Hello Church!


Hello Church!

I am so pleased to be able to write you this first newsletter article in anticipation of joining you as your pastor on February 1st. Thank you for extending to me your trust and inviting me to join in the next chapter of life, love, service, witness and worship here at The Presbyterian Church in Geneva. Looking forward, I want to both share with you some information and offer you an invitation.

The invitation is this: please help me get to know you. Due to the ongoing restrictions required by the Covid-19 pandemic many of the “normal” ways we would have to encounter one another are not possible right now. So, we have a chance to be creative and find ways to connect in new ways. I will be reaching out and working with the Session, Deacons, and staff to find forums and possibilities. And I will need your help. Please reach out with your ideas, invitations, stories and hopes. I will do my best to honor them. Thank you for your patience and generosity as we continue to navigate the stormy seas.

The information is this: this month we will begin the journey of Lent. It is so good to know we are walking together in celebration of our eternal and abiding hope. We will begin by offering a virtual Ash Wednesday service on February 17th (details coming soon). This will be followed by a Lent worship series on “Practicing Faith”. In advance of Palm Sunday and Easter we will focus on the gifts of prayer, learning the biblical story, sharing joy, generosity, and acts of service.

There is much more to say and share, but for now I pray this will suffice. Thank you. Bless you. It is good to be with you.

Pastor Colin

Sermon on the Mount: A Beginners Guide to the Kingdom of Heaven

Sermon on the Mount Graphic
Sermon on the Mount: A Beginners Guide to the Kingdom of Heaven by Amy-Jill Levine will be the focus of the next series in Adult Forum.

“Amy-Jill Levine’s book is an essential guide to Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount. Levine invites us to hear the Jewishness of Jesus’s words, understand them in light of the world to which he spoke them, that we might better understand how these words speak to us today. This is a terrific book!” Adam Hamilton
