FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
where all are welcomed and embraced in the inclusive Love of God
First Presbyterian Church, Marshfield, Wisconsin seeks to welcome all to join us on our journey of faith, denying no one, based upon his or her particular human condition, participation in the life of the church. We want to be a safe place, a sanctuary where people are accepted, included, and cared for as they are. We will be agents of God’s transforming power, aligning ourselves with the Holy Spirit as we pray, worship, learn, share fellowship and serve together. By attending to the love of Jesus Christ in our midst, we discover a deepening faith that makes a difference in our lives. As a community based on God’s love, we strive to be of service to our neighbors and to the world.

Sermon for November 26, 2023
click to view
Advent begins this Sunday, Dec. 3! You may be thinking, “Well it’s about time. It’s been Christmas everywhere else since before Halloween.” Or your heart may feel extra burden and expectations, “Oh no, here we go.” Rather than hope-filled anticipation. This Sunday we will light the Candle of Hope and launch a series titled,”How Does a Weary World Rejoice?” created by our friends at Sanctified Art. We will begin on Sunday acknowledging our weariness, grief, rage and hopelessness–and we will affirm that we are made for joy. Our first story in Luke 1 will be the one about Zechariah and Elizabeth and the weight they feel of hopes and dreams unattained. You, too, may be asking, “How Long?” and plead for restoration like the Psalmist in Psalm 80. If so, we hope you will take this Sunday as an opportunity for a fresh start. There’s more than enough hope here for all of us and our weary, broken world.
Join us in song, word and sacrament as we share Holy Communion from our open table. We would love to see you there – or have you join us on screen.

Last year when we installed our yarn wraps to show the LGBTQIA community that we support and affirm them, we hoped to start a movement. Well, the movement continues.
