We are linked to each other by stories. Our own sacred narratives, together with the great Biblical stories, are woven into the fabric of our faith. At First Presbyterian Church of Springfield, we believe in the big umbrella of grace and we welcome all who wish to join us.

Annual Church Partnership Picnic
Sunday, June 9 |immediately after church
—Meet at Jim Edgar State Park
Canoes, fishing, food and fun — this picnic is one of our annual worship, fun and fellowship partnership events with our sister church, New Mission Church of God. This is also an opportunity to enjoy the sights outside of the city.
Volunteers are preparing delicious barbecue, and there will also be hot dogs. Please bring a covered side dish, salad or dessert to share. Beverages will be provided.
We could use your help. Four people are needed at the church by 9:00 a.m. to transport food and beverage items and set up the tables at the park. Two or three people are needed to clean up following the meal and transport items back to the church. Please call the Admin Assistant in the church office (217.528.4311, ext 204) to sign up for one of these tasks. A map to the reserved park shelter is on the church narthex (front entry) table. As always, your efforts are very much appreciated.
Adopt a Shut-in
We invite you to adopt a shut-in to visit and get to know — telephoning, chatting or stopping by for a visit. Please contact Jennifer Erbes for more information about this year-round program. Think of all of the joy you will bring to your life and the life of a homebound member!
