(In order of the Liturgical Year)
Children’s Christmas Pageant
Begin Advent season with an annual Providence favorite. The Children’s Christmas Program is a proven delight which includes a cast of Biblical characters and livestock. Please come and hear the PPC children tell the story of Jesus’ birth, and then stay for a cookie party afterwards.
Christmas Pageant in the Sanctuary featuring an array of angels, livestock, wise men & women and of course, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus
Blue Christmas Service
During the Advent season, we proclaim and celebrate that Jesus is the light of the world. As people of faith, we anticipate the coming of Jesus’ light into the world, but we also know that there is darkness in the world and in our lives. Christmas is a difficult time for people who are grieving and hurting. The Blue Christmas worship service is a time to acknowledge the dark places in our lives and to look forward together to Christ’s coming light.

The services, which conclude in the courtyard with lighting of the candles and “Joy to the World,” are subject to change in the event of inclement weather.
Ash Wednesday Service
Lent is the 40-day season beginning on Ash Wednesday, during which we prepare ourselves for the events of Holy Week. This is that last week of Jesus’ earthly life which begs for preparation so we don’t miss what God is doing when Jesus enters Jerusalem, celebrates the Passover with his disciples, is arrested, convicted, crucified—and then on the third day, is risen. What is going on? How do we prepare for THAT? Prayer, fasting, alms-giving, reflection are four classical ways to do so. Join us on Ash Wednesday to prepare ourselves for the season of Lent.
This is liturgical service recalling Jesus’ last supper with his disciples and the “love command” that he leaves with them. We too will share in a simple meal and celebrate the Lord’s Supper around our tables.
This is a service of darkness; we hear the story of Jesus’ death spoken and sung. Please click here for the scripture readings and musical anthems that were the 2016 Tenebrae service.
Easter Sunrise Service (weather permitting)
Start celebrating the Resurrection very early Sunday morning at the Sunrise Service (7:00 am) in the courtyard where the sun rises behind the Pastors as they lead us through worship. This early morning service is followed by a delicious, hearty breakfast prepared by the Men of Providence.
Worship on Easter Sunday
Alleluia! Come worship the Risen Lord! Easter Sunday is joyful and joy-filled. Come and celebrate: “He is Risen!”
Homecoming Sunday (first Sunday in May)
Worship on this special Sunday, which is always the first Sunday in May, guarantees you’ll hear some stories about this Church’s rich history and some really special music provided by musically talented members of the congregation. The 11:15 am worship is followed up by lunch under the oaks with delicious food prepared by our congregation and delightful fellowship. Come, enjoy and bring a dish to share.
Youth Sunday (May)
In May, the youth of PPC take on the worship services providing scripture readings, prayers, stories, sermons and music. This is one of PPC’s most anticipated services each year.
