First Presbyterian Church

We are a warm and inviting Christian community where all are welcome.  It is the purpose and desire of First Presbyterian Church of South Saint Paul to open our doors to anyone seeking love and acceptance.  Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.

The Christian faith is to be lived and not memorized.  We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest.  Wherever you are along life’s journey, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.

 

     

 

Adult Education Class
September 15, 22 & 29
8:30 am

Please join us for a three part presentation by Susan Robertson of More Light Presbyterians.  She will be using a video series entitled "Connecting the Dots: Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation" which explores a vocabulary for welcome. Offering fresh ways to discuss gender identity and sexual orientation that look for commonalities rather than categories, Connecting the Dots will give viewers a way to use their own lived experiences to better understand nuances in gender identity and sexual orientation.  Each week we will address practical answers to questions about gender identity and sexual orientation, with the goal of expanding our welcome of LGBTQIA+ people in our congregations. In the first session, we will cover the basics of language and terminology and give context for how we understand sexuality and gender.  Sessions two and three will cover a more in-depth discussion of gender identity and sexual orientation and pronouns – including a practice on how to use non-binary pronouns, specifically the singular they.  Each week there will be time for Q&A following the video.
