Sunday Morning Worship Service (in the Sanctuary)

Our Sunday morning worship service is held at 10:00am and is based upon a traditional liturgical model that helps worshippers experience the transcendence of God through music, prayer, Scripture, sermon and sacraments. It is a family-friendly service that welcomes people of varying backgrounds, beliefs, abilities, race, gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation.

The Sanctuary is open on Sunday mornings for prayer, meditation, reflection and rest. Anyone who may not want to walk through the parking lot or climb the steps is encouraged to use the Mountainside entrance, which is handicapped accessible. If you need assistance, please notify an usher.

Join us for coffee hour after the worship service. If you are a visitor, please introduce yourself to someone nearby. Our congregation is very friendly and would love to meet you. Please sign our Friendship Pad so we can put a name with a face and send you a copy of our newsletter.

Bible Study Wednesdays at 10:00am.

Join us Wednesdays at 10:00am beginning March 14 for our new Bible study series: "Encouraging Bible Verses."

There are many encouraging Bible verses that help us to know that there is a loving, caring God who understands the frailties of human life and we will find encouragement and hope for both today and the future.

Seven 1-hour sessions will be held through April 25. The group meets in the Youth Romm on the lower level of the church building. The sessions are led by Barbara Johnanson. All are welcome to join us for this time of learning, fellowship and fun.

Chancel Choir

Our Chancel Choir is a dedicated group of individuals who lead our congregation in worship on Sunday morning. Its members form the backbone of our congregation, serving in various capacities as lay leaders and supporting everything we do. As a tight-knit group of people, they care for each other in a way that testifies to our Christian identity as the Body of Christ.

In addition to regular worship participation, the Chancel Choir has also performed at various venues, including Carnegie Hall (during the annual Memorial Day concert) and the Father English Community Center in Paterson. The Choir participates in our annual Christmas concert and various other concerts held throughout the year.

Hand Bell Ensemble

Our hand bell ensemble offers an opportunity for everyone from the accomplished ringer to the curious newcomer to find a place among friends, learn how to ring the bells, and become a valued partner in this musical discipline that requires group coordination.

There are many people who make the Packanack Community Church such a unique place to experience God, and there is no end to our corporate life of worship, fellowship, mission and outreach. Join us and discover how your gifts can enhance our life together as we share the good news of Jesus Christ with others.
