Special Services

Throughout the Church year there are days which call Christians together aside from Sunday. These days include Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. The Presbyterian Church also holds a service of healing and wholeness twice a year and is an occasional location for Micah Ministries mid-week Lent and Thanksgiving service.

Christmas Eve Services

4:30pm- A service designed for families with young children
7:30pm- Lessons and Carols, music by the choir and Communion is celebrated
11:00pm- A meditative service including the celebration of Communion

All services include candlelight.

Ash Wednesday Service

This day marks the beginning of Lent, the forty days before Easter. The Ash Wednesday service allows Christians the space to prepare themselves to journey with Christ to the cross. The imposition of ashes is a central feature of this service and reminds Christians of their morality and need for penitence.

Maundy Thursday Servics

This service is the traditional name for the fifth day of Holy Week. From the Latin mandatum, meaning ‘command’, the church annually recalls the “new commandment” given by Christ to his disciples this night of the institution of the Lord’s Supper.

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”John 13:34

Good Friday

This 7:00 pm service held on Good Friday is a solemn service intended to recall and evoke the mood on the day of Jesus’ crucifixion. Often the story of the passion of Christ is read from the Gospels in a dramatic re-telling. The power of music and silence aid Christians as they ponder the depth of Christ’s suffering through the progression darkness.

Healing and Wholeness Services

In Sunday morning worship there is a time for prayers of the people and intercession. Twice a year we have a special service to expand upon this prayer time. The service of healing and wholeness is dedicated to individual intercessory prayer that is conducted on Sunday afternoon. All persons who desire healing for themselves or others, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, have an opportunity to pray one-on-one with a minister. If you have any questions regrading this service please contact the church office at 373-7057.

Micah Services

Micah Ministries is a coalition of eight Fredericksburg churches, including The Presbyterian Church, who minister to the homeless population. Once a week during Lent and on Thanksgiving eve, special joint services are held at one of the churches. These services are an outreach to the broader Fredericksburg community and all are welcome.  Click to find more information about Micah.

Each Wednesday during the season of Lent, the Micah Ecumenical Ministries will offer worship services from 12:00-12:30 p.m., with a lunch following at the host churches.

An offering will be collected to support Micah Ecumenical Ministries
