January Scripture Memory Challenge

Matthew 5:2-6

Jesus began to teach them, saying:

‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

For they will be filled.’


Inclement Weather

It looks like we may get some snow this weekend. We do plan on holding services as usual. Feel free to check our website at: www.greenwichpres.org over the weekend. If any cancellations are made to any programs or worship services, we will let you know on the website. Otherwise, we hope to see you on Sunday, but please use your best judgement for safety for you and your family.
