Presbyterian Women’s “Mile of Pennies” Project
The Coordinating Team of the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic Presbyterian Women is challenging each Presbytery in the Synod to collect a mile of pennies in order to help the historic hotel at the Massanetta Conference Center complete some much-needed renovations. It takes $844.80 to make a mile of pennies. Each of the thirteen Presbyteries in the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic is challenged to raise a mile of pennies between September 1 and November 30. (Any denomination of money will be fine. ) The goal of this mission project is to raise at least $10,982 within our synod.
All monies raised by the churches should be submitted to the treasurers of Abingdon Presbytery Women at each church. The monies should then be sent tp the PW treasurer, Edna Noblett, PO Box 22, Hillsville, Virginia 24343 at the end of November.
The Abingdon Presbytery Presbyterian Women Coordinating Team. They hope each church in our Presbytery will participate. If anyone has questions, please contact Mary Kay Stanberry (276-475-5269) or Elaine Alderman ( 276-728-7711).
Highlighting Our Congregations!
Different congregations in the Presbytery will be highlighted below. Come join us for worship in Abingdon Presbytery!
Fincastle Presbyterian Church
FINCASTLE Presbyterian Church is one of four Presbyterian Churches in the Bluefields of Virginia and West Virginia, with two on each side of the state line. Although 2 of the 4 are larger congregations, none surpasses us in unity, harmony, and the spirit of loving service.
The congregation was formed in the very early 1960's as a Presbytery project, with a beautiful building completed around 1962. Our location is at the corner of the busiest intersection of our town, due to a middle school and the City Offices, Police Department and public library located behind our Church.
The regular program of the Church consists of Sunday School, Morning Worship, and a mid-week Bible Study. We are currently working through Paul's writing. We are in Philippians, having recently completed Galatians and Ephesians.
We have started a 5th Sunday night music program. Designed as something for our own congregation, we invited other area Churches to join us. At present, there are several denominations coming together for this looked for and eagerly anticipated event. Our Sing now hosts Methodists, Catholics, Nazarenes, Salvation Army folks, and others from time to time. Nowadays, we rotate the singing among the various Churches.
We have enjoyed our FAMILY NIGHT DINNER the third Wednesday of each month for SIXTY YEARS!
We have a grand past, but expect an even brighter future! The Kingdom awaits!
Have you ever heard the word “Wild” used in the context of church?
Wild Goose Christian Community is a non-traditional worshiping community in Floyd County. Our purpose is simple: to reach out to those that might never darken the door of a traditional church, and to talk about the Good News of Jesus Christ--maybe in a way you've never heard it before.
