What Happens in a Service?
Our services last about an hour. Services are held in our renovated Sanctuary and feature the choir, hymns, and a traditional sermon. Following the 9:45am Children’s Moment, children and youth, ages 3 to 10, are invited to attend Sunday School in the west education wing. We celebrate communion the first Sunday of each month.
Difference Between the Services?
The first worship service held at 9:30am is geared towards families and includes our Children’s Moment. This is where the pastor invites the children to the front of the sanctuary for a brief message. Following this 9:45am Children’s Moment, children and youth ages 3-10 years old leave the sanctuary for Sunday School classes.
All services feature the choir, hymns, and a traditional sermon.
How Should I Dress?
Visitors are sometimes concerned about what to wear. Vanderbilt church is not a particularly formal church – there is no Sunday dress code! Some men wear jackets and ties, some wear khakis. Some women wear dresses, some wear slacks. Dress comfortably AND respectfully.
What Do My Kids Do?
Children of all ages are welcome and encouraged to participate in worship services. On Sunday mornings, nursery care is available for infants and toddlers. After the designated “Children’s Moment” children and youth ages 3 to 10 are invited to Sunday School.
What About Adult Sunday School?
YES! Sunday school classes are held each Sunday morning during our season months (Oct-April). Limited Sunday School classes are offered during our off season months (May-October).

What About Communion? What if I’m Not a Member?
The Lord’s Supper is the sign and seal of eating and drinking in communion with the crucified and risen Lord. In this act, we remember that during his earthly ministry, Jesus shared meals with his followers and sat at dinner tables as a sign of acceptance of the sinner and the outcast.
The invitation to the Lord’s Supper is not just for Presbyterians or “members of the church.” All who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are invited to partake of the Lord’s Supper. Access to the Table is not a right conferred upon the worthy but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love. Even one who doubts or whose trust is wavering may receive the bread and grape juice (in place of wine) in order to be assured of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.
We look forward to partaking in the Lord’s Supper with you.

Will I Be Asked to Give Money?
We do bring an offering. It is for our members, affiliate members, and regular attendees. If you are a visitor or guest, please do not feel obligated to give.

What Else is Going On?
