In all worship services, you are always welcome to come as you are. Our members and visitors come from all over the Washington DC area, and we often welcome visitors from throughout the country and world.
Please wear whatever makes you most comfortable. Each week we welcome worshipers in jeans, suits, and everything in between.
Worship services at NYAPC take place on the following schedule:
May 19th through Labor Day (Summer)
10:00 A.M. Worship Service
Our single summer service features traditional music, communion on the first Sunday of each month, a time for children, and sharing of joys and concerns.
Labor Day through Memorial Day (School Year)
8:45 A.M. Worship Service
Our early service is less formal during the year. Many families with small children choose to attend this service. We serve communion by intinction once per month, and at the end of the service gather at the front of the chancel in a circle to share joys and concerns and our prayers. The music at this service is sometimes more casual, and often we share a hymn sing at the beginning of the service.
11:00 A.M. Worship Service
Our later service is slightly more traditional in nature. Music sometimes includes instrumental pieces. Children are welcome at this service, as well, and can use arts and crafts at the table in the back of the sanctuary during worship. We serve communion once per month by passing the trays of bread and wine through the pews.
