Roswell Presbyterian Church was established in 1839 and is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) within the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta. Since our formation, we have been a church dedicated to reaching out in love and service to the community and the world. We are a congregation with deep historic roots, it is because of the dedication and commitment of those who preceded us that we are able to be a vibrant community today.
We're thrilled to provide this podcast as a way to hear the message.

In our sermon, we will continue our journey through Lent as Jesus encounters “outsiders.” In today’s passage, we see Jesus take grief from the religious leaders for eating with tax collectors and sinners, the “outsiders” of the first century Jewish community. Jesus responds to these objections by telling the leaders that they should learn the meaning of Hosea 6:6, “I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.” This is a provocative, grace-filled claim that can unsettle us as much as it unsettled the Jewish religious leaders. But if you’ve ever felt like an outsider, you know how good grace can make you feel. I hope we all experience the grace of Jesus Christ today!

Today marks the first Sunday during the season of Lent. We experienced the imposition of ashes together this past Wednesday, and today we embark upon what for most of us is a familiar, yet ever so difficult journey toward the cross. In in, we are called to acknowledge and confront our own sin and mortality. We trust in God’s authority and victory over sin in Jesus Christ.
Though our worship, our Community Groups, our Bible studies, and our individual reflections, we have the opportunity to remember, reflect, and be renewed toward our own acceptance of God’s forgiveness. Today, we look at a familiar story, and are faced again with God’s amazing answer to the human condition we call sin.

Today we conclude The Last Lecture sermon series by looking at the closing words of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Every good speech should wrap up with a strong finish and Jesus doesn’t disappoint. His sermon closes with a summarizing statement about the difference his words can make in our lives – we would do well to listen and obey them!

Today we continue in our Last Lecture sermon series by looking at Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. As we will see, if you think walking down the path that Jesus lays out is easy – think again! The Christian life challenges us in ways we would never imagine and this requires us to live by God’s grace.

Today marks the beginning of the 180th year of Roswell Presbyterian Church! Since Reverend Pratt moved from Savannah to establish Roswell Presbyterian Church, followers of Jesus Christ have gathered every Sunday to grow spiritually and go out to serve our neighbors. We have centered our ministry on the teachings of Jesus. He is the greatest teacher to ever live! Over the next couple of months, we will focus on his largest collection of teachings known as the “Sermon on the Mount.” These sermons will allow us to reflect on how Jesus can help us flourish as individuals and as a community. I look forward to going on this journey with you!
