Why Church Planting?

9 Court Square 9 Court Square, Harrisonburg, VA

Maybe you’ve heard about planting churches, and even First Pres’ plans to be part of church planting, but you’re still not sure why we’re doing it. Luke Parker, who directs church planting for ECO, our denomination, will be preaching at First Pres on January 22. Between the services, from 10:15-11, join him at 9 Court Square (the building adjacent to the Courtyard) as he answers the why. As we begin to think strategically about planting a church, it’s a session that will help you understand how vital church-planting is to our mission.
