Technology at First Presbyterian
One important change taking place in churches across the United States is the use of visual technology in worship. Beginning in April, our congregation is introducing this technology into our worship with the installation of large screen monitors in the sanctuary. As we work to grow in our worship life, this latest development will add a new dimension to our worship of God. The technology itself is “state of the art,” which will allow us to also use our sanctuary in a number of creative ways. We’re excited!
Spring at First Presbyterian Church, Lowville
The congregation has planned a number of important activities and events for the months of April and May 2013. The goal we are pursuing is to strengthen the spiritual life of the congregation, its knowledge of the Bible, and continue to promote a lively fellowship—all to the end that we are be able to worship and serve God. In store are the following:
Beginning the second week in April, three Bible Study Groups will meet to work through Marcus Borg’s book, Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time. Borg surveys the Bible from a “modern,” non-literalistic approach to the Scriptures, which it is hoped will spark lively discussions into the nature, role, and importance of the Bible for our church and time. Friends from the community are invited to attend. For details, please visit the Study Groups page.
Small Groups Get-Together
In the last year, our congregation has started up four small groups involving over 30 individuals in personal spiritual formation. On April 28th, members of all four groups will met together to share their experiences and make plans for strengthening their fellowship with each other. The goal, of course, is always for a deeper spiritual life or our members and for the whole church.
Pentecost Preparations & Celebration
One of the most important gifts our Pentecostal sisters & brothers have given the rest of us is an appreciation of the importance of the Holy Spirit and the life of the Spirit for the church. This year, our congregation intends to make a “big deal” of Pentecost, the Festival of the Spirit, including recognition of the many “gifts of the Spirit” that we have received from God. Pentecost is May 19th. In addition to the worship service of celebration there will be a pot-luck fellowship meal, which itself will be a sharing of gifts. Members of the community are invited to join with us.
