What To Expect

Whether you're a lifelong church-goer or this is your first time in a church, you will find a warm welcome at Spanish Fort Presbyterian Church. We invite you to get to know us and join with us in our worship of God. Visit us this Sunday and experience SFPC for yourself. We hope that you will join us this Sunday so that your expectations may become experiences. See you soon!

When are your services?
We have two services on Sunday morning, 8:30 am and 11 am. Our 8:30 service takes place in our Chapel and is a bit more informal; our 11 am service is in our Sanctuary and includes our Adult Choir, Bell Choir and often our Praise Band and Creative Arts Group (youth). Nursery care is provided for both services. At our 11 am service, there is a special Wee Worship time for children.
How do I get to Spanish Fort Presbyterian Church?
SFPC is a white modern-looking building at the intersection of Hwys 31 and 225, at the top of Spanish Fort hill on the eastern side of Mobile Bay.  It's easy to find!
What can I expect
on my first visit?
Sunday mornings are very active at SFPC! After you park in one of our visitor-designated spots, feel free to enter any way you like. There are directional signs, and you will find greeters who can direct you to Sunday School classes and worship opportunities. Children are provided with specially-designed bulletins to make their worship experience more inclusive, and adults' bulletins help outline your active participation in our order of services. In our 11 o'clock service, we have a special time of greeting for everyone to receive a warm welcome in the worship community.

After the service, on the second Sunday of the month, we have a "Courtyard Conversation" time with light refreshments for informal fellowship and the fourth Sunday each month we gather for a church potluck meal after our 11 o'clock service. All visitors are cordially invited to be our guests.
What is a Sunday
service like?
Each week our Worship Planning Team and Pastors strive to lead our community in meaningful worship of God. We try to blend music from the great hymns of the church, contemporary praise songs, spirituals as well as scriptures, prayers, affirmations of faith and proclamation of the Word through preaching. Our services invite a high level of participation, giving each worshiper a chance to offer our God our fullest worship.

At the 11 o'clock service, there is a special time for the children to be involved in the service and receive a special message for them. Following this time, they are invited to go to "Wee Worship" in our Education Building.

The first Sunday of each month, we celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper and celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism as requested by families.

Several times a year, we hold a service for Wholeness and Healing. This is a short, meditative service which invites people to offer up their individual requests for wholeness and healing in communal prayer and leave the service in silence.

We also mark the days around Easter and Christmas, as well as other significant days in the church calendar with special services. 
What can I wear?
Our members and friends can be seen in casual to traditional clothing, and all people are welcome regardless of their dress.
