Thank you for taking the time to check us out. God is doing some amazing things here in Pottersville and we are grateful to be a part of it. Pottersville Church has recently embarked on a mission of revitalization and growth. We have added a contemporary service, launched a community outreach which occurs nearly every Saturday evening and are busy building bridges, connecting our small faith community with Pottesville and the surrounding region. If you are looking for a church home where the Scripture is taught, where God’s presence is welcomed, where authentic community is pursued and where there is a burden for the lost and hurting, we are it.
One of the things most people want to know when they visit a church website is “What do they believe?” We have decided to provide you with an abbreviated answer to that question right here on the home page (see below). Our mission statement, also at the bottom of the page, reflects those beliefs in an actionable form – check that out as well.
Thank you for visiting us on our site, we look forward to meeting you sometime soon.
It is by grace…
Please join us for worship on Sunday mornings. We are grateful to offer two different worship experiences, both classical and contemporary, with our “Kid’s Church” happening concurrent with the contemporary service (children start in the adult service and then leave from there).
Traditional Service: 10:00am
Contemporary Service: 11:15am *
*One blended service at 10:00 am through the month of January
As we approach this wonderful time of year, our expectations build in anticipation of the many blessings this season brings. The greatest blessing, of course, is the gift of salvation from the Father, made possible through Emmanuel – God with us. God came to be with us and it began in a manger in Bethlehem almost 2000 years ago. Jesus is the reason for the season.
This season also has a way of bringing families together, some separated by geographical distance and some by the distance resulting from strained or broken relationships. It’s as though the benevolence of God expressed through the giving of his Son affects us, we seem to become more benevolent to each other around this time of year. As the Pottersville Reformed Church family, we will be coming together for the four weeks of Advent in a special way. During this season, we will combine our traditional and contemporary services into one ‘blended’ service, beginning on the Sunday following Thanksgiving; November 30 at 10:00am. We are looking forward to this unified worship experience with hearts full of benevolence toward each other – benevolence that the Father has so graciously poured upon us.
Non-denominational Bible Study
On Tuesday evenings during the school year, we gather in a more intimate setting to dig into the Scriptures. This interactive study draws people from well beyond our church members, with folks coming from a variety of places and backgrounds. We hold the study in the “Crows Nest,” an incredible gathering place in the Administrative Building of the Purnell School (the Purnell School is located at 51 Pottersville Road, just opposite the church). Come join us on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30, we would love to have you join us, even if its just to check things out.
Community House Outreach
Our Community House, located directly across the street from the church and on the beautiful Black River, provides an incredible place for getting people together. We are passionate about creating spaces to make connections and building relationships, and the Community House is proving to be the perfect venue. Complete with a 1500sq.ft. great room, lighted stage, kitchen, sound system and air conditioning, it is the host facility of our local outreach thrust. Visit us Saturday evenings at 7:30 for any of the following events; Acoustic Cafe (1st. Sat.), Teen Connection (2nd. Sat.) and Swing Dance (3rd. Sat.). We also host two AA meetings, every Wednesday and Friday evening. Check out the web pages above for more information on each of these programs.
What We Believe
As part of the Reformed Church in America, we believe in a triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who is the initiator and creator of all things. We hold tightly to the authority of the Scriptures, salvation by grace alone in Christ’s work upon the Cross and the ongoing presence and power of the Holy Spirit who resides in the believer. We echo the Apostle Paul in 1 Cor. 13: 13; “Three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is love” and we endeavor in all things to “Do justly, love mercy and walk humbly before our God” (Micah 6:8).
Passionate about encountering God’s presence in Worship
Intentional building relationships beyond the walls of our faith community
Committed to the study of scripture and to prayer
Determined to minister to the needs of the less fortunate, both locally and globally, in Jesus’ name.
