Presbyterian News Service

One of the things the Rev. Gini Norris-Lane has come to know at a deeper level in the last month is the importance and power of community.


According to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, “Mental Health & COVID-19,” one in four people aged 18-24 has seriously considered death by suicide in the last 30 days.


The eventual idea to provide Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations with a video worship service for use after Easter this year came to the Rev. Katie Barrett Todd in the playroom of her house, which is just above the garage.


When Jesse Hernandez arrived at Texas State University four years ago, he and a friend began looking for campus ministries.


There are innumerable differences between Morrison Presbyterian Church and UKirk WCU, but one overriding similarity is the sense of loss due to the pandemic.
