    REFORMED TRADITIONAL Home / Worship Services / Reformed Tradtional from on . 11 Service Jake Schroeder Vimeo Reformed Traditional ​ 11:00 am ​ Sunday Mornings ​ Sanctuary What is Reformed worship exactly? Well, in the Protestant Reformation theologians like Martin Luther and John Calvin made it clear that we are saved by GRACE alone, through FAITH in CHRIST alone. SCRIPTURE alone is our authority in faith and life as we seek to give all GLORY to God alone. With this new found emphasis on SCRIPTURE, worship in the Reformed Tradition is focused on the triune God and is guided by SCRIPTURE, saturated with SCRIPTURE, and centered around the reading and preaching of SCRIPTURE. For we believe what the Apostle Paul writes about Scripture in 2 Timothy 3:16-17. “16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” We believe that the Lord uses the faithful reading and preaching of Scripture to transform us and equip us to do the work of God’s Kingdom here on earth. In Traditional Reformed Worship we want to pray the word, sing the word, hear the word, and speak the word. For we believe that it is through the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments that we learn more of who God is, and we discover who God is calling us to be. If you want to encounter God through a service of worship that is saturated in Scripture, then I would encourage you to join us for Traditional Reformed Worship in our beautiful sanctuary at 11:00 a.m.. Come join us as we gather around the word of God and are led in singing traditional hymns to God led by our beautiful organ and our sanctuary choir. Our newly renovated organ is actually the largest and most dynamic organ from Fort Worth to Los Angeles and has been profiled in People often call it Traditional Worship, but it’s not just “traditional”. It is REFORMED WORSHIP, and that makes all the difference. different news articles WORSHIP SERVICES Reformed Traditional Contemporary Gospel OTHER INTERESTS Studies and Groups Worship Grow Connect Serve

  • Columbarium | Firstpres

    COLUMBARIUM Home / / Ministries Columbarium First Presbyterian Church has been the focal point shaping the spiritual life of individuals and families for more than 125 years. The seasons of life are celebrated – from birth, baptism, worship, marriage, spiritual growth, and finally death in the Lord. Christians are promised that death is never the final word. With this truth, we can celebrate and honor the lives of members in the very location where we most often shared the love of Jesus Christ together. Ninety years after opening our present building at 11th Avenue and Harrison Street, the east courtyard will be enhanced with a columbarium surrounded by a beautiful prayer garden. A columbarium features a wall of niches that accommodate urns containing the earthly remains of any member or former member of the church and their families.* There could be no more fitting place for the remains of a Christian than a columbarium within the grounds of one’s own church. The surrounding prayer garden is a quiet, peaceful setting in which to remember, meditate, pray, or comfort the bereaved. Inurnment services and other worship occasions may be conducted in the garden. Strong and enduring building materials complement the rich history of the people who built the church and its fine Neo-Gothic architecture. As we are called to be good stewards in this life and for generations to come, land use is minimized. ​ *Eligibility for inurnment is outlined in the Columbarium Policies. The Columbarium MINISTRIES Adults Care College Age First Pres Kids Library/Resources Missions Music Studies and Groups Youth Columbarium OTHER INTERESTS Studies and Groups Worship Grow Connect Serve A columbarium offers an affordable alternative to traditional burial. The fee of $2,500 or $3,000 per niche accommodating two urns includes a granite memorial front with names of the inurned, dates of birth and death, the costs of opening and closing for inurnment, and continuing care. Other final arrangements for cremation and properly fitting urns may be made with funeral homes. ​ Packets containing full information, Policies, and an application are available by email at , at firstpres.com, or in the church office. Karen Jordan (806-341-1794) is the moderator of the Columbarium Committee that manages the columbarium. columbarium@firstpres.com The in the completely re-landscaped cloister accommodates the columbaria and provides a secure area with the installation of a wrought iron fence in the outer arches of the colonnade. Two gates, open in normal operating hours or for special events, are closed and locked at other times. The locked gates can be opened from the inside in an emergency. Protected on three sides by the church building, the garden gives some protection from adverse weather for inurnment services and other small worship services. Benches will offer a place to sit in solitude, to visit, relax, reflect, or comfort loved ones. Inurnment fees over and above the cost of construction will endow ongoing maintenance and care of the columbaria and garden. J.

  • Mission Statement & Beliefs | Firstpres

    MISSION STATEMENT & BELIEFS Home / About / Mission Statement & Beliefs Mission Statement Our Mission Statement is "…to discover and live the way of God in the expansive Grace of God." ​ Our Beliefs We are a 'Confessional' church and proud members of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians and the Fellowship of Presbyterians. We have adopted 13 creeds and confessions of the church, including the Apostles' Creed, that we believe accurately state what the Scripture teaches. ​ Statement of Faith Under the authority of Jesus Christ and his word, we affirm: We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, author of all beauty, truth and goodness. We believe in Jesus Christ, His only son, who suffered and died on the cross, as an atoning sacrifice for sins, giving forgiveness and eternal life to all those who put their faith and trust in Him. We believe God raised Jesus from the dead and that His death and resurrection are the central events of history. We believe Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to God the Father but through Him. We believe in the third person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit, who baptizes, fills, instructs, counsels, comforts, convicts, purifies, exhorts, and strengthens all believers in accordance with God’s good will and purpose. We believe that Holy marriage is between a man and a woman, is ordained by God, and is the human echo of the divine relationship between Christ and His bride, the true Church. Basic Presbyterian Beliefs The Trinity: God is one and exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.Jesus Christ - God took human form in the person of Jesus Christ. He was fully God and fully human. Jesus Christ: God took human form in the person of Jesus Christ. He was fully God and fully human. Justification by Faith: A person by faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary death on the cross receives grace – the forgiveness of sin and the gift of eternal life. Scripture: The Bible is God’s written Word to humankind – the “infallible rule of faith and practice.” Sovereignty: Our Living Heavenly Father is ultimately in control of world events and individual lives. He works all things out in accordance with His will. Sacraments: We celebrate two sacraments: baptism and holy communion. ​ Worship: We as Christians strive to praise and please God and enjoy an intimate relationship with Him.
