Test the Waters!

This Saturday, December 5th we are hosting another of our popular "Test the Waters" programs. If you have been following First Pres on the interwebs or have attended a couple of times and are curious about us, this is the event for you! You will find the details below and in the December issue of our newsletter, The White Spire:


We invite you to come and “test the waters.” If you have either visited or have been attending regularly for awhile, or if this is your first time here, we invite you to find out more about us!

Come learn more about our congregation, tour our facilities, become acquainted with our ministries, meet a few of our fine folks, and enjoy lunch together -- and see if this congregation is a match for you as you search for a church home.

Our facilities include a newly remodeled fellowship hall, an adult education room, a nursery with separate rooms for infants and toddlers, two wheel-chair accessible restrooms, a renovated choir suite, and a beautiful, wheel-chair accessible labyrinth.

I have been the minister here for more than four years and am thrilled with how we have grown -- and keep growing! We look forward to starting some new ministries with children and families.

These are exciting times for First Presbyterian. I hope that you will be a part of them.

Many regard our congregation as an oasis. We are an inclusive, tolerant congregation that celebrates diversity and encourages openminded reflection. If you haven’t already found us on the web, please check our web site: www.fpcelizabethton.org. There you will find our philosophy, activities calendar, sermons, newsletter and all kinds of fun things.

Please mark Saturday, Dec. 5th, from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm on your calendar for you, your partner, your family, and even invite friends. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we can make preparations for lunch.

Contact the church office if you have questions at 543.7737, or e-mail the pastor at johnashuck [at] embarqmail [dot] com.
