A statement from the Session of Falls Church Presbyterian

We are grateful to worship God in a nation that explicitly protects our freedom to do so. We affirm the freedom of others to practice as they so choose, whether they profess different creeds, a different faith, or no faith at all. We know we are living in a troubled world—we are angered by injustice, we are grief-stricken by senseless violence, we are heartbroken by cruelty. But we renounce attempts to use our anger and grief and heartbreak to stoke fear. We reject messages that tell us to be afraid of outsiders. We condemn the persecution of and discrimination against believers and non-believers around the world, regardless of whether such actions target and victimize Christians, Muslims, atheists, or those of other faiths. We further condemn the encouragement of and incitement to such persecution and discrimination whether initiated by politicians, the clergy of any faith, or violent sects claiming the mantle of religious authority.

We remember that God says “Fear not, for I am with you,” (Isaiah 41:10)
We remember that our God has given us a spirit of power and of love, not a spirit of fear
(2 Timothy 1:7)

We remember that God’s perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18)
We will, with God’s help, work to do as God commands, practicing forgiveness, standing up for those who are persecuted, and welcoming one another, as Christ has welcomed us, for the glory of God (Romans 15:7)

King David Bible Study

king david

Begins Feb. 17, 18
Next to Moses, no one in the Old Testament looms larger than David. Under David, Israel moves from loose federation of tribes to a unified nation with Jerusalem as its capital. Israel’s identity as a nation is rooted in God’s covenant with David. This covenant seems to go beyond the covenant with Moses that said, “If you will keep my commandments, I will be your God.” Because of David, God promises eternal blessings to Israel, and the first Christians understood Jesus as a fulfilment of this covenant. Jesus was a new king through whom God extended the promises made to David.
Led by James Sledge, this 10-week study meets Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. (Thursday class is a repeat of the Wednesday class.)
