SPECIAL 9:40AM HOUR PRESENTATIONS IN JANUARY
West Side Presbyterian A PC(USA) church in the Fellowship of Presbyterians
Why are these relationships important and what it will mean for us as we move ahead as a church?
As an evangelical congregation located in West Seattle, we strive to stay focused on our mission: making disciples of Jesus Christ. We seek to love our city and to be servants and missionaries right here in our community. We are also part of a denomination (the PC(USA)) and members of an evangelical movement of churches (the Fellowship of Presbyterians (FOP)). PC(USA) helps us drive mission locally through a network of Presbyterian churches; the FOP provides focus and accountability to our growth.
This January we are taking three Sundays to engage in open discussions about what it means to be a part of both organizations and how our engagement helps West Side pursue our mission.
January 4 –Scott Lumsden, the Executive Presbyter of the Seattle Presbytery, shared his vision for the Seattle Presbytery and its relationship with West Side. Class MP3
Today – Luke Crook, our Associate Pastor, will share insights on what West Side’s participation in the Fellowship of Presbyterians will mean for us this coming year and years to come.
January 18 – Scott Mann, an Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Bellevue and current Moderator of the Seattle Presbytery, will be with us. He has been the most significant leader and voice in the Seattle Presbytery for the Fellowship of Presbyterians and for the cause of evangelicals in our denomination. He will share his vision for the evangelical movement within the PC(USA) and what the implications for that could be for churches like West Side.
