Join Us For A Journey Through The Story!

The Story is a book of selections from The Bible, arranged chronologically, that reads like a novel.

Our community of faith is reading this wonderful version of God’s Word where there are no traditional chapter names (Genesis through Revelation are replaced by Creation through The End of Time). The are no chapter or verse numbers. The Story reads like a novel.

During this unique 31-week experience, every member of the family hears or reads their own version of The Story. Adults are encouraged to read a chapter at home, every week.  We break into individual classes based on age (several adult classes plus a middle/high class, 2 elementary classes and a preschool class) on Sunday mornings at 9:45 to take age-appropriate looks at The Story.  We would love to share this journey with you and your family. You are invited to join the Providence Presbyterian community as we explore God’s Word by together reading The Story and discover how our story is found in His story!

CLICK HERE for Parent Pages, 31 weeks of ideas for the whole family, divided into ideas for teens, elementary, and preschool, designed to enhance the lessons learned in The Story.

 



Youth Activities
 
Youth Fellowship - Providence middle/high students will gather at the church on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays, 6:00 - 7:00pm, for food, fun, fellowship and study. Dinner will be served at YF. Weekly study is based on The Story.

Mission Matters - Providence middle/high students are invited to join Pastor Billy on the 1st Sunday of each month, 12:45 - 1:45pm, as this group discusses opportunities to answer Christ’s call to make a difference in the world.  This group meets at the church each month to discuss a variety of topics (caring for the sick; seeking justice; honoring the poor; loving the forsaken; etc.) and then, once a quarter, go out into the world to make a difference. Lunch will be served at gatherings. Young people are encouraged to bring along an adult partner.
 
Enrichment Activities
 
Following the "Time for Young Children" during worship, children (grades K through 2nd) are welcomed to enjoy lessons specifically geared toward their understanding and attention level.  Making crafts along with the lessons allow for an additional dimension of learning God's word and their worth as His special creation.
 
Nursery

How Do I Join Providence?
 
After worship you may speak to the Pastor about officially joining the church.  It's a painless process!  It begins at 6:00 pm in the Pastor's study on a night that the Session meets, and ends around 7:30 pm after meeting with the Session and being welcomed into the church.  In the hour that you spend with the Pastor, you'll have an opportunity to get acquainted with him, and he with you; fill out a few forms; review what meeting the Session will be like; and better understand what you can expect from your new church home.  If you miss catching up with the Pastor following worship, feel free to give him a call during the week, or email him at your convenience.
