First Presbyterians -- members and friends -- worship
together at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday
PRAYER is a vital part of the life 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.
