SERMON AVAILABILITY: Many of the sermons preached during our morning worship services are transcribed and available electronically.  Please call the church office (919-682-5511)  for more information on how to obtain a copy of a sermon preached at First Presbyterian Church of Durham.


All children are welcome in worship, so if you prefer to keep your children (including infants) with you during worship, this is certainly allowable. 

Care for children, newborn and up, is provided during worship on the second floor of the Education Building, rooms 203 and 206. The 3-6-year-old children join worship following the sermon for "A Time with the Children" and may remain in the sanctuary with their parent(s) or caregivers for the remainder of worship, or can return to the second floor childcare space(s). 

There is a changing table in the narthex behind the sanctuary, and reading books on the pews in the narthex. Worship bags and interactive bulletins for children are available for children to use during worship.  Request these from an usher.  

The FPC-Child-and-Youth-Protection-Policy-with-Application requires two caretakers in each classroom. These caretakers are able to contact ushers during worship, should parents need to be reached.
