Welcome 

Spruce Street Church


Worship 
You can request a bulletin  to follow our service by radio - Listen to WCLG-AM 1300 at 10:45 each Sunday.
Our normal Sunday morning schedule includes two worship services: one at 8:30 and one at 10:45.

Exception:  Fifth Sundays
In months with five Sundays, we meet for worship only at 10:45 a.m. on the fifth Sunday, and then we enjoy a covered dish lunch on the Lower Level of the church in Fellowship Hall.  

Wednesday evening worship services at 7

People who attend can expect to celebrate the Eucharist, listen to a meditation on the weekly Psalm, and prayer.

This is a great service for anyone whose Sunday schedules prevent church attendance.  In November, we will have a special service on Thanksgiving Eve (November 22), with a bite to eat just before worship.
