Today on Palm Sunday Dennis Haralson preached at FPC Coahoma. The sermon “Winners & Losers” was based on Matthew 21:1-11 and Matthew 27:15-37. With the closing hymn the congregation stepped forward and each person hung a palm branch on the cross. To view all photos of this Flickr Album, please click on the white arrow
Today Rev. Jose Padin and his wife Dania from Iglesia La Fernanda, Havana, Cuba visited First Presbyterian Church of Coahoma. In Sunday School Mike and Monika Robinson shared their experiences of the mission trip to Cuba in last September through a video presentation. Rev Padin based his sermon on Exodus 21:23-24 and the gospel reading of Matthew 5:38-48, “It is me, Jim, reporting.” Mike Robinson was translating and Pam Hicks played the piano. After worship all congregants followed the invitation for a fellowship meal in the social hall.
Look and see what happened at FPC Coahoma!
Coffee hour and Sunday School are favorite fellowship times of our congregation. Because this has been the first Sunday of the month, our congregation celebrated Holy Communion. Rev. Jose Luis Casal preached and served Communion. A simple meal in the Social Hall followed so that everyone present could get home in time to watch sports. Hands-on Mission project for the past three Sundays has been to stock up the local food pantry with cans of soup.

If you have not heard, Rev. Jose Luis Casal has been called by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to be the new director of Presbyterian World Missions. He leaves his position in Texas March 31 and starts with his new call in April. We are very proud and happy about his new position!
Rev. Jose Luis Casal has served as General Missioner of Tres Rios Presbytery since 2002 and recently has preached in Coahoma every first Sunday. We will miss Rev. Jose Luis Casal’s leadership in our presbytery and his thought-provoking sermons. And we will miss Cecilia who has done so much for Presbyterian Women.
According to our tradition we will celebrate Commmunion together this first Sunday of the month and after the service share a simple “Souper” Bowl Fellowship Meal in the Social Hall. Please come and join us, there will be plenty of soup. We will keep it short so that everybody can head home in time to watch the sports.
For mission you are encouraged to bring a can of soup or two that will go into the local food pantry.
Please remember that tomorrow night at 7:00 pm, February 13th, we are invited to the Ash Wednesday Service in the Chapel of First Presbyterian Church Big Spring.
