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

Criticism is nearly always registered at what a person isn’t doing right or what a person doesn’t have enough of that is good. A perceived lack of goodness brings about a perceived act or state of badness. It is no wonder that those who are criticized over a long period come to the conclusion, “I’m worthless. I’m no good. I can’t make it. I will never do any better.” They have been fed a message of what they aren’t so often and to such a great degree that they have lost all sight of what they are.

The first step toward overcoming emotional wounds of criticism is to get the right perspective on one’s self-worth. If we continue to hold a feeling of inadequacy and low self-value, we are denying what God Himself says about us.

On the other hand, when we set our eyes on who God says we are and what God thinks of about us, self-esteem automatically begins to rise.

God bases our worth not on what we have, but on whom we have-Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and the Holy Spirit as our ever-present Comforter and Counselor. Something to ponder and think about,

Until next time, dear friends, keep the faith, Pastor Eric
