Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Independence Iowa!
One of the things I have enjoyed the most about our church and its leadership is our ability and willingness to embrace change. When it comes to change we normally approach it one of two ways. We are either reacting to it or we are creating it. I prefer the proactive approach. It keeps us moving forward and relevant in our community.
Our Spiritual Life Team has made some changes. Specifically with regard to our Treasure Seekers program and starting a new program: Jr Church. In addition you will see that we are offering Confirmation this fall as well as Bible Studies for youth and adults. All of this is intended to help us all grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus. It is my hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to nurture your soul and the souls of our children.
None of these things work without volunteers. If you are asked I encourage you to say yes to helping us create an environment that encourages people of all ages in their faith journeys. And a big thank you to all of our volunteers! You serve with energy, imagination, intelligence, and love. It makes a difference! And making a difference is why things can never stay the same.
I also want to draw attention to our completed patio project. It looks great! I want to thank those who helped work on it and who contributed financially to the project. Our Property and Finance Team is committed to keeping our facility looking nice and fully functioning for our congregation. It is appreciated!
