zoom link.
