PIG PICKIN’   Due to the governor’s mandate on gatherings and the county’s current COVID situation, the church has decided (regretfully) to postpone the Pig Pickin’.

THE PRESBYTERY is sponsoring a special viewing of the documentary The Long Shadow, which takes a hard look at the history of slavery (America's original sin) from the founding of the nation to the present, and its insidious ties to racism today.  On August 9, at 5:00pm there will be a special zoom discussion, including the director of the film, Frances Causey, of the documentary.  The film will be available August 5-12.  If you wish to join, please contact Leslee Kirkconnell for the information.

Last Sunday:  Where Compassion and 'Enough' Meet  by guest Rev. Mike Chamberlain

  • Book Discussion Group - coming in August

    Join Leslee Kirkconnell beginning Monday August 10, 7:00pm for a Book Discussion Group.  As a Matthew 25 congregation, we will work on dismantling structural racism.  But first, we have to understand White privilege and how it functions to hold ALL of us back, but in particular our brothers and sisters of color.  Purchase the book from your favorite bookseller and email Leslee Kirkconnell for the Zoom link.  Hard conversations, but necessary.  ONE

    MORE BOOK IS AVAILABLE FROM LESLEE FOR $10.  *Part of Matthew 25*

  • Watch and Join the Discussion

    In our continuing exploration of structural racism, we will be discussing the documentary, 13th, on Netflix and YouTube (watch at your convenience).  This is an exploration of how our criminal justice system is not always just, resulting in a high rate of incarceration, particularly for persons of color.  We will gather on Tuesday August 25 at 7:00 via Zoom to discuss.  *Part of Matthew 25*  Email Leslee for the zoom link.

  • POSTPONED - DATE TO BE DETERMINED

    Watch for a new date, sometime this fall.  Weather should be cooler. 

  • City of God Video Discussion

    Meets Wednesdays, via zoom.  Dr. Glenn Kirkconnell will be leading the discussion on the Great Courses videos. We are showing the video via Zoom at 6:30pm or free streaming of the video is available through the Warren County Library.  Each week the group will discuss the video (discussion starts at 7:00pm) and how important St. Augustine is to Christianity.  Questions?  Email Leslee or Glenn. Please email Leslee your interest so the link can be sent. 

  • Round Table Pulpit Bible Study

    Is now on-line!  We will meet via Zoom on Mondays at 5:00pm.  Email to get the information.   Come join the conversation on the upcoming preaching scriptures. 

  • Read Through the Bible

    We are reading through the Bible together-join us!  Why?  Reading through the Bible is important - you have a clearer understanding of the history of God's people, the love God has for us and you improve your Bible knowledge.  We have brochures with readings available in the office, or you may go to the BibleTogether website to sign up for email reminders.  There is also an app you can download. It has the  readings (or listening - it will read you the passages if you like) questions, maps, videos and more!  Questions?  See Matthew Covington.
