Welcome

We lift up our hearts in prayer for the people of Orlando, especially the families of the victims and for the wounded.  We pray for healing and for peace.  We pray for an end to hatred in all its manifestations.  We pray to be instruments of peace.  O Lord, hear our prayer.

We worship on Sundays at two different times, in two different styles   (we think substance is more important than style):

8:30 a.m. Contemporary Worship   An “ancient/modern” contemporary, come as you are service of prayers, new music, videos, communion, candles, and hearing from our core scripture texts.  We call this service “Transitions”

    Pastor Kurtz:

    Please put my childhood friend and past presbytery member Wendy Fowler Benefield who is the granddaughter of Dean Fowler of Gadsden, Al. They have attended briefly on vacation over the past years. While it has been a few years it would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    Please keep the presbytery at Johns Island in South Carolina in the churches prayers. The island was devastated by a tornado recently and while I have not heard from the local church I know there must have been great damage. http://jipc.org/ I don’t believe they still belong to PCUSA however they might. over 300 years of our history.

      Thank you, John. We were unaffected by the storm, thank goodness, but did have a few of our members who had some storm damage. Thank you for thinking of us. Please pray for those who did have damage to their homes, as we give thanks that no one was hurt!
