+ Welcome to First Presbyterian!

LENTEN SOUP DINNERS AND PRAYER AND PRAISE SERVICES

The Elders have called our congregation to fast together. Beginning Ash Wednesday, February 18th, we’ll begin fasting together the Wednesdays of Lent. Every Wednesday we’ll meet in Fellowship Hall at 6:30pm for a simple soup-dinner. We’ll then move up to the Sanctuary for a Prayer and Praise Service, and then our fast will begin: Just water until Thursday dinner the next day. (We won’t be meeting for a meal Thursday nights. We’ll break our fasts at our own homes with our own dinners.) We’ll continue this practice of meeting, eating, praying, praising, and fasting all the Wednesdays thereafter, up to the Wednesday before Easter. That last Wednesday, April 1st, fast we’ll end together at our Maundy Thursday Church-Family Seder. Let’s be a part of these times for spiritual renewal together.

FAMILY NIGHT SEDER: Thursday, April 2 at 6pm we will hold a family style Potluck Dinner celebrating Jesus Christ, our Passover Lamb, look for sign up sheets in Fellowship Hall to let us know how many are coming and what you will bring to share.
