Money affects your heart. Whether you are in plenty or in want, money has a direct connection to your stress level, your anxiety, and the health of your relationships. It is no wonder, then, that Jesus talked about the relationship between our treasure and our hearts.
For a four-week period beginning October 19, we will look at the many ways that our treasure (time, energy, money) affects our spiritual and emotional lives. Join us in worship starting October 19 as we begin our new sermon series called Treasure. We will explore Matthew 6 and Jesus' teachings on money, giving, worry, and more.
At the end of the four weeks, we will have an opportunity to make personal commitments of our offerings to God through our church in the coming year. We will receive commitment cards in the mail, and cards will be available on Sunday mornings. We will bring these commitment cards to worship on Sunday, November 9.
I hope that you'll join us in the coming weeks as we look at Jesus' teaching on how we can avoid some of the common pitfalls related to money, and how we can give our lives and our treasure to God.
In September of 2010, we began “The Gathering” as a time for fellowship, food, and worship. When I looked at the calendar, I could not believe we have had four years of the Gathering. Time sure has flown by.
One major part of The Gathering has been the time of worship led by the Gathering band. Many people in the church have grown to love the kind of music shared in the Gathering and have asked if our church would ever consider expanding “The Gathering” into a full service of worship with more music.
Beginning on September 7th, we will be going through "The Story" which is a condensed chronological Bible as we learn how our story fits in with God's grand story of Creation / Redemption / and Consummation.
Join us each week as we study "The Story."

We had a wonderful kick-off to the church educational year yesterday. The Gathering returned for the start of it’s fifth year. The energy level was high, and people were glad to see each other after the summer break. The Gathering Band was happy to be back together and led every one in joyful singing!
Our Sunday school time was packed as we began our study of “The Story.” We learned that God created us because he wanted to be relationship with us.
The Story is a chronological condensed Bible which we will be using as a church wide resource for the whole year. If you have not joined us in this journey, you can pick up a copy at the church office after Wednesday. (We had to order more!) If you cannot make it to Sunday school, you can watch the weekly video on RightNowMedia.org. If you do not have a logon ID and Password, you can contact the church office with your email, and you will be sent instructions on how to sign up. Once signed in, you will see “The Story” in the first position under “Pastor’s Picks”
WOW is back! Women of the Word returns in September with a nine-week study from Beth Moore called "Children of the Day."
Is family life a challenge? Is work is driving you crazy? Do you know God has a purpose for your life, but can't figure out what it is? Know that your circumstances are not coincidental. And God's timing is impeccable. Join Beth Moore on the Thessalonian shores as she walks you through the truth of each verse of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. In “Children of the Day,” you'll face crises, afflictions, relationships, doubts, concerns, and fears. Find encouragement for living the Christian life now and hope for when Christ returns.
Ladies, mark your calendars and make plans to join us Monday evenings, September 8-November 3, 6:30-8:30 PM, or Tuesday mornings, September 9-November 4, 9:15-11:15 AM. Questions? Contact Katherine Team. To make childcare reservations for the Tuesday morning session, please contact Meredith Trout (336-248-2140, ext. 203).
Well, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) did it again and made a number of very controversial decisions at its latest meeting in Detroit. Before I explain what those decisions are, let me remind you of the structure of the PCUSA.
The Presbyterian Table meets Thursday nights at 6:00 PM, reserving a table at a different restaurant each week. Anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table." This is an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense. We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.
I am excited to announce a new way that First Presbyterian Church can help you develop as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We have partnered with RightNow Media to make available to you a large library of free video resources. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. You can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector. There are over 2000 videos from some great teachers including Max Lucado, Francis Chan, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, and more.
FaithHealth NC, a program through Wake Forest Baptist Health, is dynamic partnership between faith communities and health care providers. The mission and purpose of Faith/Health is to develop strong links between medical and faith communities in providing ministries of help and healing to individuals. In Lexington that partnership is between our own Lexington Medical Center and various churches. Our congregation, in fact, has covenanted to be a part of the FaithHealth program.
Several years ago, a number of people from our church took a Saturday to drive over to Madison, NC to observe the men of First Methodist Church cooking peanuts. We had tasted their peanuts and were interested in how they cooked them. Following that trip we searched for a cooker we could use to cook peanuts ourselves, but couldn't find one. We now have contracted with the Madison church to sell us peanuts wholesale.
