First United Presbyterian Church


This spring, as the buds come out and the fruit begins to be produced on the trees around us in the Ozarks, let’s take that analogy to heart. Our sermon series will be based on the idea of the “Fruit of the Spirit,” drawn from Galatians 5:22-23. Our goal will be to prayerfully surrender our hearts and lives to God the Holy Spirit, so that our lives might reflect the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control that will show the world the self-giving character of God in Jesus Christ.
