Hymn Sings

First Presbyterian Church hosts three annual hymn sings during the year. The music department of First Presbyterian Church and musical guests from other churches and groups gather to perform in our sanctuary in celebration of God’s work and to support the Soup Kitchen of CC MI. Canned goods and a voluntary cash donation are received at the events.

February: The Annual Mrs. Edison’s Hymn Sing is held  during the Edison Festival of Light in honor of                         Mrs. Mina Edison. (Three performances 1:00 PM, 4:00 PM, 7:00 PM)

July: First Celebrates Freedom hymn sing (7:00 PM performance.)

December: The annual Christmas Carol Sing is also held in our sanctuary to help celebrate the season and to assist those less fortunate in our community. (Three performances 1:00 PM, 4:00 PM, 7:00 PM)

Celtic Sunday

In honor of our Celtic heritage First Presbyterian Church particpates in the Kirkin’ o’ the Tartans during our worship service one Sunday in the month of February. Participating in the service are the members of the St. Andrew’s Society of Lee County and Representatives of the Clans. We also have as a special musical group, the Harp & Thistle Band of SW Florida.

Palm Sunday

On this special Sunday the music department presents special music to prepare us for Easter. Join us as we celebrate with music and praise!

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. In contrast to joyful Easter celebrations when Christians worship their resurrected Savior, Maundy Thursday services are typically more solemn occasions, marked by the shadow of Jesus’ betrayal.

Communion is served at this worship service.

Easter

Easter is not only the greatest Christian feast; it is the fulfillment of our faith as Christians. We welcome you to join us during our joyful Easter celebration of our risen Lord.

Thanksgiving Sunday

We give thanks for God’s blessings in our lives, especially on Thanksgiving Sunday.

Following the service we gather in fellowship and share a Thanksgiving meal.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Each year, we gather together for one of the most memorable and moving events of the year – our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service.

This service is always a highlight of the year as friends, families, and loved ones gather together to worship, sing our favorite Christmas songs, and celebrate the beauty of Advent through the lighting of candles.
