CHEROKEE, IOWA

Welcome to Memorial Presbyterian Church

 

Memorial Presbyterian Church in Cherokee is currently looking for someone to serve as Custodian. Responsibilities primarily involve cleaning and light maintenance work. Approximately 20-25 hrs/wk. For more information, please contact the church at (712)-225-2637

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

Finding Solitude:

All human beings are alone. No other person will completely feel like we do, think like we do, act like we do. Each of us is unique, and our aloneness is the other side of our uniqueness. The question is whether we let our aloneness become loneliness or whether we allow it to lead us into solitude. Loneliness is painful; solitude is peaceful. Loneliness makes us cling to others in desperation; solitude allows us to respect others in their uniqueness and create community.

Letting our aloneness grow into solitude and not into loneliness is a lifelong struggle. It requires conscious choices about whom to be with, what to study, how to pray, and when to ask for counsel. But wise choices will help us to find solitude where our hearts can grow in love.

Blessings to all of you in this New Year, Pastor Eric

“If then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet” (John 13:14)

Anticipating the Vision:

The Marvelous vision of the Peaceable Kingdom, in which all violence has been overcome and all men, women, and children live in loving unity with nature, calls for its realization in our day-to-day lives. Instead of being an escapist dream, it challenges us to anticipate what it promises.

Every time we forgive our neighbor, every time we make a child smile, every time we show compassion to a suffering person, every time we arrange a bouquet of flowers, offer care to the hurting, and work for peace and justice among peoples and nations we are making the vision come true.

We must remind one another constantly of the vision. Whenever it comes alive in us we will find new energy to live it out, right where we are. Instead of making us escape real life, this beautiful vision gets us involved.

Prepare yourselves for this upcoming vision, and act now. Don’t wait, become a part of this vision today.

Blessings to you all in this Christmas Season, Pastor Eric.
