Message:  “The Gift of Wisdom” Rev. Leslie


  • Today, December 30 is the last day to contribute to the Evangelism and Mission Committee  collection of the Christmas offering.  This year for our Christmas offering we will be contributing towards a presbytery-wide collection to send a donation for food relief to South Sudan: "Most recently the South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SSPEC) has put a lot of time and efforts into helping the hungry due to the economic instability. The situation was very extreme with wide spread starvation. But the South Sudanese are putting their trust in the Lord and are truly committed to sharing their faith and resources with others.  There is a deep joy in living their lives for the Lord."
