People to Think About this Week

This week we welcome and celebrate Parker Firkus following his baptism on Sunday, March 17th!

In baptism, we are called to a new way of life as Christ’s disciples, sharing the good news of the gospel with all the world. 

   Presbyterians celebrate baptism as a communal act of public worship! Sunday we, as the body of Christ, said "YES" to walking alongside Parker as we seek to nurture and love him as his family of faith! 

    Speak to Pastors Neeley or Erin if you are interested in baptism for yourself or your child.

Lent 2024 Theme

Wandering Heart: Figuring out faith with Peter

This Lent, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves. By following Peter’s journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out—just like us.

This Lent, we will look for ourselves in the stepping stones of Peter’s story. We will reflect on the stages of our own faith journeys as well as who and what has shaped us along the way. As we wander, let us tune our hearts to sing God’s grace. May we rest in streams of mercy, never ceasing.
