For 9-24-23

Greetings, peace, and grace to you. We will make a joyful noise to the Lord! Please join Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church for worship on Sunday, September 24, 2023. Our service begins at 10:00 AM. Join us either in person or virtually by Zoom or view the recorded service later on our YouTube channel.

Come for the free concert! Following worship and a time for refreshments and fellowship, the Retro Swing 7 Band will play a free concert in our church sanctuary, beginning by 11:30 AM. Come and enjoy an hour of jazz-gospel, big band ballads, and rock tunes.

Whether you join our worship service in person or virtually, we are providing aides for those in need of easier to see and hold printed materials. For this Sunday, here you can access the larger print bulletin and hymns.

  • Both regular and larger print materials will be available at the church. When you are finished with your printed materials, we encourage you to dispose of them either in our recycle bin or in yours. Our recycle bin is clearly marked and placed under the ramada as part of our Green Living Initiative. We encourage everyone to also practice recycling at home as a way to help protect God’s creation.

For individuals needing hearing assistance, our sanctuary is equipped with a hearing loop system and associated loop receiver/headset.  Ask one of the ushers for assistance.
