Science and Religion Weekend @ FPC!

Our Haseman Lectures are happening this weekend! The theme is "Theology at the Edge of Scientific Advance." And because Sunday is Earth Day, and because our church has achieved certification as an Earth Care Congregation, the lectures will touch specifically on issues of ecology and sustainability. Please join us Saturday at 10 and 2 and on Sunday at 9 and/or 11! #EarthDay #FirstPresbyterianChurchColumbiaMO #HasemanLectures #worship #ScienceandReligion
