Thoughts for our Journey (updated monthly)

Rev. Dave Carlson

September is a big month at First Presbyterian Church.  We’re celebrating homecoming on Sept. 14, with the adult Sunday school classes inviting newcomers to join them for the fall season of study and discussion.  But our Sunday school classes offer more than just study and discussion.  They are small groups of people who are eager to get to know each other a little better each week and help and support each other in whatever way they can.

This fall, we are launching several new small groups called ChristCare groups.  Rather than meet on Sundays, ChristCare groups meet whenever it works best for their members, and not necessarily at church.  And while they gather around a shared interest, need, or hobby, ChristCare groups are also there to help you in your Christian walk as a follower of Jesus.  This might mean praying for one another or serving together out in the community.  It might mean studying the Bible together or some other spiritual writings.  Not all ChristCare groups do the same things – that’s up to the members of the group.  But each seeks to connect their interest, need, or hobby to our Christian faith.

Here is a list of ChristCare groups available for you to choose from, along with a contact person who can answer any questions: ChristCare Groups Overview.  It’s fine if you just want to visit a group or two before deciding if a ChristCare group is for you.  But please, I would encourage you to consider trying a ChristCare group now or in the near future.  All groups are open to visitors and new members, whether from within the church, from among your family or friends, or from your neighborhood, school or workplace.  Everyone is welcome!  And as always, I am available to answer any questions you may have or guide you in this or any other way.

To God be the glory!
Pastor Dave
