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.

"The Parables Beside Us": During lent we will be examining the parables of Jesus in Matthew. A parable is a story cast aside another to bring us to a better understanding of our world, ourselves and our God. Join us for Sunday worship 10:00 am.
Art in Worship for Lent - Bad News/Resurrection Cross: Every Sunday in Lent, please bring in bad news you have cut from the newspaper (or printed from online site) to nail to our wooden cross. Each week our visual art will evolve and progress until the Resurrection cross is revealed on Easter Sunday.
Adult Education program for March - The Parables in Art. We will explore how the parables have been depicted in visual art through the ages. Join us on Sunday mornings 11:15 in Room 101 for a wonderful and fascinating look at a myriad of styles from Renaissance through today's memes.
Bridesmaid Dress Show-off - Sunday, 3/31 during Coffee Hour: To augment our exploration of the Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids, we will display your bridesmaid dresses - either the actual dress or photos of you in the dress. Which dresses make you cringe, which do you love, which styles are ready for a comeback? Come show off the dresses you wore to celebrate the special weddings in your life!
