Mountain View Presbyterian Church 25th Anniversary
Congratulations to Mountain View Presbyterian Church on the 25th Anniversary of being chartered as a congregation of the Presbytery of Nevada!
On Sunday March 26 at both the traditional and contemporary services the sanctuary was filled with members and friends who gathered to celebrate this special milestone and to offer thanksgiving to God for his faithfulness through the years. The Rev. David Dendy preached an inspiring and challenging sermon titled, “Dreams Within a Dream.” He shared from his heart the dreams he has for the future of MVPC, within the larger dream Jesus gave the church in the Great Commission. There was a wonderful spirit of joy and gratitude as former pastors, the Rev. Vernon Towne and the Rev. Bob Crall (Interim), along with long-time members Clerk of Session Elder Jeff Patterson and Andrew Patterson each shared testimonies of what the church has meant in their lives, along with remembrances of special moments and people. Presbytery Pastor the Rev. Hilda Pecoraro offered greetings and congratulations on behalf of all the churches in the Presbytery, as well as a prayer for the congregation.
Both services included glorious music with organ, chancel choir, handbell choir, violins and a lovely solo from 11-year-old Faith Dendy at the first service, and the gifted, spirit-filled praise team at the second service. Worshipers were warmly welcomed at the door with festive decorations, and gifts of commemorative coffee mugs or drinking glasses were given. The Anniversary Committee prepared a lovely and gracious reception with an anniversary cake and delicious appetizers. It was truly a celebration to remember! May God continue to bless and use this wonderful, vibrant and faithful congregation for His honor and glory for many years to come!
