This Sunday we will be joined by the Boy Scouts from our own Troop 23. The young men in the scout program spend hours being trained, mentored, and encouraged by the scout leaders to become responsible adults. in this morning's readings, we disciples of Jesus are reminded of an often over-looked lesson, which is modeled by Jesus in Mark 1:29-39.
Transfiguration Sunday. The living God encountered Jesus, Peter, James, and John and transformed their lives. That same living God will be with us on this Sunday. Two spiritually enriching experiences will form the heart of this service. We will be ordaining and installing officers for the class of 2018 and we will celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper on this Transfiguration Sunday. The Gospel of Mark gives us a glimpse of what the future holds for those who place their trust in the Risen One. See Mark 9:2-9 for details.
The theme of Lent: “Spiritual Depth Development”
Ash Wednesday Worship at 7:00 p.m.
Please join us in the lounge for an intimate and meaningful service that leads us into the season of Lent. Scripture and song will prepare us to receive the Imposition of Ashes.
The 1st Sunday of Lent will take us into the wilderness. A dry, dark, intimidating place to be. But that is where God does his best work within us. Read Mark 1:9-15 and Psalm 107 to begin the wilderness journey. We celebrate an Emerging Worship Sunday.
One of the most courageous decisions to make is the decision to take the voice of God and Jesus seriously. When we do, an incredible adventure unfolds. Read Romans 4:1-3, 16-22 and Mark 8:31-38 – do we have the courage of Abraham and Peter?
Worship at Edgewood
Sunday Morning Worship is at 11:00AM September through May
and 10:00AM June-August
Worship services at First Presbyterian Church of Edgewood vary in style from Sunday to Sunday. Most weeks, worshipers will experience what we call "Classic" worship -- a traditional Presbyterian Reformed order of worship with organ accompaniment and choir music leadership. Once per month, "Emerging" worship takes place. This service, while still focusing on the 5 tenents of Presbyterian worship -- gathering around, proclaiming, responding to, sealing upon our hearts, and bearing into the world God's Word -- is presented in a relaxed atmosphere. A video projection screen is placed in the front of the sanctuary, a worship ensemble of mixed instruments accompanies song leaders, and God's Word is presented in a multitude of ways. Worshipers in this service will experience a wide variety of presentations, from reader's theater to VBS kids singing, choral presentations to standard sermons.
