Posted by Tim McConnell on

How do we learn to Belong? How can we step out of loneliness and isolation and find true belonging? Church, we are attacking the pervasive loneliness and social isolation we see in our community, and it is making a difference. The first two messages in this series have provoked passionate...

Belong

Posted by Tim McConnell on

This week we kicked off our fall series called Belong. If you missed it, catch up here. Our church is attacking the pervasive loneliness and social isolation we see in our own lives and those around us. It is time to find true belonging. The Samaritan Woman at the Well is an excellent guide to...

Happy Birthday

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Today is the day. First Pres is 149 and entering its 150th year of ministry. August 17, 1872, a church was organized in the presbytery with eight members on the rolls, five women and three men. God has been faithful to sustain this ministry ever since. If you happened to miss the Vision...

Show and Tell

Posted by Tim McConnell on

"Don't just tell them. Show them!" That's what they teach pastors in preaching class. It is a weak point for me, to be honest. Don't just teach the point, tell a story to illustrate the point. Don't just explain the doctrine, share an anecdote or parable or picture to make the doctrine tangible...

Celebrate Religious Freedom

For the City

Posted by Tim McConnell on

We are thrilled to welcome Rev. Katie Fowler to our pulpit this weekend. Katie began as an intern with us, continued into full-time ministry, then finished seminary and was ordained right here at First Pres. A few years ago, she and her husband Chuck responded to God's call to plant a new church...

Future Church

Posted by Tim McConnell on

We are learning about Future Jesus, the Jesus we see in the book of Revelation. Jesus entered time from beyond time. When Jesus came down, He came out of eternity and into time. But Jesus is already past, present and future. Is that too sci-fi for you? The point is, the Future...

Trust in Jesus

Posted by Jennifer Holz on

Greetings First Pres from Camp Elim! This week we have 110 children and youth participating in camp. They are learning about Jesus, spending time in the Scripture together and having the time of their lives. As I write this note to you all today, they are in cabin discussions with their...
