A Reforming Life of Faith

A Reforming Life of Faith

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, begun by Martin Luther. The Presbyterian Church emerged from this reform of the Church. We, like many local churches, are celebrating our roots by reflecting on this event and its meaning for us today. Our preaching and Summer Colloquium focuses on Reformation themes. We trust you will be blessed and challenged by the breadth and depth of our June worship services.

A special note during our Interim season: One of our highest priorities is to serve our congregation with worship services that are glorifying to God—resonant, instructive, and inspirational. Since September 2016, preaching has been shared by First Pres pastors and staff, servants of the Word who are members of First Pres, outside speakers, and our Bridge Pastor Tom Elson after he arrived in January. Interim Senior Pastor Steve Schibsted will begin preaching after he joins us at the end of June. Please pray for our worship services, that God's glory will be sought and the grace of Christ will be experienced. In addition, pray for our planning, preparation of messages, and for all to have ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to each of us personally and as a church congregation. Thank you for your encouragement and your commitment to be here on Sunday mornings.

We invite you to follow along with the current sermon series by reading the scripture texts before or after each Sunday. Sermons are archived in our Audio Library, and you can also listen to or download the podcast for each week's complete services (available through the following week).
