A Word from Our Stated Supply Pastor

by PPPC

“You shall proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants…it shall be a jubilee for you.” Leviticus 25: 8-10 These familiar words of scripture came to my mind this week when I heard news reports that “Juneteenth” has been established as a new national holiday. Today, as I write, it is the eve […]

Care Corner

by PPPC

Pastor Eileen’s sermon last Sunday struck a chord with me. There is a part of me that has a very hard time forgiving certain things. I know Jesus says we should forgive as many times as it takes but at what point do you draw a line? And are the two mutually exclusive? Can a […]

Coffee Fellowship

We successfully held our first coffee hour since shutting down due to COVID last Sunday. It was held outside on the porch of the manse and was enjoyed by all. We will endeavor to continue with this protocol, weather and other conditions permitting. Accordingly, there may be days when we are unable to offer this […]

Zoom Sunday School – Lace Up Your Sneakers!

by PPPC

It would be so much more convenient, if we could build the faith of children (and adults) by somehow cramming it in all at once, as we used to do before a big test in school. Ha! But it doesn’t work that way. We grow our faith over time when we experience the knowledge we’ve […]

Care Corner

by PPPC

We are living is some difficult times right now. As I think about what is happening in our world right now I am once again struck by the courage of Jesus and some of his followers during his time on earth. Jesus always stood up for the right thing. He always challenged injustice. I wonder […]

Gratitude and Generosity!

Zoom Sunday School: Build the Bridge

by PPPC

Most children, in families having some exposure to the Christian faith, can tell you all about the story of Christmas. For at least a month before Christmas, you are bound to observe multiple lawn nativity scenes, often mixed on the same property with spectacular seasonal decorations of all sorts. The significance of Easter, however, is […]

A Word from our Stated Supply Pastor Eileen

by PPPC

This week on Wednesday we will once again observe St. Patrick’s Day. Like so many things this year it will seem odd not to have St. Patrick Day parades and corned beef and cabbage specials at local eateries. Traditionally on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish for the purposes of celebration. So go ahead and […]
