We Welcome You!
First Presbyterians -- members and friends -- worship together at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings! YOU are invited!
Check out this link to find out how much our church collected:
SOUPER BOWL OF CARING
A special offering for Souper Bowl Sunday was collected on February 7 during worship with ALL money going directly to MICA.
The Souper Bowl Sunday movement to help those who are hurting and hungry started with a simple prayer, by Brad Smith, a seminary intern at a Presbyterian church in South Carolina: "Lord even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are in need of a bowl of soup to eat."
In response to anti-Muslim rhetoric and suggestions by some in our country to openly discriminate against Muslims, the session of First Presbyterian unanimously approved, on behalf of the congregation, this statement in support of Muslims in our community. Please click on the link below.
Prayer is a vital part of the life of our church. YOU are important to the life of First Presbyterian Church of Grinnell. If you have a prayer concern, please contact the pastor at the church office at 641-236-6059. Prayer requests can be concerns, needs, praises or thanksgivings.
If you so desire, your prayer concern can be placed on our prayer chain so members and friends of our congregation can pray for your needs. No prayer request is too small.
A Time to Pray
Every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., a small group gathers to spend time
in prayer. Others are always welcome. The format is quite simple and the form is
silent prayer. Even if you don’t usually pray or aren’t sure how, you are
welcome to come see what it’s like!
The group meets in the library. This is a “drop in” group. Come whenever you can.
Please pray for the work of the 2016 Session and Deacons.
