Yes! White people, black people..(all colors really), tall, short, gay, straight, nice people, crabby people (well..we try to be tolerant of crabby people). We believe God created people with amazing diversity and we are looking forward to meeting you!

How much money do you expect from me?

How much do you have? (wink)
We have not held a stewardship drive in the 23+ years since Rev Dan Anderson has been pastor at SLPC. We do however pay utilities, plowing, insurance, salaries, and lots of other expenses to keep our church healthy. We also pass a LOT of money on to other agencies that do good in the world (we call them missions).

I am divorced, can I still be part of church?

Of course you are welcome here, and if his or her family members worship at SLPC you can always avoid them by coming to the other service, we have two!

I am agnostic, am I still welcome?

You bet! We look forward to great conversations.

Do you really believe that the world was created in six 24 hour days?

Nope.

Do you really believe that Jesus was God?

Yes.

What is the role of women at SLPC?

They are typically in charge. The Presbyterian Church ruled in 1957 that women hold equal status with men in every area of the church including the pulpit and the board tables.

Why should I come to your church?

We've been looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you better... just the way you are today (and if that sounds a bit like a friendly guy in a sweater, you may be surprised to know that Fred Rogers was a Presbyterian pastor).
