Church Announcements - October 24-31 2014

We seek to be a friendly, inclusive and welcoming church.  We hope your worship experience is fulfilling.  We would like to tell you more about our church.   Please contact the Church at 570-824-2478 to speak with Rev. Bob.

Listen to the Liebigschule School Choir on our Sermons page.  We were privileged to have this choir visit our worship service on Sunday, September 28, 2014.

SOUP EVENT:  Make sure to put this on your calendar!!!  “FPC’s First Annual Soup Event” scheduled for Sunday November 2, 2014.  Rev. Jim & Merry Maxwell, along with a lot of help, will be cooking up a batch, a very BIG batch, of chicken chowder in their 45 gallon cauldron.  Volunteers are needed to help chop vegetables etc. on Saturday afternoon, November 1, (3:30) here at the church. Pizza will be provided!   Help on Sunday morning with the cooking is also needed.  Our understanding is that Presbyterians are no longer sacrificed in these types of cauldrons! Volunteering guarantees your safety! We will enjoy the soup in the Fellowship Hall after worship. Left over soup can be purchased for $5.00 a quart.  Please contact the church if you can help.

Coalescence (n) - United into a whole.

Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Wilkes-Barre's website!  We are a congregation of children, women and men from many denominational, social and cultural backgrounds.  We gather together for spiritual comfort and challenge.

The Gospel of Christ is proclaimed in its multifaceted manifestations.  Living the Gospel, takes precedence over dogma.  Inclusion, acceptance and imagination are vital parts of our vision of God's kingdom.
