The Big, Greasy Ball

In answer to a serious kerfuffle at the Chapel of St. Starbuck (I just *love* being able to work 'kerfuffle' into a sentence) I sat myself down and tried to decide just what "the church" is. That made me think of the ways we have historically used the church for our own purposes, rolling it, patriotism and the UK Basketball program up in a big greasy ball that described who we were. The church has lost a lot of that influence in the past 40 year, and that gives us an opportunity to pry it loose from the big greasy ball and look at the definitive uniqueness of the church. Come join us at Community Presbyterian for The Big Greasy Ball.

Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at
