Presbyterian belief came from God’s Word as interpreted by the Protestant Reformation, especially from John Calvin, and our first devised statement is the Westminster Confession of Faith. Our dependence on the grace of Jesus Christ, the worship of God, and following Jesus Christ in word and action is central. We are unique in that our church government is by representation, which is similar to the U.S. government since there were several Presbyterians instrumental in its formation. Decisions are made by groups of people with equal representation of men/women, clergy/laity, etc. The national group is the General Assembly, then each Synod is made up of a several-state area, then there are many Presbyteries within the Synod, and finally congregations make up each Presbytery and the session is the elected ruling body within the congregation. So, for example, when a pastor is called, it is a mutual decision between the pastor, the church, and the Presbytery. All have to be in agreement before the pastor is called to a church, as opposed to bishops/executives (Episcopal system) or the congregation (congregationalism) making the decision.

Members of the Pawnee City Presbyterian Church express their faith through worship, Bible study, fellowship, prayer, and reaching out to others with love. In addition to Sunday morning worship services, the church offers Sunday School, youth group meetings, and weekly Bible studies. Church members participate in various interdenominational events such as the monthly men's breakfast, which is hosted by a different area church each month, and Celebrate Jesus, a praise group featuring PowerPoint presentations and music.
All are welcome. Please contact Pastor Duane Westing for more information.
