 Ash Wednesday, February 10, 2016, signals the beginning of the forty days of Lent, including the six Sundays in this season.  Purple paraments use this deep, rich color to represent somberness and solemnity, penitence and prayer.  Purple was a very cherished and expensive color in the world Jesus lived.  The dye was painstakingly acquired by massaging the neck of a Mediterranean shell fish that secreted a special fluid.  Jesus, the king of the Jews, wore a purple robe only once as the soldiers mocked and tormented him.  The purple used during Lent is a vivid reminder of the contempt and scorn Jesus endured, and the subsequent sacrifice he made for our eternal salvation.  As Christians, the purple color reminds us of our daily need to lead a life of repentance.

Missional Transformation: Discovering God's Dream
The Church has a divine calling, and its life and purpose are not its own.
The church exists to discern and participate in God’s mission.
That is why we have embarked on this journey with other churches in the Presbytery of Wabash Valley. For more information and to learn our timeline for this journey, please click here.

Visit the Heritage Room and check out our new display.  In celebration of our 2016 Confirmation Class, past class pictures have been arranged for your viewing.  If you or a member of your family was confirmed at First Presbyterian after 1963 your class picture may be among the array.  It is not too late to add pictures either.  If you have a photo of one of the missing classes or a picture of your own Confirmation  that you would like to share give it to Shirley or Peggy and they will add it to the display.
