Worship With Us
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into God’s presence with singing.
– Psalm 100
Liturgy (worship) means “the work of the people.” At Arlington Presbyterian, our liturgies come alive in our work together.
Our songs, prayers, scripture readings, and the sacraments of communion and baptism are all acts of the liturgy we do as equals and beloved ones of God.
The primary instrument of the congregation is the congregation itself. Not the piano. We don’t have an organ. We create music and sound through our traditional hymnal, a cappella songs, and a range of music genres. We have percussion instruments throughout our worship space to add spirit and layered participation into our songs.
Know that you don’t need to have perfect pitch to sing the songs. You don’t need to know or have heard the scriptures before in order to have a connection with God’s Word. You don’t need to keep a perfect beat on percussion to accompany the songs. The Spirit is the one that connects and holds us together in the liturgy.
As we share and work together, we are formed into God’s faithful, loving people, following the way of Jesus. Freedom has been found here. Freedom will continue to be found here. Thanks be to God.
We worship at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings. A staffed nursery is available from 10:30 am through the end of worship.
We’ve set up COVD safety protocols to keep us as safe as possible as we worship indoors together. Our protocols include presenting proof of vaccination, continuous mask wearing while inside our space, and staying home if you are sick. APC livestreams its worship service on Facebook to give choice on how to participate in worship.
Join us at 11am on Sundays to create community and belonging in South Arlington.
OUR VISION STATEMENT:
Moved by God’s love and through the power of the Holy Spirit, Arlington Presbyterian Church is challenged by the Word of God to welcome all, to nurture spiritual growth, and to serve with compassion. We proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord!
