“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3

Brothers and sisters in Christ, there is a new season in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), as witnessed by the actions of the 222nd General Assembly (2016). The body of 594 commissioners who gathered June 18-25 in Portland, Oregon, elected Co-Moderators Denise Anderson and Jan Edmiston, and J. Herbert Nelson as the Stated Clerk. Both were historic, and both signal a new way forward for our church.

The Fort Des Moines Presbyterian Church celebrated 100 years on Sunday, June 26.  A special worship service and an open house made for a very special day for all in attendance.  

On Sunday, May 15, 2016, the Rev. P. Alex Thornburg was installed as pastor at Heartland Presbyterian Church in Clive, Iowa.  Pictured is Rev. Thornburg and Maurice Dyer, moderator of the Presbytery.
