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 February 11, 2024

We are into it now! Well, just 4 days into Lent by the time we get to this Sunday, February 18. It’s 40 days plus Sundays from Day 1 of Lent, February 14 to Easter, March 31 this year. Wander with us through the ups and downs of Peter, one of Jesus’ most famous and infamous disciples. Sanctified Art’s “Wandering Heart: Figuring our Faith with Peter” series will focus our worship through to Easter and beyond. As I described Peter in my sermon last week, “Shoot from the hip, fly off the handle, jump out of the boat, Mr. No-Filter, Peter.” This week’s story takes us back to the beginning, when Jesus first freaks Peter out with fishing advice that worked after being up all night and totally empty handed. The title is “Jesus sought me.” No matter how fast or far you may wander or run. Join us at 9:30 am on Sunday in person or by Livestream on our Youtube channel or Facebook.
Throughout Lent we are remembering the 8,000 and counting children who have died in and around Gaza since October 7, with Olive Wood Hearts representing each child, carved by Bethlehem area artisans. These hearts are a call to prayer and a call to action.
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.
