At First Presbyterian Church of Annapolis, we praise God together on Sunday mornings. A typical worship service lasts about an hour and includes prayers, scripture, a sermon, and singing. Children are an important part of our community, and we welcome them in worship. There are worship bags in the back of the sanctuary to help older children follow along with the service. Second graders and younger students move upstairs for Godly Play after Time With Children, an element in the order of worship.
Communion is offered approximately once per month. All Christians, regardless of denomination or affiliation, are invited to receive the sacrament. Communion is typically by intinction. Congregants are invited to come forward by the center aisle to receive the bread and to dip it in the chalice, then return to the pews using the side aisles. The worship leaders serve persons in the pew who have difficulty walking forward. Gluten-free bread with separate chalice is available near the baptismal font. To find out when Communion will be offered again, please email the church office. To watch a video about Communion at our church, CLICK HERE.

(2021-22 schedule TBA.) We continue our partnership with St. Mary’s Catholic Church each year offering Taizé Worship from 7:30 to 8:20. Yearly schedules will be posted each August; from September through May, we host monthly Taizé worship services with our Catholic brothers and sisters. Locations alternate between their chapel at St. John Neumann (620 Bestgate Road, parking on-site) and the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church (free parking available at St. Mary's Church). Join us for these unique services of silence, prayer, chant, and Scripture modeled after the ecumenical monastic community in Taizé, France.
