HURRICANE IDA RELIEF – HOW YOU CAN HELP
While many of us here in Ocean Springs were spared from severe damage from Hurricane Ida, our friends to the west of us in Louisiana received the brunt of the storm. Now it’s our turn to help.
We are in contact with our sister EPC churches in the areas in Louisiana damaged by Hurricane Ida to help determine what their greatest need is at the moment and how we can help. We will post updated information on needed supplies when we receive it.
In the meantime, you can give monetary donations to help with our relief efforts. Click on the GIVE button below or text STORM to 228-206-5391 for our text-to-give option.
Thank you for helping our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ in their time of great need.
OUR MISSION IS TO KNOW CHRIST AND TO MAKE CHRIST KNOWN TOGETHER.
First Presbyterian Church of Ocean Springs is one of the many places where God’s great work is evident. We’re located in historic Ocean Springs, Mississippi, and you’ll find a welcoming Christ-centered community of every generation when you walk through our doors. Come see why so many call First Pres home.
CURRENT SERMON SERIES
Over the past year, we lived in the midst of a global pandemic. People had to be very conscious of what was happening in them. We were warned to recognize symptoms like shortness of breath, dry cough, elevated temperature, loss of taste and smell. People with these symptoms were encouraged to isolate so they wouldn’t infect others. “Stop the spread!” was the clarion call.
In contrast to this, Jesus told his followers he did want them to spread what he had given them. Jesus gave his light. Jesus gave his kingdom. Jesus gave new life. And he sent his followers out and told them to be contagious. He told them to spread what they had to the ends of the earth!
Our current sermon series, “Contagious: Spreading Christ in Daily Life”, is a 16-week sermon series that will take us all over the scriptures as we discover what it means to have contagious commitment, contagious community, contagious compassion, and contagious conversations. When it comes to a virus, we don’t want to be contagious. But when it comes to Jesus, we must be.
A PLACE FOR EVERYONE
In our children’s ministry at FPCOS, we have plenty of opportunities for kids from birth through 6th grade to learn about Jesus. From our Sunday Faith Foundations classes to our Wednesday night programs, as well as special activities throughout the year such as VBS and our fall festival, we strive to make Jesus a priority in the lives of our little ones!
For youth in grades 7-12, our youth ministry provides opportunities to learn, pray and fellowship with one another through youth group, small groups and Faith Foundations. Throughout the year, we have a number of activities designed for students to grow closer in their relationship with Jesus, including RYM conferences in Colorado and Florida.
If you’re looking to connect with other adults and continue growing in your relationship with Jesus, we have Bible studies and Faith Foundations classes for everyone, as well as specific activities for both men and women. Our Legacy ministry caters to our 65+ church family and has learning luncheons and trips throughout the year.
