Loving God, Living the Word, Serving All
Welcome to Indian Trail Presbyterian Church! We are one small part of the family of God dedicated to glorifying God through worship, study, service, and fellowship. Our congregation includes folks young and old, from near and far. We have members whose parents were founders of this congregation and have never lived away from Indian Trail; and we have members who have come to us from Canada, Connecticut, Indiana, Nebraska, New York, South Africa, and Trinidad. We celebrate and thank God for the richness that our members bring from their experiences. We have a rich history of service and devotion to God, and we look to the future with excitement at the unlimited possibilities that God holds for us at the “rock” church.
MISSION & VISION
The mission of Indian Trail Presbyterian Church is to glorify God and serve Jesus as a living sacrifice, sharing God’s grace and love with others.
We commit to being a church inspired and directed by a vision of Christian discipleship, which propels us on a serious commitment to love God, to love our neighbors, and to exercise faithful stewardship of the resources of the world. And believing there is not discipleship without discipline, we pledge to engage these principles God has ordained for our spiritual growth and to commend these discipline to all members of Indian Trail Presbyterian Church.
As we focus our attention on Advent this year, Please consider these reflections from the Advent series, Come, Lord Jesus, published by CTS Press. These will also be available in the narthex of the sanctuary.
THE LAST WORD OF RESURRECTION
In a world of unsettling transience and confusing pluralism, we benefit from touching base with a few “absolutes” or “ultimates.” We are greatly helped by concentrating on what now is that once was and is yet to be. We find our place when we survey the tapestry that, at first, seems a haphazardly splashed montage — and find the one thread that runs constant through its fabric.
That one thread: life’s triumph over death. Jesus walked out of Joseph’s sepulcher, and the friends of our Lord didn’t even have time to erect a tombstone. The grave couldn’t hold Jesus and it won’t forever hold us; we will cross the threshold of death into the storehouse of life, abundant and eternal.
After funeral there is festival.
After sunset there is sunrise.
After crucifixion there is resurrection.
After Black Friday there is Easter Sunday Morning.
$1 a Week for Christmas
If 50 people each gave $1.00 each for 50 weeks, there would be $2,500 in our Christmas fund, which is used to buy gifts each year for our Christmas families. Just put your dollar in one of the pew envelopes and write “Christmas” on the outside. Or, you can add it to your regular offering. One dollar per week is the goal. Give more or less as you feel inclined. If we all work together, every Christmas can be great!
Perpetual Food Drive
Baskets are available in the church vestibule for donations to our Perpetual Food Drive. Bring non-perishable, unexpired food items and place them in the baskets. Each month, the food collected is donated to Loaves & Fishes in Monroe, for distribution to the hungry of Union County.
