Please read Hebrews 11:1-3 
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1).  In these long cold days of winter we need hope for a brighter warmer future.  We must have faith that spring will once again bring budding flowers and leaves of green on the dead trees around us. When the temps are making us shiver, it is hard to visualize green grass and warm sunshine.  But it is coming. 
Lent is almost upon us and this year is unlike any I have experienced before.  Let me explain.  Ash Wednesday is Valentine’s Day this year and Easter is April Fool’s Day!  Lent provides us with forty days to prepare for the sacrifice of the Lord on Good Friday and his resurrection on Easter Sunday.  As we read from John 3:16, ”For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”  We need to have faith that an invisible God will do what he promised to do through his only Son.  Lent is the time to prepare for the good news that is yet to come. 

Yours in Christ,

Rev. James K, Mahan

If you are a seeker after the Lord please know that you are always welcome here without any pressure to join. We want you to feel at home and to participate in the life of the church to the extent that you feel comfortable.

I believe that the Lord provides every person with gifts for ministry. While I serve as the pastor of Turn of River Presbyterian Church I believe that every member serves as one of our ministers. If you are interested in discerning what your gifts for ministry might be, please feel free to contact me and we can explore those possibilities together.
