The Apostles' Creed: The Church’s First ‘Elevator Speech’
The concept of an ‘Elevator Speech’ - that few moments to get your ideas across – is useful when considering the Church’s first attempt to capture the essence of belief in a brief few words. We know that piece as the Apostles' Creed. On the Sundays of this New Year, up through Easter, Pastor Nick Van Gombos, will be sharing reflections on the 12 points of the Apostles' Creed: what they say, what they meant, why they are included, and how they speak to us today!

“Marriage and the PC(USA): a Study and Dialogue”
You may have heard that at last summer’s meeting of our denomination’s General Assembly, delegates voted to alter the constitutional directives (in our Book of Order) on who, where and why, Ordained Presbyterian Clergy could Officiate at weddings. In a word, the new guideline (if approved by a majority of members nationwide) will be that in jurisdictions where same gender marriages are legal, PC (USA) clergy ‘may at their prayerful discretion’ officiate. At this point, it is provisionally approved. The new proposed wording would also define marriage as between ‘two persons’ - gender not delineated. Join us for a study and conversation about the Biblical, Theological, Historical and Cultural implications and considerations which led to this change. Part of Being Christian Today!
