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

Mary Fopma 
as our new music director!

Mary comes to First Presbyterian with a love of church music and organ. Throughout her life she has played for various churches learning to play in her childhood church. Mary is a long-time children's music teacher, currently teaching at Central Iowa Christian School.
Pastor Kirsten wrote, Mary "has a deep sense of worship and wanting to use her gifts to connect congregations with God."

Mary begins with our congregation on February 26. During the coffee time there will be a "meet and greet".
We look forward to Mary's ministry with us!     Welcome!

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.
