Volunteer this holiday season and share this experience with a family member or friend. This is a great opportunity to involve children, teens and grandchildren.
Life on Court Square
Four children and youth from our congregation were baptized during a worship service held at the North River, and another of our adult covenant partners renewed her baptism vows. Watch highlights from the day.
A bunch of our regular groups are starting up again in September, so it’s an ideal time to jump in to grow and connect with each other.
The congregation has approved these covenant partners to serve in leadership roles at First Pres.
Employment Opportunity First Presbyterian Church of Harrisonburg, VA is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Children’s Ministry Assistant. This part-time position requires daytime availability, and includes Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
Our mission at First Presbyterian is “Loving Christ Jesus, Boldly Proclaiming Truth, Serving Our Neighbor, Growing God’s Kingdom”. First Presbyterian Local Missions Committee is encouraging everyone to put their faith into action this summer by volunteering with one of our local mission partners.
If God is love, and if love never fails, then we are left with a wonderful promise: Our Father will never fail.
That word love always makes you think of romantic ideals, happy things, joyous moments. Here in I Corinthians 13:7, though, Paul throws in a word that seems out of place.
Let us be honest with ourselves. When something bad happens to someone you do not like or to an enemy, have you ever thought or said, “this person is getting what he or she deserves. I am glad that this has happened?” When you have these kinds of thoughts, you delight in evil.
We live in a sports-obsessed world where winning, getting our fair share, demanding our “rights” and looking out for ourselves is justified, even admired. Our fortunes — or at least our attitudes — often hinge on whether or not our teams win or whether our perceived needs and wants are fulfilled. But winning is not love and neither is the pride or justification in winning — or even in being right.
