Welcome to
First Presbyterian Church of Arlington Heights

Worship with Us

Worship will be held outside at 11 a.m. every Sunday, weather permitting*, until your Session makes a decision about worship in the sanctuary. Please join us. Remember to bring your own chair if possible and to wear a mask if you are over the age of 6.
*Weather permitting means that it will be at least 50 degrees by worship time and it will not be raining.

We will continue to make on-line worship viewing possible with a worship service that has been recorded in advance. This will be available at any time on Sunday.
