First Presbyterian Church in Janesville, Wisconsin
In September we will celebrate 160 years of faith and ministry at the corner of Jackson and Wall Streets in Janesville. Our ancestors embarked on an adventure heading west and trusting God to guide them. In March of 1855, twelve brave souls invited Rev. Moses Staples to help them organize a Presbyterian Church and on the third weekend of September the First Presbyterian Church in Janesville was dedicated. The original church stood across the street from our present building, currently a city parking lot where many of us park for worship on Sunday mornings.
We invite you to join us on September 20th as we celebrate all the good things God has done in our church and community. We will begin our celebration with a brunch in Fellowship Hall at 9:00a.m. A free will offering will cover the cost of the meal. We would appreciate knowing by September 1st who will be joining us. Please register by calling Jean Dilley in the church office (608.752.1433).
Our anniversary worship will include many familiar faces from our past with former members and pastors. The service will begin at the historic time of 10:30a.m. If you have any questions, please contact us at 608.752.1433 or by e-mail: email@example.com.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Dr. Bruce A. Jones
Minister of Word and Sacrament
