Welcome to the Pastor’s Corner, and welcome to the website of the First Presbyterian Church of Greenlawn! We hope that you will find here helpful resources for your spiritual journey.
That early Christians were called the “people of the way” is a reminder to us that we have not yet reached our destination, but continue to make our way along the path of discipleship. What is true of our lives as Christians is also true of this page and site. It, like us, is “a work in progress.”
If you would like to share any comments about this site, page or the sermons here included, or if you would like to request prayer, please feel welcome to contact me at fpcgpastor@gmail.com

And “may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Cor. 3:14)

 

Message From the Pastor
September 2017

As summer comes to an end, we look ahead to Rally Day (September 10th), which we traditionally celebrate with balloons, special worship and an afternoon picnic.  Rally Day, a great Sunday to invite our friends to church, is also the first Sunday that we return to our 10:30 a.m. worship time.

Rally Day has a long and proud history in American Protestantism.  It was early recognized as a time to rally Christian youth beneath the banner of our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of our salvation.  Today it remains an occasion to intentionally open our hearts a little further to the Spirit of God at work in our lives and in our world.  It offers the opportunity to take note of the obstacles to our own spiritual development, those emotional attitudes and social fears that block the opening of our personalities to spiritual formation and spiritual consciousness, to deeper awareness of the ways the Holy Spirit is working in our midst, bringing life out of death and transforming us, degree by degree, after the image of Jesus Christ.

May this Rally Day be a time for all of us to follow Christ more closely as He leads us, a time to deepen our trust that Christ really has called the church into being and really is faithful to his promise never to abandon it.  Let us live into our calling as disciples, companions (literally, people who eat bread together) along this journey of faith.

 

Together in service,
Pastor Fred
