First and Lafayette Presbyterian churches are proud to announce two joint worship services where both congregations will worship together and share the Lord's Supper.
On Sunday, October 3, 2010 (World Communion Sunday) the congregations will worship at First Presbyterian Church at 10:30 AM. Rev. Drew Ludwig will preach, and Dr. David Bond and the First Church Choir will provide music.
On Sunday, November 7, 2010 both groups will gather at Lafayette Presbyterian Church at 10:30 AM. If the way be clear, First Church's still-to-be-called interim pastor will preach, and Lafayette church will provide music. (If an interim is not yet called by that time, then First Church's Associate for Pastoral Visitation, Quinton Meyer, will preach.)
This idea was enthusiastically endorsed by the Sessions of both churches, and was shared with the Presbytery of Western New York at its September 28th meeting as a shining example of two churches "doing a new thing."
