Mission Statement: In gratitude to God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to discern what God is calling us to do as we serve Christ in our daily and corporate lives through worship and spiritual formation, education and discipleship, hospitality and fellowship, and mission. Putting our faith into action, we seek to create a loving community that God challenges, renews, equips, and sends out into the world to love others, to care for the sick and needy, to demonstrate kindness and mercy, and to work for justice and peace.

Vacation Bible School
First Presbyterian Church, Ponca City, OK
ADULT EDUCATION This Monday (7:00 PM):
THE GOSPEL OF JOHN – Mark Southard continues a reading and study of the Fourth Gospel. The class meets on the lower level in Room B-9 (the "Old Quilters' Room").
ADULT EDUCATION This Thursday (2:30 PM, repeated at 7:00 PM):
THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH FROM CONSTANTINE TO GREGORY - "The Christological Controversy". The official doctrinal inclusion of the Son within the Godhead at the Constantinopolitan council of 381 prompted speculation about the relationship between the divine and human within Christ. A near century-long battle involved fine distinctions of terminology seem arcane to modern Christians but have profound theological consequences. The class continues in Room B-9 ("Old Quilters' Room") on the lower level.
ADULT EDUCATION Sunday (8:45 AM):
FAITHWEAVER STUDY FOR ADULTS – The Bible study, related to the lectionary readings and paralleling the scriptural basis of the children's classes for the same day, meets on the lower level in the Multi-Purpose Room. Steve Ernst leads the study.
CURRENT EVENTS – Jolene Ebbert leads the discussion of current events and the way in which our always-changing world affects us as Christians, in the Parlor.
PATHWAYS OF PRAISE: AN EXPLORATION OF THE BOOK OF COMMON WORSHIP - "New But Not Novel" and "What All's Here". The Presbyterian Church's 1993 publication of the Book of Common Worship, while ground-breaking in its scope, was not unprecedented in vision. In this session, we will quickly review the genealogy of the book and look at a couple of contemporary parallels in other Presbyterian denominations, and we'll also get an overview of the book's structure and contents. Dr. Taylor leads the class, which meets in Room B-9 ("Old Quilters' Room") on the lower level.Sunday (8:45 AM).
