This Week

Living the heart and mind of Christ at the heart of the city
An intentionally diverse worshiping faith community

We mourn for loved ones lost to COVID-19 and to systemic injustices that continue to permeate our society. We recognize the truth of Imago Dei that all people are created in the beloved image of God, Therefore, we are called to work together in solidarity with others to create the just society God envisions for all of creation.

Sunday, July 12, 2020 – Facebook Live at 10:00 A.M.

This coming Sunday we will conclude our six-week series on on Cultivating a Life of Contemplation and Compassion.   As Wendy Farley writes, “The difficulty and the crisis of the world is overwhelming. It is virtually impossible to bear it without very deep resources.”  Pastor Cheryl Raine will be preaching and her message is entitled, “Seeds of Compassion” based on Luke 4:16-21 and Isaiah 52:7-10.  Our Facebook Page is First Presbyterian Church of Redlands.
