Memorial Presbyterian Church

CHEROKEE, IOWA

Welcome to the Memorial Presbyterian Church website. I am glad you have chosen to spend some time looking around, discovering our church family. As I describe Memorial Presbyterian church to people, I use words like ‘Reform Minded’ and a ‘close family.’

We are a group of people committed to following Jesus. That means we worship Him with love and joy. That means we encourage living out our faith in the church and throughout our life. That means we love people outside the church through generosity, invitation, and compassion.

We envision that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Memorial Presbyterian Church. And once here, we pray that people will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and you will get a small portion of who we are, but only a portion. To fully understand us, come to a worship service, get involved in our Wednesday night Logos program, and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come.

We’d love to meet you and know you!

Sincerely,
Pastor Eric Wright

Do you think of God As:

A loving or demanding Father? If you feel you can never measure up
to God’s exacting standards and are hounded with an unshakable sense of guilt
and condemnation, then your perception of God is skewed. God’s wrath was heaved upon His own Son at the cross, so you might walk under the canopy of His
unceasing and unfailing love.
An intimate or distant Friend?  A distant friend is only casually interested in you and really
doesn’t want to hear the particulars. God wants to build an intimate relationship with you for eternity. God is your best friend.
A patient or intolerant Teacher? When you blow it, do you hear God say, “Why do you keep messing up? Can’t you get it through your thick skull what you are supposed to do?” God is no intolerant Teacher. His input is more like this when we need correction: “Let Me show you why you failed and where you went wrong so that you won’t become discouraged and repeat the same behavior. I want you to grow spiritually. I will help you no matter how often you stumble.”
A generous or reluctant Provider? God is not stingy. He is not calculating how little you can get or the minimum He will do for you. God does not operate that way. He provides according to “His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19), His way of expressing an inexhaustible supply of strength, joy, peace, patience, loving-kindness, and goodness.  You come to the One who does more than you can ever imagine or think. (Ephesians 3:20).
I’m praying for you all, Blessings, Pastor Eric
