“Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand”.  Isaiah 53:10

Plead for the speedy fulfilment of this promise, all ye who love the Lord. It is easy work to pray when we are grounded and bottomed, as to our desires, upon God’s own promise. How can he that gave the word refuse to keep it? Immutable veracity cannot demean itself by a lie, and eternal faithfulness cannot degrade itself by neglect. God must bless his Son; his covenant binds him to it. That which the Spirit prompts us to ask for Jesus, is that which God decrees to give him. Whenever you are praying for the kingdom of Christ, let your eyes behold the dawning of the blessed day which draweth near, when the Crucified shall receive his coronation in the place where men rejected him. Courage, you that prayerfully work and toil for Christ with success of the very smallest kind, it shall not be so always; better times are before you. Your eyes cannot see the blissful future: borrow the telescope of faith; wipe the misty breath of your doubts from the glass; look through it and behold the coming glory. Reader, let us ask, do you make this your constant prayer? Remember that the same Christ who tells us to say, “Give us this day our daily bread,” had first given us this petition, “Hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven.” Let not your prayers be all concerning your own sins, your own wants, your own imperfections, your own trials, but let them climb the starry ladder, and get up to Christ himself, and then, as you draw nigh to the blood-sprinkled mercy-seat, offer this prayer continually, “Lord, extend the kingdom of thy dear Son.” Such a petition, fervently presented, will elevate the spirit of all your devotions. Mind that you prove the sincerity of your prayer by labouring to promote the Lord’s glory. – C.H. Spurgeon

Deepest Sympathy

We extend to Grace, Alex and Caleb Newell and their family our sincere condolences in the passing of Grace’s mother, Mrs. Margaret Schenk. Margaret has been a member of TFPC for forty years, although she has not been able to attend recently due to her age. Margaret’s faithfulness over the years in teaching Sunday school and supporting all the ministries of the church, has encouraged many believers. 

There will be only a graveside service on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 1:00 p.m., at The Holstein Cemetery in the Township of Egremont. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, the service will be for immediate family only, unless other arrangements are made.

Please pray for Grace and her family.

FPCNA COVID-19 Communication

March 31, 2020

The moderator convened an emergency meeting of the Executive Committee today to reassess the situation for our churches in connection with the COVID-19.

The Executive Committee agreed that all sessions should conform their churches to the various national, regional, and local requirements that are in place.  Most of those requirements now extend to the end of April or later. The members of the EC noted that in prior generations, sometimes centuries ago, churches took similar steps to restrict social contact, including suspending their public gatherings, because of the presence in their communities of pestilence.  As the EC said two weeks ago and as it has observed happening on various digital platforms since then, churches that can live stream without people in attendance may continue to do so.  Other churches may encourage their members and attendees to view webcasts of other Free Presbyterian churches as they are able.  In addition, the EC encourages sessions to promote continuing communication among church members through the variety of means now available.

The EC asks churches to urge their people to pray for the Lord’s purposes to be accomplished in this period of crisis.  There is an ongoing concern for the health of the most senior members of our various congregations, not to the exclusion of the safety of all of our people.  It is impossible to place an end date on this situation.  It appears that the next five weeks or so will be the most intense part of the crisis.

As happened two weeks ago, the EC closed its meeting with a season of prayer in which the members sought for the Lord’s intervention and the Lord’s protection of all the members of our presbytery and all the people under our care.
