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.

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. Your contributions are much appreciated and always delivered to Germantown Ave. Crisis Ministry on Tuesdays. The community is welcome to drop off food donations on Sunday mornings between 9 am and noon, and most Monday-Thursday evenings from 7:30 - 8:30.
