10:00 A.M. – Morning Worship (English)

5:00 P.M. – Evening Worship (Indonesian)

November is often a month when we pause and reflect on all the gifts on God’s goodness in our lives. Our National Holiday of Thanksgiving fuels our inspiration to pause and give thanks. With the psalmist we concur that we must, “Give thanks to the God and tell of God’s marvelous deeds!” This Sunday Pastor Cheryl will preaching from Acts 5:1-11 and Deuteronomy 15:7-11, while asking the question, “What’s Your Motive?”  Why do we give? Why to we withhold or hoard what has been so generously given to us? Come and explore with us the truth we all we have belongs to God alone.

Pastor Hart Tan will be preaching for the 5:00 P.M. service on this last phrase as well. Fellowship will follow each service of worship in John Knox Hall. Come and worship our amazing God!

We walked in the Believe Walk on October 6, 2019, and raised just over $2,000! Thank you TEAM PRESBYTERIAN, all our walkers and donors for giving back to our community!
