This Week @1st Pres! 9/27/2015


Who are you? Choosing Sides

We love the Fall Festival that happens this weekend. Keep in mind that this does affect parking on Sunday so give yourself extra time to get to church and to park. We ask that those who are able consider parking further away, reserving the parking lot and nearby spots for those who have difficulty walking.

Rev. Matt Gough


The past two Sundays have been joy filled and worshipful. The children participating in worship is a delight to see. If you have not been then come join us this Sunday
If you cannot join us in person you can always be with us through Internet Streaming.

Theme: Who Are You?

Choosing Sides

These days many people assert their identity by declaring what side they are on. There are so many sides to choose from!  Often, one side or the other declares that God is on their side. Scriptures can be used to support just about any position. During the Civil War many declared that “God is on the side of the North” or “God is on the side of the South.”  President Abraham Lincoln only said:
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
The practice of hearing God’s direction and letting it transform us is our daily faith practice.

Scripture:  Mark 9:38-50, Esther 7:1-6, 9-10
