The Rev. Dr. Agnes W. Norfleet preaching a sermon at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church

Most services of worship at BMPC include the preaching of a sermon, usually by one of the pastors of the church. A sermon is not a moral or spiritual essay, nor is it precisely the opinion of the preacher. Rather, it is the preacher’s attempt, guided by grace and the Holy Spirit, to lift up a passage of Scripture, and illuminate it with meaning, giving it the power to shape our own faith journey and call us into deeper discipleship.

The best way to hear a sermon is to join us for worship!
