I’m glad you’ve found our website! And it’s my hope that this will be the first step in this chapter of your life’s journey–the chapter entitled, “Blessed to Find a Church Home!” I say this because I am totally convinced that you will be blessed as you get involved with Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church. We are a healthy mixture of cultures, ethnicities, and political preferences–and we heartily welcome ANYONE who wishes to worship our Creator. So, if you’re a little bit doubtful about your “acceptability” in a church, get on over here! You’ll be warmly welcomed, and you’ll hear a sermon that is Biblically informed, you’ll have opportunities for involvement, and you’ll be a blessing to the rest of us. Imagine that!
