Wonderful Wednesday

Sarah Johnson will be leading a group study on God the Holy Spirit as it is understood in the Reformed tradition. This group will meet in the church library at 6:00 pm.

Blake Teller and Todd Boolos will be leading a small group Bible study that meets at their homes at 6:00 pm. For more information please contact Blake or Todd.

Mike Davis will be teaching a class on Esther. “The story of Esther features dramatic elements centering in human interactions: love, hate, humility, pride and arrogance, plotting and scheming, threats of genocide and more. Although the Almighty is not directly mentioned in this book, His working through these elements to accomplish a marvelous deliverance is clear and encouraging.” The class meets at 4:00 pm at the church.

Wonderful Wednesdays begin on September 14th. We will be continuing our Children’s program for those children from Kindergarten (5yr old) through 6th grade. A nursery will be provided for younger children with parents attending an adult small group

Meals on Wheels

MEALS ON WHEELS are currently serving 112 people. We are needing seven more people to make casseroles. It would only be twice a year. If you are interested in serving in this mission. PLEASE contact Beth Hall @ 601-630-6314 or Cindy McClung @ 601-529-2017.

Meals on Wheels

The Flower Ministry is looking for volunteers who would like to assist in taking the altar flower arrangements apart, making smaller arrangements from them, and delivering them to the sick and shutins. There are openings for the 4th Sunday of the month ( possibility of 12 times a year) and the 5th Sunday (5x a year), or any random Sunday of any month.

Welcome

No matter who you are, where you are from, where you are in your personal faith journey or past church experience, you are welcome and wanted at First Presbyterian Church.

God is good, all the time!
