Worship with Us
What To Expect
The principal and defining element of our church is its worship. Music is essential to our traditional service, which involves the entire congregation through hymns, anthems, prayers, reading and preaching of the Word. The beautiful, Biblical, stained glass windows in our Neo-Gothic sanctuary inspire us to open our hearts and minds to encounter a living God’s loving and transforming presence.
“I enter the church choked with cares of the world. The glowing color attracts my sight like a flowing meadow and the glory of God steals into my soul.”— from Ardmore’s 100th anniversary booklet “Through a Glass Lightly.”
Sunday morning worship services begin at 10:30 A.M.
Adult Sunday Morning Class begins at 9:00 A.M.
Ardmore Presbyterian Church is on the corner of Montgomery Avenue and Mill Creek Road across the street from the Suburban Square shopping center. We are a short walk from the Ardmore regional rail station and SEPTA bus lines.
Parking is available across the street in the Suburban Square parking lot. Limited parking and accessible parking are provided behind the church, off Bleddyn Road.
Most public areas of the building including the sanctuary, are fully ADA accessible. There is an elevator on the first floor (accessible by the Church Office entrance behind the church) for those who have trouble using the stairs. Hearing-aid headphones, large-print hymnals and worship folders are available from the ushers. Audio of the worship service is played in the Chapel and in the Nursery for those who need to step away from the Sanctuary.
WHAT TO WEAR
Most people wear business casual attire, but you will also see some of us in suits, and others in jeans. We care more that you are here than what you wear.
FOR THE CHILDREN
Children begin their time in the sanctuary for worship and the children’s message, and then may choose leave the service for their own Church School experience. This typically includes a lesson and craft, as well as play time.
Quiet activities are available in the Walker Chapel inside the Sanctuary for kids who need a break from sitting in the pews. If your little one needs a break from worship, a nursery is located just off of the Walker Chapel so parents have the option of remaining with their children, and are able to hear the Worship Service transmitted into the nursery area.
