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

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8

The terms of our seeing God are that we be pure in heart. What does that mean? According to Dr. James Kennedy, the word katharoi (pure), in the original Greek, means that which has been cleansed; that from which the impurities have been removed. One illustration that might help us with the meaning of the word, katharoi, (pure) deals with water. If water has been freed from all impurities so that it becomes clear and transparent, then that water has become pure. And so it is with our hearts. They are to be clear and clean like purified water. All of the impurities in the world, start within the well-spring of the heart. If that is impure, Dr. David Kennedy says, then we shall do very little to purify or transform our world. How are our hearts today? Until next time, clean the inside of your cups, Pastor Eric.
