Calendar Highlights

Join us on Wednesday Nights @ FPC
New Bible Studies start January 12th:

“The Sermon on the Mount” (Bible). A line by line study of the Matthew 5-7.
The Sermon on the Mount is not about an ideal life in an ideal world, it is about the kingdom life in a fallen world. The central theme of the Sermon is summarized in Matthew 5:48, “You shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” The word “perfect” does not refer to sinless or moral perfection. It indicates completeness, wholeness, maturity – being all that God wants a person to be. This goal, although we never attain it in this life, should continually challenge us to greater service for the Lord. Teacher will be Debbie Hurt.

“The Grumblers Guide to Giving Thanks; Reclaiming the Gifts of a Lost Spiritual Discipline” by Dustin Crowe (book) We will discover how gratitude is pivotal to experiencing beauty, goodness, and hope of God. The author identifies the biblical foundations of thankfulness and traces how it can reshape everyday Christian living.
We will learn how to practically apply the discipline of thanksgiving in both simple and extraordinary ways, even when the surrounding circumstances tempt you to dwell
on the negative.

“Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life” (book) by Tish Harrison Warren. Where does God show up in our ordinary routines and lives?  Each chapter in this book looks at something we all do every day – losing our keys, sitting in traffic, brushing our teeth – through the lens of liturgy and offers a spiritual practice based in each activity. Come and discover the holiness of your every day. Teacher will be Courtney Bowen.

A Welcome from the Pastor

  • We fell in love with First Presbyterian the first Sunday we visited. Each Sunday thereafter our feeling of belonging increased because of the warm welcoming arms of the congregation; the sermons that speak directly to how we’re feeling about the state of our world and our place in it; the leaders we have seen step up in the church of all ages, genders, and cultures; the beautiful bells we can hear from our house; and the church’s historical connection to my family (y’all know how sentimental I am). This past Sunday we made it official by joining this church that already felt like home and joyfully watched as Wilder professed his faith and was baptized. What a very special day it was for our family and we look forward to growing in our beloved church for many years to come.
