And I will give them one heart and one way, so that they may go on in the worship of me for ever, for their good and the good of their children after them. Jeremiah 32:39
We welcome you and would consider it an honor and privilege if you would choose to worship with us at Piedmont Presbyterian Church. If we can be of service to you in any way, please contact us.
We are part of a small, friendly, rural community located in Mineral County, West Virginia. Most Sunday mornings you will find a traditional church service with a few contemporary additions. We welcome folks of all denominations to join us! Our church is a member of the Shenandoah Presbytery of the PCUSA. Our pastor is Tom Forbes.
• A monthly time of Prayer, Study, and Fellowship will be held the second Thursday evening each month, September through December, from 5:30 until 8:00 p.m. (November 12 and December 10). There will be a simple meal served, bible study, prayer and lots of discussion about real-world issues facing each of us today and how the Bible helps us deal with these issues. Hope to see you there!
Once again, EVERYONE is welcome!

Presbyterian Women are again sponsoring the “Lights of Love” Christmas tree. A light may be purchased in honor or memory of a loved one for $5.00 per light. This is a rewarding way to remember those who have gone before us and also help those in need in our area. The tree will be lit on Sunday, November 29th , before the Christmas Concert and a candle will be lit during the concert for those honored or remembered. A list of contributors will be available at the Christmas Concert. Please find a sign-up sheet elsewhere in the newsletter. Donations and your sign up sheet should be received by Sunday, November 24th. Thank you.

The online form for sharing thoughts on the identity and purpose of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as part of a church-wide conversation initiated by the Committee on the Office of the General Assembly will now be available until December 18. The extended period allows time for even more people throughout the denomination to weigh in.
“Please share your insights, wisdom, hopes, and dreams for the PC(USA),” said COGA Moderator Margaret Elliott. “Through careful listening and honest sharing we can create a church for this time and place.”
Talk individually or in groups using the questions from the online form at pcusa.org/identity and a discussion guide downloadable at pcusa.org/discussionguide. Each person is then invited to fill out the form themselves. Hear how to walk through using the guide on information calls:
Wednesday, November 4, 3–4 p.m. (EST)
Monday, November 9, 8–9 p.m. (EST)
Use call in (800) 231-0316, or (314) 696-0504 for international participants
Also join Larissa Kwong Abazia, Vice Moderator of the 221st General Assembly (2014), in the second of two Twitter chats on Thursday, November 12, 9–10 p.m. (EST). She’ll be @LarissaLKA using the hashtag #pcusaidentity.
The 222nd General Assembly (2016) will use much of the information gathered to collectively discern God’s call for the church. Contact email@example.com for questions or for more information.
