Baby Bottle Fundraiser for the Springfield Pregnancy Care Center

The SPCC is a faith-based organization that offers free services and information to women who have unplanned pregnancies. They ensure that women know all of their options and are able to make informed decisions about their pregnancies. Between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day the SPCC will be holding their annual baby bottle fundraiser. Please take a baby bottle, which will be available at church, fill it with your donation and return it by Father’s Day. Your prayers and financial support enable SPCC to save and change lives!

 

Looking (Way Ahead) Old First Church will be the site of the second annual Springfield Confessional Churches Reformation Conference the first weekend of October 2018. Our speaker this year will be Dr. Rob Norris.

Dr. Norris was Senior Pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church from 1984 until 2015 at which time he transitioned to the role of Teaching Pastor. Born in South Wales, Rob surrendered himself to God on a Saturday evening at the age of fourteen. Then, at the encouragement of his pastor, he began to preach in small churches in Wales. He studied the Bible, and received a thirst from God for Scripture.

Rob holds a BA degree from Kings College, London; and dual doctorates in history and dogmatics from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. Prior to coming to Fourth, he was Executive Pastor of Program at First  Presbyterian Church in Hollywood, CA. Other past positions are Assistant Minister at The City Temple, London; Chaplain to the City of London University; and Chaplain to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. He has taught at Washington DC’s Reformed Theological Seminary, and in seminaries in Ukraine, Malta, Japan, and Sudan.
