Pastors Jim Freeman and Matt Matthews bring their show "Church People" to Fort King Presbyterian Church for one night. This show is about church people, for church people, by church people! It is one hour long and transcends categories. It's sort of the old Smothers Brothers and A Prairie Home Companion. It's a bit goofy (on purpose), clean, funny, and thought provoking. Matt and Jim promise to touch upon vocation, arcane baseball rules, wholeness, and hymnody. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this evening of drama, humor and music.
Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with the French lawyer John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of the Reformed thinking that came before him.
Calvin did much of his writing from Geneva, Switzerland. From there, the Reformed movement spread to other parts of Europe and the British Isles. Many of the early Presbyterians in America came from England, Scotland and Ireland. The first American Presbytery was organized at Philadelphia in 1706. The first General Assembly was held in the same city in 1789. The first Assembly was convened by the Rev. John Witherspoon, the only minister to sign the Declaration of Independence.
