Sacraments and Occasional Services
This resource guide is designed to orient researchers to materials held at the society that can inform and document a study of the historic forms of the administration of the sacraments and occasional services in American Presbyterian churches. Related resource guides cover Presbyterian common worship and hymnody. These guides are not intended to cover the theology and forms of worship used in contemporary churches. For information about current PC(USA) doctrine and practice, contact the PC(USA) Presbyterian Mission Agency, Office of Theology and Worship.
