Rev. Dr. Lisa Rzepka, Interim Pastor

Rev. Dr. Lisa Rzepka will join First Pres as our Interim Pastor on September 15, 2018. She joins us from John Calvin Presbyterian Church in Annandale, VA., where she served for 10 years as Pastor and Head of Staff. She began her ministry as an intern and a Christian Educator at Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Baltimore from 1997-2003 and as Associate Pastor at Providence Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, Virginia from 2003 to 2008. Rev. Dr. Rzepka holds a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC, and a Doctor of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary, Atlanta, GA. Prior to her ministry, she worked at Xerox. While at Brown Memorial Park Avenue, Dr. Rzepka participated with B.U.I.L.D. and in ecumenical neighborhood events which dealt with the urban life. B.U.I.L.D. is affiliated with Industrial Areas Foundation and is like the IAF affiliate Firs Pres is helping form in Anne Arundel County. We look forward to welcoming Rev. Rzepka to our staff this fall!

Worship in Summer

We offer two services at 8:00 am in the courtyard and at 9:30 am in the sanctuary. Child care (infants-4 years old) is provided from 9:30 to 10:30 am in the nursery; summer discovery (pre-k to first grade) is also offered at 9:30 am.

Donate to the August Food Drive

August is First Presbyterian’s turn to fill the Light House Shelter pantry. Bring your groceries to the church narthex each Sunday in August. Volunteers from the church mission committee will deliver our groceries to the shelter. There are a lot of problems in this world we can’t fix. We can make a difference here.

All Hands on Deck: Manse Renovations

With the anticipation that it will soon be occupied (hint, hint), our Trustees are hosting Sweat Equity every Saturday in August. Please join us at 32 Franklin Street from 8:30 am-2:00 pm. Lunch and water provided. There are plenty of tasks for people with limited skills, including cleaning kitchen cabinets, sanding doors, and priming closets. If you are a high school youth in need of service hours or someone who has never participated in Sweat Equity before—we need you in August. Wear work clothes, close toed shoes, and gloves if you have them. RSVP Linda Hanifin Bonner.

Sanctified Art Weekend: Sept. 7-9

Join us September 7-9 for an arts-filled weekend. Friday night, September 7, kicks-off with "Art Under the Stars" with wine/beer, jazz, and curated art in the courtyard. This will be followed on Saturday for a FREE & FAMILY-FRIENDLY workshop (10am-3pm) in Fellowship Hall with Rev. Lisle Gwynn Garrity. Click HERE to register for the workshop. Rev. Garrity is a Presbyterian minister who brings scripture and theological themes to life with visual art, poetry, liturgy, graphics, banner art and more. No special talent is needed -- Lisle invites everyone “regardless of age, experience, or ability into the creative process.” For the finale, Rev. Garrity will offer a visual interpretation of the scripture and themes during worship Sunday morning. She will work with the children at 9:30 am.
