First Presbyterian Church of Urbana

Talk it UP, our drop-in peer support group for LGBTQ+ and questioning people ages 13-18, is bursting at the seams! We get emails every day from folks in their late teens and early twenties who are looking for similar peer support. Plus, we can't bear to say goodbye to youth who age out.

Are you 18-21 years old? Come join us on Monday, August 26th from 8-9 pm at 1001 S Wright Street for an interest and planning meeting to help us kick of a young adult peer support group.

Please share this widely, and email zev@unitingpride.org, DM @talkitUP on instagram, or message us here with any questions!

New Time for the 4th Tuesday Club! The 4th Tuesday Club now meets from 11 a.m. to noon on the fourth Tuesday of each month in Fellowship Hall. This is a time for our food pantry partners and members of our congregations to have informal conversations over light refreshments. We have lively discussions about religion, community strengths and needs, and many other topics. There are so few places in our community where people of many different backgrounds can come together to just enjoy each other’s company. Both the partners and congregation members say they thoroughly enjoy this time together. We hope you will join us! No need to sign up or bring anything. Just come to Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, August 27 at 11:00 a.m.! For more information contact the church office.

Bible Study – 8:15 a.m.
Worship – 9:30 a.m.
Childcare is available for infants through preschool age, downstairs in Rooms 4 and 5, during the worship service

Bowling Outing (Illini Union) – 4:45 p.m.

“Red Vineyard,” by Vincent van Gogh, in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia.

Saying that this is a painting by van Gogh seems almost redundant. The use of lush color, the heavy brush strokes, the theme, all van Gogh. I have loved it since the first time I saw it more than 2 years ago now. I get to see a print of the painting just about every day, at church. It hangs in the church office. I would love for someone to tell me how the print came to hang there. Red Vineyard speaks to the passage from Hebrews we will hear on Sunday. Vincent van Gogh loved ordinary people doing ordinary things, like a harvest, together. On Sunday, Hebrews will help us remember this is hallmark of the Saints. Doing justice. Loving kindness. Walking humbly with God. Join us as we hear God’s open invitation to us once again, and as we remember those who have gone before us and who have modeled for us the way.
