Individual congregations within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) vary widely in how they conduct their worship services. At First Presbyterian, Effingham, we strive to blend contemporary and traditional worship styles. All of our worship services, however, will include Scripture, prayer, and music. A useful resource for planning and conducting presbyterian worship is our denomination's Book of Common Worship.
