Welcome

Welcome and Holiday Greetings!

A special time of the year is upon us.

Thanksgiving, as a holiday and as a time to be thankful, is here! We at First Presbyterian Church are thankful for both the new beginning and our history as we welcome our new pastor, Rev. Dr. Laurie Brubaker Davis.

And just around the corner, beneath our thankful hearts brews the anticipation of the Advent season. This is the season of preparation and holy wonder at the coming of Christ: when “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” (John 1:14, The Message Bible).

How do we prepare the way this year? How do we make room in our hearts in this holy season?

Here at FPC we look forward to special events each Sunday, to help us connect with Divine Love made visible in Jesus.  Note what you can look forward to —but make certain to bring your children Dec. 3rd for a special gift that will help them anticipate and celebrate the whole season!

EarthCareSealOur Mission Statement

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.

Scriptures that Shape Our Ministry:

Matthew 25:31-46 – “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are my members of my family, you did it to me.”

Mark 12:28-31  “One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, ‘Which commandment is the first of all?’  Jesus answered, ‘the first is, “Hear, O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.”’  The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no other commandment greater than these.”
