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

YOU are invited!

                         JULY 14!

How many trombones will lead the big parade as it passes through Grinnell this July? What trouble, right here in our hometown, can be eased by Professor Harold Hill?

YOU are invited to enjoy a wonderful evening of music and fun as we attend the July 14 (a Friday night at 7:00 p.m.) performance of THE MUSIC MAN being produced by the Grinnell Community Theatre! 

Our evening will begin with a 
...........Music Man-themed supper, at the church, starting at 5:30 p.m. For those needing to come from work, serving will continue until 6:15. 
...........The light meal is being provided at no cost. Just come and enjoy! 
...........We’ll also include, at the church, a little “Music Man” trivia and fun before sharing rides to the performance at the high school.

Please arrange for your own tickets to the performance. Tickets are on sale at the Arts Center and at McNally’s, at a cost of $15.00 for adults and $9.00 for students. 

We hope you will be able to attend this evening of smiles, laughter, and song!

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.
