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...

What will you be when you grow up? We are two days into Vacation Bible School 2021. Did you know that 500 kids signed up this year? Not all of them turned out, but this church has been rocking! What a privilege we have been given to share the love of Jesus with nearly 400 children of our city...

A few years ago, she and her husband Chuck responded to God's call to plant a new church...

Future Church

What Comes Next

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Welcome to summer 2021! The sun warming the rain-soaked grass this morning just feels like new life. The last two weeks at church have felt that way for me. It will take some time before we return to full strength, but I can feel the rising wave of a new chapter for First Pres and I am excited...

Every Part

Posted by Tim McConnell on

What a monumental Pentecost Sunday we just celebrated! I'll be honest, I feel like we just had a second Easter! With all the joy and celebration of the resurrection, only it was the joy of the church feeling reborn in the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Big Blue is back! The church is returning to...

Today Is the Day of Salvation

Posted by Tim McConnell on

One year ago, we were meeting only in private. One year ago, we were sending worship and preaching out online only. One year ago, I was writing to you about Revival. We went through a series called Revival: Five Shifts to Host Revival. The five shifts were from Confusion to Clarity in our...
