Special Worship Plans for June 7th

Dr. Rev. Michael JinkinsSunday, June 7 will be a special day to share in the life of our congregation. In addition to the church picnic immediately following worship, children and Sunday School leaders will share in worship a celebration of their past year. They will offer songs and short readings which seek to include all children. We have also been offered the opportunity to host the Rev. Dr. Michael Jinkins while he is in Western Michigan for an extended weekend. Dr. Jinkins serves as President of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where numerous clergy from our area attended seminary. In many ways, our worship will be a celebration of Christian faith formation through all ages and life experiences. Click here for more information about Dr. Jinkins.
Special conversation with the Rev. Dr. Michael Jinkins 
On Sunday, June 7 at 9:00 am, President Jinkins from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary will reflect with us on connections between the seminary experience and local congregational life. Change permeating our culture affects seminary life and education, as well. What has evolved? What remains the same? And as we all seek to live faithfully every day, what insights can President Jinkins offer about our experience of church witness in contemporary society. We will meet in Room 314-315.

This I Believe

...it helps me to think of God as a sculptor forming us out of the clay in His hands, breathing life into us and bestowing on this creature some element of His Deity.

Seeking a Church Home

I chose the church  partially because of my Presbyterian background and my prior awareness of First Presbyterian Church, but more importantly because it represents a compatibility with my beliefs and values and deep commitment to social, financial and human justice.

On becoming a new member

We loved the church’s community involvement, the friendliness of the church family and the weekly teachings. We wanted to become part of that involvement and to have our children grow up in such a wonderful environment.
