Welcome!

First Presbyterians -- members and friends -- worship together at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings!                         YOU are invited! 

PRESBYTOBERFEST --
All-Church Fest
An evening of fun for all is planned for Sunday, October 9. 

Place -- Ahrens’ Park (shelter house #2) 

Time -- 4:00 p.m. will feature an “Olympics” theme. The competitive events will include such things as spouse calling, nail pounding, bubblegum blowing, and rooster crowing. These are, obviously, highly specialized events that didn’t quite make it into the Rio Olympics

5:30 -- church picnic. Burgers, brats, veggie burgers and beverages will be provided. Tableware will also be provided. Those attending are invited to bring another dish to share.

The evening will close with a devotional time led by Pastor Kirsten.  


Collecting for Heart and Hands Health Clinic
Help the Presbyterian Women! Let us make this a whole church project and help the Heart and Hands Health Clinic. The fall mission project for 2016 is once again under way! Baby items needed for the clinic in Des Moines, Iowa are diapers, lotions and ointments, blankets, and baby Tylenol. October is the last month that we will be collecting items for the clinic. A box is available in the Fellowship Hall marked baby items for the care clinic.

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.   

Would you like an e-mail copy of Pastor Kirsten's sermons? Please call the church office to be placed on the list.
