Sunday's First Cyber
Please join us for our first online worship service to be held Sunday, March 29, at 11:00 AM. We will meet on a site created by Google Meetings; all you need to do to join the meeting is to click on the following link, and that will direct you to the meeting site: meet.google.com/sss-aczp-nvc. You can also join by phone at 225-424-7270.Use PIN 197429318#
A couple of things to keep in mind: to avoid unnecessary sound feedback (an echo), please turn your volume down or even mute your volume setting on your computer. As an alternative, you can put on earphones and that should prevent any feedback into the system. Also, remember that if you have your camera on, everyone will be able to see you and what's behind you! So you want to be sure that you are "ready for prime time!!" ;)
The service will likely be abbreviated in view of our medium. Singing just will not work very well here, so we will forego our hymns. Obviously we won't be taking an offering either. The meeting will be a public meeting, so we may have a visitor or two as we do at church.
I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.

REGARDING COVID 19:
In view of the health risks related to the Coronavirus particularly to the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, the Session has decided to pursue online web-based services for the foreseeable future at First Church OPC. All public services are discontinued until such time as the medical community signals that it is safe to resume public gatherings.
We will be expanding our online presence by developing a new platform for online meetings through "Google Meetings." We will have more information on that in the days to come.
We thank the Lord that to this point we are not aware of anyone in our church community that is infected with the virus. Please keep this situation in your prayers and be mindful of the elderly who are shut-in and would appreciate some companionship and support at this time.
While our services have been delayed for a brief period, the expenses of the church continue. Please remember to send your offerings by mail to:
First Presbyterian Church
c/o 441 Dorchester Lane
Perkasie, PA 18944
or online through the Paypal/credit card link below. The link will include a surcharge of about 3% of your total offering for the payment service.
Yours in our Faithful Savior,
Please join us in the weeks to come for our Sunday Services beginning at 11:00 AM. Pastor MacLaren's next sermon will be, "The Friend of God," from Genesis 18, when public worship services are resumed.
Our Sunday School hour begins at 9:30 AM. Pastor MacLaren will continue a study in the book of Nehemiah for teens and adults.
Our mission is to provide a consistently Biblical, Christ-centered, Reformed church to upper Bucks and Montgomery counties. We provide services that will strengthen your spiritual life in Christ and reach those who are yet outside of Christ.

8:00 AM The Men's Reformed Fellowship meets at the A&N Diner in Sellersville.
Our services are traditional Reformed services centered on the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal in our preaching is the glory of God, the salvation of the lost, and our growth in grace. We sing the great hymns of the Christian faith from the revised Trinity Hymnal. A nursery for small children is available downstairs, and parking is available in the lot across the street from the church.
Scripture readings are from a modern English translation of the Bible (the English Standard Version) that is faithful and true to the original text of Scripture and understandable to the modern audience.
Communion Services are held on the first Sunday of each month. If you have received Christ and are resting upon him alone for salvation as he is offered to you in the gospel, if you are a baptized and professing communicant member in good standing in a church that professes the gospel of God’s free grace in Jesus Christ, and if you live penitently and seek to walk in godliness before the Lord, then this Supper is for you.
