As we celebrate the unity given to us by God and get to know each other, the Piedmont Presbyterian and Promised Land congregations will be having a joint communion service at 11am on Sunday, September 3rd.  For August 27th and September 10th, 17th, and 24th, our Sunday schedule will be as follows:

10am Piedmont worship service (All are welcome!)
11am Fellowship time together
11:30am Promised Land worship service
(All are welcome!)

 

Play Park is closed for Labor Day, and open Monday and Wednesday, 9am-12pm until Sept. 18th when we will resume our school year schedule.

Please join Promised Land Community Church and Piedmont Presbyterian Church as we worship and celebrate communion together at 11am, Sunday, July 2nd. Pastor Maury Sails will be preaching on John 4:7-39. The order of worship for the service is here: Joint Communion Service Jul 2017

Jesus says: “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”

The recent acts of violence, threats and intimidation in our community are abhorrent.  We can point fingers at the perpetrators, but as a community we had a hand in raising them and a hand in shaping the world of inequality around us. What are we going to do to for a different future for our children and grandchildren? Jesus calls us to a love that includes repentance, reconciliation and sacrifice. As he laid down his life for us, we are to lay down our lives for others. If we love only the people within our circle or who share a common culture or characteristics, we fall short of the goodness God has created us for. The only way out is love: deep, abiding, unafraid, patient and enduring love. A love that sees others unlike ourselves and seeks understanding, connection and mutual goals. Love that calls us to account for the apathy, prejudice, fear and self-interest that has laid the groundwork for the terror that is breaking out everywhere around us. Love is willing to work to reshape our priorities, laws and choices to bring justice and peace to all the inhabitants of our city. True love will not rest until all of God’s children in our community share the same sense of security, belonging and opportunity that currently only a portion of us enjoy.

The Plan Just Got Bigger!

 Join us for worship on Ascension Sunday, May 28th with Pastor Greg Ikehara-Martin at 10:30am. He will be preaching on Luke 24:44-53 and Acts 1:1-11, “The Plan Just God Bigger.”  Jesus is sending upon us what our Father promises: You will be clothed with power from on high. (Luke 24:49)


Play Park will be closed on Memorial Day,
Monday, May 9th.

Summer hours will begin June 19th, and will be two days each week: Monday & Wednesday 9am-12pm. Before the 19th, we will continue to be open Monday-Thursday.

Giving ThanksWhen the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
‘The Lord has done great things for them.’
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we rejoiced. (Psalm 126:1-)

One of the great things God has done for us at Piedmont Presbyterian is introduce us to the Promised Land Church led by Pastor Maury Sails and First Lady Althea Sails. We have been truly blessed as they have shared Bible study and fellowship with our congregation. We give thanks to the Lord for their faithful ministry in our community.
