Who We Are

We are a part of the Reformed Tradition within the Body of Christ striving to worship and serve God, nurture discipleship, and care for the needs of God’s people.

 

The Body of Christ…

 We are part of the Presbytery of Florida which  has 45 churches, and extends from Monticello in the east, to Pensacola in the west.  We regularly gather for work and worship with each other to be the Body of Christ.

 

Worship and Serve God…

Gathering on Sunday mornings and at other special times and holy days we gather to give honor and praise to God.  We sing our praises, hear God’s word read and proclaimed, participate in prayers, and lift God’s name on high.  We do this not to our glory, but to give glory to God for the saving grace given through Jesus Christ.  The choir provides a variety of musical anthems as they give praise to God.

 

Nurture Discipleship...

It is our joy and privilege to have dedicated Church School teachers to share lessons fr om the Bible and from experiences in life.  Each Sunday children gather at 9:30 for lessons which are then followed by a time of music.  Smiling faces convey the message they are joyful and filled with the love of God.

  

Adult Church School meets at 9:30 as well.  Classes range from Life-based Bible Study to in-depth  Biblical Studies, and exploring ways to interpret events in the news from a Biblical perspective.

Thursday evenings provide an opportunity to delve deeply into the exegetical and  content historical of the Bible.

Periodic special trips also help draw us closer to one another, engaging in the kind of fellowship that is beneficial for all ages. 

 

Care for God’s People…  

Often times difficulties arise whether it is poor health, the loss of a job, the death of a loved one, the desire to reconnect with other people or with God.

When difficulties strike we surround those affected with prayers, love, and actions.  No one is left to deal with disasters by themselves.  When one weeps, we all weep.  When one rejoice s, we all rejoice. 

As we strive to care for God’s people, we feed the hungry and the homeless. Each Friday volunteers serve a hot lunch to people in the community. We have a range of 50 -  95 guests per week. When the weather becomes chilly in the winter and drops below 40 degrees at night we open a cold night shelter for those who have no heat.

Christmas food baskets are provided for families in the commu
nity who might otherwise go hungry at one of the most sacred times of the year.

We also support Sharing and Caring, Presbyterian University Center (FSU), Crestview Area Ministerial Association, 2-cents-a-meal program, Jail Ministry, Thornwell Home and School for Children, and much more.
