COVID-19 Update: The safety of our community is important to us. Numerous changes to worship, regular programs, and ministry events are occurring. For worship changes please refer to the links on our homepage. For the latest information, please sign up for our weekly newsletter here. You will receive an email each Wednesday with up-to-date information. We look forward to returning to normal operations (as outlined below) in the future.
Whether you are a spiritual skeptic, curious about Christianity, or a committed follower of Christ you are not only welcome here but wanted. We strive to be an authentic community of faith, meaning that it’s OK to express doubts, struggle with faith and that we will encourage each other to seek Jesus. Jesus knew that we were all asking questions and searching for fulfillment—that we are thirsty. He said, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” (John 7:37-38)
What should you expect?
You can expect friendly people to greet you at the door and give you a worship bulletin. Once you find a seat you should feel the freedom to participate actively in our worship or to just listen and observe.
Some of you may be thinking, “My experience of church and religion has only been one of boredom, irrelevance, and hypocrisy. Is this church any different?” We are by no means a perfect church; however, we seek to be engaging, relevant, and authentic. We know you may be satisfied, seeking, or skeptical. We are all at some point in a journey.
The philosopher, and one-time atheist, C.S. Lewis claims that the Christian faith is either of ultimate importance or of no importance whatsoever. The one thing it cannot be is “marginally important".
We hope this will be a new season for you to come investigate the claims of Christ in the context of Spring Run Presbyterian Church and come to your own conclusions.
What will my kids do during worship?
Our nursery is a clean and safe environment for children ages infant to 3 years old. We do background checks on all our volunteers working with children. Two nurseries are provided during worship, for newborns – walkers or walkers – 3 years. Children are lovingly cared for during this time. We have set up a number system so that you can quickly be reached if your child needs you. We also have an area for nursing moms and sleeping babies.
If your child is age 3 years through second grade they can go to Children’s Worship. We are attempting to make worship a time when children learn by joining their parents in prayer and praise. Children will remain in worship with their parents until the sermon. At this time, children three years — second grade will have the option to attend Children’s Worship. They will learn about the aspects of worship such as prayer, music, tithing, etc. These children will return following the sermon to finish worshiping with their parents.
What should I wear?
Most people come to Spring Run dressed casually; khakis, jeans, and a collared shirt.
How can I get connected?
There are many ways to get connected at Spring Run. Here are a few options:
Check out a Community Group. A Community Group is a gathering of eight to fifteen people (including their kids) meeting in homes throughout our community at various times during the week. A Community Group involves elements of learning about the Christian faith, prayer, and sharing in each other’s joys and burdens in life.
