Rev. Jill Duffield preaching, with music from the Chancel Choir Ensemble. Scriptures: Jonah 3:1-5, 10 and Mark 1:14-20.


Also Sunday

Church School

    • Sandie Gravett video series: New Testament Hymns on our Adult Church School playlist. By all accounts, worship among the first followers of Jesus included singing. Scholars have identified texts in the New Testament that may be among the earliest hymns to Christ. In this series, we will look at some of those passages and consider what they tell us about the theology of the first Christians and how they made that theology part of their worship life. We will also think about how those passages have influenced some of our doctrines and our singing.
    • Commitment Class begins series on “Science & Faith” led by Jerry Beavers. 10 am on Zoom; for link contact Mary Eagle at Continues through February 14.
    • Homebuilders & Faith Matters meet on Zoom at 10 am to discuss weekly faith questions. Contact Doug Key.

“… the gleaming edge of faith itself …”

Well, friends, 2021 is off to quite a start, isn’t it? I am afraid to say we have nowhere to go but up. I’ve thought that too many times as of late only to be proven wrong. As I write this, I am worried about what will happen on January 20. I am...

Opening gates, building bridges

My daughters are much more attuned to what is happening in our nation and world today than I ever was at ages 16 and 13. In the 1980s, I cared little for what was happening beyond my own little teenage bubble. But my teenagers have questions; they...

An Extra Note…

OUR FAITH COMMUNITY has been serving God with joy since 1824. (The Greensboro Historical Museum was our church in the late 19th century.) We celebrate that history, but we are more excited about our future! We believe we are called to share Christ’s message of love and grace in the things we do and say. We are not perfect, but like Presbyterians everywhere, we are reformed and always reforming. We think you can find a spiritual home here. Come and see!
