From the Webmaster: More Additions to the Upcoming Events list on the homepage.
According to Wikipedia, there is no name for a 130th anniversary, but we can’t let the organization of our church (February 23, 1887) go by without a celebration. After all, who knows who will be up (literally) for the next milestone?!
A small committee of your fellow Presbyterians has been planning festivities that will begin BEFORE the official date and continue for a year…remember, it is 130 years’ worth that we need to celebrate!
Our celebration will begin with our own “kick-off” at an October after church potluck. So please mark your calendars now for October 23rd and begin looking for your favorite “tailgate” recipe and get your favorite team colors ready …it’s going to be a “sporting” event.
Please pass the word on, especially to those we haven’t seen in a while – we want a Sunday “homecoming” for all! Oh, yeah, you want to make sure you are there so you can hear what our plans for the year include…spread the word!!!
Christian Faith is in action at First Presbyterian Church of Titusville (FPCOT) . . . from the new understandings of children to the wisdom of the aged. There is a journey taking place, a journey filled with possibilities. Ours is a shared faith journey, led by God's Spirit, and committed to the message of salvation in Jesus Christ.
As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), we affirm the sovereignty of God over every aspect of human life. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we seek "to open wide our doors and proclaim God's grace to all." It is my privilege to welcome you to this household of faith. As you visit with us, be assured that Jesus Christ meets you where you are, accepts you as you are, and desires to help you become what you were created to be. I pray you will discover refreshment and renewal for your faith here at First Presbyterian Church and that you might be led to join our fellowship, and grow in your understanding of and service to the Lord.
Rev. Mary E. Sample
