What if I told you there was a simple way for you to grow much closer to God and in the process be empowered to tell others more about the God you love and be encouraged to be more active in serving others in Christ’s name? Would you be willing to try? What if I told you that it would take less than 30 minutes a week? Would that make a difference? (click on 'read more' to read on)
During the Summer Pastor Lee will be doing a series of sermons looking at the 10 Commandments.
These commands are not the restrictive rules they are made out to be. Instead, they are God's provision for living a happy and abundand life. Come and learn to look at the 10 Commands from a new perspective.

WOW is back! Women of the Word returns in September with a nine-week study from Beth Moore called "Children of the Day."
Is family life a challenge? Is work is driving you crazy? Do you know God has a purpose for your life, but can't figure out what it is? Know that your circumstances are not coincidental. And God's timing is impeccable. Join Beth Moore on the Thessalonian shores as she walks you through the truth of each verse of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. In “Children of the Day,” you'll face crises, afflictions, relationships, doubts, concerns, and fears. Find encouragement for living the Christian life now and hope for when Christ returns.
Ladies, mark your calendars and make plans to join us Monday evenings, September 8-November 3, 6:30-8:30 PM, or Tuesday mornings, September 9-November 4, 9:15-11:15 AM. Questions? Contact Katherine Team. To make childcare reservations for the Tuesday morning session, please contact Meredith Trout (336-248-2140, ext. 203).
Well, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) did it again and made a number of very controversial decisions at its latest meeting in Detroit. Before I explain what those decisions are, let me remind you of the structure of the PCUSA.
There are roughly 10,000 PCUSA congregations in the United States. These are geographically divided into 172 presbyteries. We are part of the Salem Presbytery located in Clemmons, NC. These presbyteries are geographically grouped into 16 synods.
Salem Presbytery has 4 meetings each year. Each church elects an elder (or more depending on church size) to be a commissioner to these meetings. All pastors are automatically members of presbytery. The pastors along with the elected elders make up the decision making body of the presbytery.
Every two years, each presbytery elects an equal number of elders and pastors from the presbytery to be commissioners to the General Assembly of the PCUSA. It is at this assembly that policy and decisions are made that “represent” the whole of the church.
The two major controversial decisions deal with the cultural shift toward the acceptance of “same sex marriage.” (click on 'read more' to read on).
The Presbyterian Table meets Thursday nights at 6:00 PM, reserving a table at a different restaurant each week. Anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table." This is an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense. We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.
I am excited to announce a new way that First Presbyterian Church can help you develop as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We have partnered with RightNow Media to make available to you a large library of free video resources. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. You can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector. There are over 2000 videos from some great teachers including Max Lucado, Francis Chan, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, and more.
FaithHealth NC, a program through Wake Forest Baptist Health, is dynamic partnership between faith communities and health care providers. The mission and purpose of Faith/Health is to develop strong links between medical and faith communities in providing ministries of help and healing to individuals. In Lexington that partnership is between our own Lexington Medical Center and various churches. Our congregation, in fact, has covenanted to be a part of the FaithHealth program.
Several years ago, a number of people from our church took a Saturday to drive over to Madison, NC to observe the men of First Methodist Church cooking peanuts. We had tasted their peanuts and were interested in how they cooked them. Following that trip we searched for a cooker we could use to cook peanuts ourselves, but couldn't find one. We now have contracted with the Madison church to sell us peanuts wholesale.
NUTS ON A MISSION is a unique, delicious gift for your neighbor, a relative, or just for yourself! Contact the church office or Emmy Floyd to purchase. Each pint jar costs just $6.00, or pick up two jars for $10. A case of 12 jars costs $60. All proceeds will go toward missions.
