Here we are in the middle of summer, and I have been reflecting on the past year...since last July. We have accomplished much, and I wanted to highlight some of what our church did specifically in and for the community in the last 12 months. This list is in no particular order, but it illustrates our commitment to our community.
Time and Labor
Beginning Sunday June 14th, we will begin operating on a “summer schedule” through the end of August.
Sunday School will begin at 9:00 a.m., and Traditional Worship in the sanctuary will be held at 10:00 a.m.
Following is the full list of changes that the summer schedule will bring:
The Session made the decision to move church school and worship an hour earlier during the summer to encourage people to continue their church attendance on Sundays, at the same time giving everyone an opportunity to start their summer Sunday activities earlier.
I am so excited about what God is doing here at First Presbyterian. The month of May has just been spectacular in the life of our church. Our new early service is being well received; we had a number of enjoyable church wide meals; we recognized 8 senior high graduates of our congregation; and we confirmed 10 youth in the faith.

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.
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.
NUTS ON A MISSION is a unique, delicious gift for your neighbor, a relative, or just for yourself! Contact the church office or Emmy Floyd to purchase. Each pint jar costs just $6.00, or pick up two jars for $10. A case of 12 jars costs $60. All proceeds will go toward missions.
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.
