Heritage Series

 Do people ever ask you, “Just what does your church believe as Presbyterians?” Let’s be honest, maybe you even ask yourself that same question. Few are the people these days that come to a church because of a certain theology. Most times we attend a church based on certain ministries they offer. Maybe the location or service times attract us. Maybe you wind up at a church because someone invited you and you loved it, but you are a little unsure what it is that this church believes.

Presbyterians have a very long history, one that dates back to the Reformation in the 16th century. Our particular church has a long history as well, being chartered in 1890. And with such a long history it’s important for us, at different times, to look back and make sure that we understand who we are and why we believe what we believe. In this preaching series we will be looking at many of the things that make us distinct. The easiest way to describe us might be to say that we are a Reformed…Evangelical…Presbyterian Church. Each of those is a distinct marker for us. Our goal over the next few months will be to help us as a church understand our heritage – who we are and what it is that we believe. We will look at many of the great doctrines of the Reformed Faith as well as the practices that make us distinctly Presbyterian.

We hope you will join us for this journey and that you will be encouraged in your faith even as you grow deeper in your understanding of God’s great work in our church. If you miss a sermon you can find it on our Facebook page and on the “Sermons” page of this website.
