First Presbyterian Church has been active, nearly over active at food 4 kids this week. Just look at these shots taken by Deacon John Rowe of Presbees in action! Those participating are expected to have given away (when all is said and done) nearly 10,000 lunches! Jesus said, ‘feed my lambs.’. We’re working in it…

I opened the sermon on Ash Wednesday saying something about “What are you giving up for Lent?” Lent is a time when so many of our brothers and sisters in the family of faith are practicing Lent by giving up a number of things: chocolate, ice cream, smoking, being generally nasty, etc. But it is [...]
