Reconciliation, Racial Equity, and Healing

Today we welcomed new friends from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, to learn more about our shared history surrounding Reverend Benjamin M. Palmer, to think about racial equity, healing, and reconciliation. It was an especially meaningful beginning of Advent, with a sermon given jointly by our own Rev. Dr. Kim Rodrigue and Dr. Noelle Chaddock from Rhodes College.

A First Presbyterian Christmas

Did you know that we recorded a Christmas CD in 2003?

A First Presbyterian Christmas: Music of the Christmas and Advent Seasons, recorded and produced by the members of FPCNO.  Includes live recordings from the sanctuary and also some songs produced in the studio, including piano, guitar, handbells, choir and children's choir and readings.

"Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your God." Martin Luther

Today, October 31, 2017, marks the 500 year anniversary of the date that, according to legend, a monk named Martin Luther defiantly nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church and, in the process, gave birth to the Reformation and Protestantism. We celebrated Reformation Sunday in worship this past week, and today we are sharing some interesting quotes, articles and thoughts.
