First Presbyterian Church

First Presbyterian Church joyfully welcomes all to our National Independence Day Worship this Sunday. Come hear the foot-tapping duets of Mary Jane Truster on piano and Ann Fenimore on organ as they begin our worship with “America The Beautiful” by J. Raney, the moving hymn “Eternal Father, Strong To Say” by L. Smith, and conclude our worship with “Battle Hymn of the Republic” by Smith and Hustad.

A musical focus will continue with our guest musician Carol Rushton playing her own arrangement of the beloved hymn “How Great Thou Art” and Andrew Martin, youth of this congregation, strumming a guitar solo.

Pastor Dena Vittorio will preach from the audacious words of Jesus in Matthew 5:43-48 in a message entitled “No Boundaries To Love.” Just what was Jesus thinking when he taught us to “love our enemies?” His radical requirements for Christian living not simpy address moral issues, but the very health of the human spirit.

We are a congregation eager to share the grace of God as we walk together in the Light of Christ! There is a place for you at First Presbyterian.

Plum Creek Christian Church

While Paul was preaching in Athens, Greece he discovered the people who lived there worshiped many little gods. This greatly disturbed Paul because he knew they were really worshiping Satan with these pagan practices. The great philosophers of their day thought Paul was truly ignorant by the way he taught. Little did they know how much they all had in common. Before Paul’s life changing encounter with the God of the universe; Paul too was full of head knowledge. It was only when Paul encountered Jesus on the dusty road to Damascus that his spiritual eyes were opened. Paul before Christ was all about following traditions. Our opinions and traditions are futile. What does matter is the fact that God Almighty is still in the business of healing, helping, and holding us up when we rely on him alone. We are all in need of a Savior. You too can experience a dramatic life-changing encounter with Jesus no matter what road you have been on. Look to the Bible as the true authority. Read Romans chapter 10:9-10. If you don’t own a Bible contact the church office at 645-5058. For more information on salvation visit with us the Sunday at the church.
