what's happening in the life of the church
Join us as we strike hunger in July. Sign up for Daily Bread or bring food to donate for Conway Cares.
Come see how the crazy visions of Ezekiel from flying creatures, to a temple the size of a city, or even the walking dead are actually symbols of God's judgment and renewal for His people.
Dr. Jonathan Linebaugh will present a lecture entitled “Reforming the Care of Souls” that looks at the ways in which Martin Luther, Thomas Cranmer, and the Puritans sought to recast the regular rhythms of pastoral care with a renewed evangelical orientation. A time of discussion will follow the lecture.
We are collecting school supplies throughout August, in support of our ministries on Mercy Drive. Collection bins are available in the Welcome Center, on the first floor of the Edington Ministry Center, and under the Angel Wing, between the Sanctuary and Allen Hall.
This is a time open to all the women in our church family to gather for food and fellowship, with featured speakers. It’s a great event to invite coworkers, friends, family, neighbors for a light summer treat together.
An introduction to First Pres’ initiative in the Mercy Drive Community. Topics include a scriptural overview for serving those in poverty, avoiding toxic charity, an overview of the Mercy Drive Community, and specific strategies for working with children and teens in this community.
We would like to invite members of the congregation interested in singing in the choir to join us at both the 8:15 am and 11:00 am.
Dr. Wesley Hill will present a lecture entitled “Reforming Reading” which addresses the way in which the Protestant Reformation radically reshaped the public and personal practice of reading the Word of God. The lecture will speak to the devotional, liturgical, and academic significance of reading, studying, and meditating upon Holy Scripture in light of Reformation theology. A time of discussion will follow the lecture.
To better equip you and encourage you for this weekly time together, two information sessions will be offered. We will have “The Moms in Prayer Booklet” available at each information session for the price of $7.00. This useful prayer guide will enrich and expand this prayer journey.

This 7-week course is designed to help people assess where they are in the journey of discipleship, and how they might move toward greater growth and spiritual maturity. In Deeper Connections, we seek to equip and encourage through tools, including a spiritual gifts inventory, to help participants discover not only who God is, but who they are in relationship to God. Knowing who we are in Christ leads us to a deeper understanding of how God is calling us to love and serve, as we ulfill His purpose in our lives. More than offering information, our purpose is to facilitate transformation.
This is an overnight retreat for married couples. All marriages experience challenges: money concerns, family dynamics, parenting styles, and busy schedules take their toll on something that is supposed to feel like a blessed union. Even great marriages need care. They need the time, energy and grace to remember what is truly important.
