Know, Serve & Glorify God.
Welcome to John McMillan Presbyterian Church!

A "Children and Communion Class" will be held on May 24 and May 31 at 10:45 PM in the JMPC Sanctuary. The class is open to anyone, but is designed for school-age children. It will be taught by Pastor Louise Rogers and will focus on the Sacraments. Participants can sign up in the Narthex or contact Pastor Louise in the Church Office.
Consider making an investment in the future of our church by donating to the JMPC Endowment Fund. Giving may be done in various ways such as a: donation in the name of a loved one , dedication in your will, contribution from your tax refund , or a general gift. The goal of the endowment fund is to generate current income that can be given to a different church committee each year to spend on a special project of their choosing. Only the interest is spent each year, so contributions to the endowment increase the base amount used to generate current income.
Come to John McMillan for The Lord’s Prayer Sermon Series
Beginning on May 31 and continuing through July 19, Pastor Jeff and Pastor Louise will preach a series of messages on the Lord’s Prayer. This series will accompany a challenge to everyone to participate in the devotionals of the book Pray Daily: Igniting Our Passion for God, A Ninety-Day Adventure in Prayer, edited by E. Stanley Ott. This devotional challenges the congregation to read, reflect, respond and pray daily and to create prayer groups. Everyone interested in participating, please sign up in the Narthex. We will get you the book and help with the formation of the groups.
In 2007 a unique book was published that discussed at least two important theological questions: The concept of the Trinity and the question of evil in the world. That book was The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. The Shack is a work of fiction that has been widely read and discussed. While Sunday school is on hiatus until September, we will read The Shack and discuss it after Sunday worship during the summer. Pastor Jeff will lead this discussion which will begin on June 7 from 10:45 to 11:30 and continue through July 19 (we will take July 5 off). Everyone is welcome to attend.
