To live our Faith with Hope and Love

Douglas Avenue Presbyterian Church invites you to join in Sunday worship.

Our worship service follows the rich Christian tradition of reading scripture, singing hymns and being enriched by special music for worship, participating in prayer, and hearing the Word of God read and proclaimed.

We desire to grow in spirit and understanding as disciples of Jesus Christ.  We'd like to invite you on the journey.

We strive to pattern our daily lives after the example of Jesus Christ and to lead all members of the body toward this goal.

Service is held in the sanctuary every Sunday at 9:30 AM

The Service is traditional and lasts about an hour.

We praise God by singing traditional hymns accompanied by piano.

The Third Sunday of every month a contemporary service is held in place of our traditional service.

Fellowship time is held immediately after each service in the fellowship hall.
