Sierra Presbyterian Church

At Sierra Presbyterian Church, one of our highest goals is to minister to the spiritual needs of all people, regardless of age, background, or worship style preference. This is why we have three distinct worship services; Traditional at 8:30 a.m., Contemporary at 10 a.m., and Way Contemporary at 11:30 a.m. Interestingly, there’s quite a cross-generational attendance at each service. Some of the younger people like the formality of the Traditional service, while many senior folks enjoy the higher energy worship in Contemporary services.

On Sundays from 6 to 8 p.m. we’ve begun an informal worship/fellowship called “Generations” in the less formal setting of our Fellowship Hall. “Generations” bring all ages together simply to worship our Lord.

The church is located off Highway 49 at the Gold Flat/Ridge Road exit, at the corner of Zion and Ridge Road in Nevada City. For a site map, visit http://www.sier
