Worship Services

“Come in your faith, come in your doubt.” Catonsville Presbyterian Church invites all to worship with us and experience our community of faith. Wherever you are in your faith journey, you will be welcomed here.

Worship is at the center of all we do. Rooted in the rich liturgy of the church throughout the ages, our services are traditional without being stuffy. Congregational singing, with choirs and musical accompaniment, releases the spirit to soar in praise. Strong preaching that speaks to both the heart and the mind challenges us to live out our faith in the world. In response to the Word, we pray for the world God so loves.

Worship Services

Join us for worship either in person or using one of our many online options. Worship is on Sundays at 10:30 am (9:30 am, June through August).

In-Person

We gather for worship in the sanctuary. Our focus remains on keeping everyone safe, so we respectfully request that attendees wear a mask to protect those who are not currently eligible to receive the vaccine. The bathrooms will be open, and no reservations are required. We ask that family members sit together and practice social distancing. The balcony will be closed.

Accessibility

An accessible entrance with a ramp can be reached from the Frederick Road small parking lot. Inside, larger pew spaces are available in the front to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers. Accessible restrooms are available as well. Large print bulletins and hearing assistance earphones are provided in the rear of the sanctuary.

Children in Worship

Children are welcome in worship as part of the Whole Family of God. We are delighted they are here. For safety reasons we are not currently providing child care on Sunday mornings, but Fellowship Hall is available for families to use. The service can be heard in the room, plus there’s plenty of space for active children. A parent may also take a child to the playground before, during, and after worship. Children’s Bibles and books are available in the back of the sanctuary, along with clipboards, crayons, markers, and paper.

Welcoming All God’s People

Catonsville Presbyterian Church recognizes that people of all ages have varying abilities and needs. If you meet or see someone with differing needs, whether an adult or a child, please recognize that underlying conditions may occasionally cause behavior that might be misinterpreted as inappropriate. Please reach out. Ask if there is a way that you might assist, and otherwise be understanding and supportive. If you or a family member has special needs, please speak to one of the pastors or the Deacon of the Day. We want to fully appreciate each individual’s gifts and talents and help you to feel a part of this faith community.

Online

For those who choose to worship online, worship is livestreamed on both Catonsville Presbyterian’s public Facebook page and YouTube channel. You may also follow the service via Zoom. The link for the Zoom meeting is sent out each week in our email newsletter. Recordings of the service may also be viewed on either Facebook or YouTube afterward. To aid you in following the service online, the Order of Worship is posted each week on the home page and is also sent out in our email newsletter.
