Worship - March 11, 2018 -Sermon :“Life Upon Life Upon Life” Delivered by Dee Boling; Written by Rev. Kim Rodrigue

This Sunday, March 11th, after our morning church service, a group from FPCNO will be attending the matinee showing of “Black Panther” at the Broad Street Theater, located at 636 N. Broad St.

The movie starts at 1:20 pm, so we will leave the church at 12:50 pm, and carpool together to the theater. The cost of admission to the theater is $8.00 per person. The movie is rated PG-13.

After the movie, we will reconvene back at the church for an informal discussion, with particular focus on the various issues of social justice that the film raises – both onscreen and off screen. We envision this event as supplementing and advancing FPCNO’s ongoing church-wide discussion of racism and racial justice.

Free refreshments will be served at the post-movie discussion. All who are interested are welcome to join us.

Holy Week at First Presbyterian Church

Heart Labyrinth - All Week

Church yard, corner of S. Claiborne and Octavia St.

The labyrinth will invite you to take a meditative journey into the heart of God during this week in which God’s heart was laid bare for us all. If you are someone who finds your mind wandering when you try to pray, this labyrinth may help you experience prayer in a new way. It will be constructed in the side yard (pumpkin patch) for the whole week. Come as you are able.

Worship in the Sanctuary We will begin our worship with the waving of palms and the hosannas of the children’s choir, then will move into a dramatic reading of the Passion narrative from Mark’s Gospel.
