Welcome to our Worship at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings at the corner of 20th and Raton. God's House, our children's Sunday School, meets after the children's message in Worship.

5 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres

1 Youth Missions Sunday

Our high school youth will share, this Sunday, all about their summer mission trip to St. Louis. We hope you’ll make it a priority to come support our youth.

2 A little Beth

Lots of women have appreciated Beth Moore’s teachings over the years. She doesn’t come to Colorado too often, so this September 28 is our chance to experience her teaching from right here in La Junta with Living Proof’s Beth Moore Simulcast. Check out our Facebook event page for more info.

3 Our sympathy and prayers

Our former pastor, the Rev. William (Bill) Spearman, passed away. His daughter Sarah Clegren, writes, “ Finally reunited and together for eternity...my Dad, Rev. Dr. William Spearman, crossed over into Heaven and into the arms of my mom and the Lord today. It had been a very long summer for him and we were blessed to have him here at home with us. So grateful for his amazing life and love and so thankful that he is now with my mom again.” Bill was our pastor from 1972-77, and he is fondly remembered by all.

4 Spiritual growth opportunities for adults

We’ve got lots of new opportunities for adults to engage their faith. See the Pathways display on the table in the Church Foyer to discover more about Foundations (a Bible survey experience), GPiP (a weekly prayer meeting), the return of the Men’s Group, plus the return of Tables in October.

Welcome to our Worship at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings at the corner of 20th and Raton. God's House, our children's Sunday School, meets after the children's message in Worship. We conclude the Lord's Prayer Series and wrap up our #trypraying challenge. Please join us and just try praying!

5 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres

1 #trypraying challenge

We’re so excited that 22 people signed on to do the #trypraying challenge. How’s it going? We’ll celebrate the end of the #trypraying challenge in worship on Sunday as our worship series concludes. Kristin Bickel will sing.

2 Blessing of the backpacks

Also in worship, we’ll “Bless the Backpacks,” so teachers, students, and anybody else with a backpack in need of blessing is welcome to bring them and covet our prayers. We’ll also hear more about the fun new partnerships we’re forging with the LJ Primary and Intermediate schools.

3 Meet Me in St. Louie

Next Sunday, August 25, a group of our youth will share about their experiences in mission to St. Louis this past July. Please don’t miss this chance to support our youth in this faith-building experience.

4 Confirmation meeting

Parents and youth in 7th or 8th grade--along with any older youth who may have missed an earlier opportunity--are invited to stay after worship for a few minutes in the sanctuary to hear about our Confirmation Program for 2019-2020. Confirmation is a program of Christian discipleship for junior high and high school youth, leading to an invitation to profess their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and join the congregation. Youth who have not been previously baptized will be invited to do so as part of this process.
