Lectionary Readings for the Coming Week
Welcome to The First Presbyterian Church in Springfield!
We are a welcoming congregation that seeks to cultivate disciples of Jesus Christ in a community of learning, healing and sharing. Located in the heart of Flourtown, at the intersection of Bethlehem Pike and East Mill Road, we are rich in history and we are boldly forging our future for which we know God is preparing us. Our congregation believes in the importance of family; commitment to our neighborhood and world through mission; and nurturing spiritual values through our ministries of worship, education, and fellowship.

Children's Sunday, December 2nd (1st Sunday in Advent): Join us for our special Children's Sunday worship service at 10 am. As we begin Advent, the time when we anticipate Christ’s arrival as an infant, we will be taking time to reflect on childhood spirituality. We will be setting up a “pray ground” in the front of the sanctuary, using child friendly liturgical pieces and we will be inviting Dawn Stewart, an expert on childhood spirituality and Godly Play facilitator, to guide us in supporting the faith of the children in our life. This will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and engage our young worshippers, and a perfect time to bring the family and grandkids to worship as we collectively prepare for the coming of the Christ child.
Christmas Cantata - Sunday, December 16 @ 10:00 am: Join us for a special musical worship service, featuring the Christmas Cantata "What Sweeter Music" arranged and composed by John Leavitt. Performed by the Flourtown Presbyterian Chancel Choir and Chamber Orchestra. Following the service there will be a Fellowship Brunch in Taylor Hall, all are welcome!

Plastic Grocery Bags Wanted: Here is your chance to get rid of all those pesky plastic grocery bags! Whosoever Gospel Mission has a constant need for bags for their thrift store. We will now be collecting bags as part of our Sharing Cupboard - please leave your donated bags on the bottom shelves of the cupboard (and don't forget to bring a few cans in with them as well!)
Don't forget the Sharing Cupboard! Canned and packaged food items are desperately needed each week, especially during the summer months.
