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

Hello, friends. I recently thought about how we as Christians can listen and hear God’s voice speak, and I happened to read the story of Samuel. The Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” Samuel heard  the Lord calling to him. “Speak for your servant hears.” These words are important for us to contemplate today and this month.  How can we hear the Lord speak to us?

By quieting our hearts and minds, pushing out the distractions of our lives. The psalmist said, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10) If we are to listen to God, we must be quiet and let Him do the talking. How can God speak to us if we don’t take the time to listen? Quietness is essential to listening. If we are too busy to listen, we won’t hear. If we spend night after night watching television, and then try to listen, we will find our minds jammed with carnal interference. It takes time and quietness to listen to God. “My soul, wait silently for God alone s, For my expectation is from Him” (Ps. 62:5). My question for us today, is where do we go to find quietness so that we can hear the Lord speak?

God bless everyone, and have a good day and a good month, Pastor Eric.
