About Forest Park Presbyterian Church
Empowered by God and emboldened by the Holy Spirit, we strive to joyfully bear witness to the saving grace of Christ Jesus in our community and in the world.
The hope of Forest Park Presbyterian Church is to be a vibrant, thriving, and model member of our community. In an era where people in our community and nation are naturally self-serving, we strive to be an economically, politically, and generationally diverse community while still holding true to the central tenets of Christianity as expressed by the Presbyterian Church (USA). We believe that God uses this diversity to guide us as we strive to live out our Mission Statement. We recognize that the world is changing around the church in profound ways and in order to stay relevant in an increasingly cynical society we must embrace change rather than isolate ourselves from society. We understand that change is difficult, but firmly believe that through prayer and conversation, we will find ways to engage our community and encourage others to join us in our journey with Christ. We strive to live our vision through various events supporting local, national, and international causes. We continue to engage the community in efforts to alleviate suffering and by participating in various mission projects of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Worship plays a central role in the life of the congregation and we keep our services lively and engaging with a variety of music, occasional multi-media presentations, and humor.
