6/26/16 – Grand Storytelling

At First Presbyterian we often tell the Bible story rather than read it. We find that it comes alive. Recently we held a Storytelling Workshop with Jim and Janet Stahl. Sunday numerous tellers, from youth to adults, share the story of JACOB. Music will enhance and illustrate each story of Jacob’s life.

We also WELCOME our new staff, Summer Youth Director Intern Ross Shipman and Administrative Assistant Jennifer Johnson. Join the reception in Fellowship Hall after worship.  It’s an exciting morning. Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:15. Worship at 10:30. I can’t wait to see you!

6/19/16 – Why Forgive and How to Do It

If you heard about brothers who got into a rift over the family wealth, and the result of that rift was that one of the brothers stole the inheritance, would you predict that the split could ever be overcome? Probably not. You might predict that the injured party would retaliate or suffer mental anguish or never speak to his brother again. When you think of the Bible stories about Jacob and Esau which story comes to your mind? Perhaps it is the one where Esau EMBRACES his estranged brother. What a shock! The offended one forgave. How did he do it? Hear ADELMO RUIZ tell the story.

Sunday we talk about Why Forgive and How to Do It. The topic is relevant to everyday family life. We also have a treat as The Dennis Walters Family comes to share with us as they take their son to college. The worship service begins at 10:30, Sunday School for all ages at 9:15. RECEPTION for the WALTERS in FELLOWSHIP HALL right after worship. I can’t wait to see you!

6/12/16 – Wrestling for the Blessing

Have you ever wrestled for something? Perhaps it is a good grade for a difficult class. Or, you might be praying for something that is hard in coming to you. Or perhaps you have a personal struggle you are trying to overcome. Jacob’s story in a night-long wrestling match with God encourages us. Come hear JANET STAHL tell it! JOIN US during worship as five youth are confirmed. They have “wrestled” for this privilege through a nine-month study. Come support them and celebrate with them. Enjoy Lemonade on the Lawn after worship. Sunday School at 9:15 for all ages and worship at 10:30. I can’t wait to see you!

READ Genesis 32.
