Our beliefs are based upon the Old and New Testament Scripture as the unique and authoritative Word of God.  We are a member congregation of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO).

Pastor's Corner

Around the Table

Special events often take place while sitting around the table. It starts at an early age. The kid’s table was by far the more fun table during Thomsen family gathers. It wasn’t long before the olives found their way on to our finger tips to be consumed or eventually find their way back to the serving bowl in the middle of the table (yew).

It was at the kitchen table that Betsy and I first announced our engagement to her parents. Upon hearing the news Betsy’s dad slumped in his chair in complete surprise while Betsy’s mom smiled with unsurprised joy.

Christ eagerly looked forward to sitting around the table to share the Passover meal with his followers (Luke 22:15). It was at that same table that Jesus took a bowl of water, knelt down and washed His disciples’ feet. While sharing the Passover meal Christ said of the bread that he took from the table that it was His body broken for them. He said of the wine on that table that it was His blood shed for them.

The meal shared around that table has become for us what we call communion or the Lord’s Supper. This Thursday you are invited to join us around the table for a simple meal followed by worship and communion. We will not be celebrating communion on April 5 so this will be your only opportunity to share communion in April.

            WHAT: Maundy Thursday Meal, Worship and Communion

            WHEN: Thursday, April 2

            TIME: 6:15

            WHERE: First Presbyterian Church, Hillis Hall

Shalom,

Pastor Peter
