Welcome to the Season of Advent


Welcome to the Season of Advent, when the light of Christ can bring hope to the world.

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Sunday, November 18 Worship Schedule Change

This Sunday, November 18, we will offer only two Eucharists: at 8:00 a.m., and 10:30 a.m. The Rite Place service will not be held since we will have the all parish brunch in that time slot. Please plan to attend the 8:00 or 10:30 service instead.
On Sunday, November 25, we will resume our regular worship schedule, with all three services meeting in the main church.

November 4 is All Saints Sunday

Collect for All Saints Sunday
Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord: Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Faith and the Environment Special Event

Do people of faith have a moral responsibility to take care of the environment? If so, what actions should be taken right now?
On Sunday, November 4, at 3:00pm, a forum will focus on the topic of eco-theology, or the relationship between religion and environmental concerns. Westminster College Professor Cliff Cain, who holds doctorates in both theology and environmental science, will focus on what sacred texts from different religions teach about caring for the environment.
Also during the program, individuals from different faith communities in Mid-Missouri will talk about what environmental responsibility means to their faith. Additionally, the program will focus on important things that a person of faith can do right now to care for the environment.
Sunday, November 4, 3:00 – 4:30 pm, First Presbyterian Church, Ramsey Center, 16 Hitt Street, Columbia, MO
