Joy in the Midst, a Presentation of the Letter of Philippians


Philippians 1-4


"Joy in the Midst"

Worship Highlights

Brianne and Jacob Christiansen, our Co-Directors of Youth and Young Adults, will be presenting the entire Book of Philippians at both worship services. Each holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater from Northwestern College, Orange City, IA, and each time that either recites the Scriptures in worship, we have been spiritually enriched as a congregation. This is a rare opportunity and we hope you will all make plans now to come to worship for the culmination of “Joy in the Midst.” Jacob and Brianne are preparing the entire service and this recitation of Paul’s letter will replace the sermon.

First United Presbyterian Church


 Our worship has focused this season on themes in the Letter of Philippians. This Sunday, Jacob and Brianne Christiansen, our Directors of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, will be presenting the entire Letter to the Philippians at both services. This is a very enriching way to hear the scripture in a deepening way. We  encourage you to invite extended family and friends to this special morning.
