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.
We want to invite you to our Ash Wednesday Service on 2-10-16 starting at 6 P.M. Choir Practice will start at 5:15 P.M. All are welcome!
Join the Blue Out!
Wear your blue on February 14
We are approaching the season of Lent and the promotion period for the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering. The season of Lent is a time for repentance, service, reflection, and prayer as we consider how Christ gave himself to others.
The first Sunday in Lent (February 14, 2016) has been designated “Wear your blue t-shirt to church Sunday” as a testament of one of the ways One Great Hour of Sharing makes a difference. POSTER AND BULLETIN INSERTS AVAILABLE at http://pda.pcusa.org/situation/blue-tshirts/
We want to encourage you to acknowledge the first Sunday in the season by reflecting on your service to families recovering from the agony of disaster. Although the liturgical color for the season is purple, wearing blue on the first Sunday can be a symbol of hope for the recovery and restoration of life that we know will come for survivors. Would you participate in the sign of hope that the blue represents? Help raise awareness by wearing blue clothing, hats, flowers, balloons, and so forth. And spread the word! Share this message on your personal Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media outlets.
As you prepare to take the One Great Hour of Sharing offering, remember that your gifts witness to the healing love of Christ and bring hope out of the chaos of disaster, supporting disaster recovery efforts in the United States and around the world.
Please take a photo of your Blue Out creativity! Send it to email@example.com so we can share with others.
Together let’s tell the story of hope out of chaos.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Such a beautiful definition of love. As we all enjoy our Valentine's Day Festivities and celebrate the speical day with the loves of our life, lets take some time to reflect on the topic and give thanks!
WHEN IS ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING (OGHS)?
Most congregations receive "OGHS" on Easter Sunday, Passion/Palm Sunday or both, while many receive it throughout Lent—however, you can help sustain the important PC(USA) ministries and programs that are supported by One Great Hour of Sharing Offering by making an online gift at any time throughout the year.
HOW IS MY GIFT USED?
A gift to One Great Hour of Sharing enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and helping to empower the poor and oppressed.
