Welcome

   FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

JANESVILLE, WISCONSIN

God calls us to strengthen our faith

while we share with others

the transforming love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

as guided by the Holy Spirit.

Reformed and Reforming

A hallmark of the Presbyterian denomination and the Reformed tradition is that God faithfully and continually works to form and shape us in the image of Christ. The motto, "The Church Reformed and Reforming according to the Word of God." As we study God's Holy Word, we discover and rediscover God's message of love, hope, and transformation. While God remains the same; yesterday, today, and forever, we constantly change. We always hope that we reflect more of Christ in our life to our community. 
 
We join with Christians everywhere on World Communion Sunday, October 2nd. We remember our Christian sisters and brothers in other parts of the world. We will focus on Japan and Rev. Tom Goetz our PCUSA missionary we met this summer. 
 
The Rev. Dr. Craig Howard, the Executive Director of Stategic Planning for the Presbytery of Milwaukee will lead worship on October 23rd. 
 
We will celebrate our Scottish heritage with the Kirkin' O'Tartan service on Reformation Sunday, October 30th. This also will be my last Sunday as pastor. God will continue to reform First Presbyterian Church as worship, ministry, and mission will continue as the congregation seek to call new pastoral leadership.  The Lord has blessed me these past seventeen and a half years as the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Janesville. God will remain faithful forever. 
 
We hope even in this time of transition you will seek to allow the Lord to reform your heart as a disciple of Christ. 
 
Grace and Peace, 
 
 
Bruce
