During COVID-19 we have adjusted our regular schedule of ministry and events. Temporary, We have various options available depending on peoples comfort level. The Westminster Larger Catechism 136 explains that the sixth commandment forbids, “the neglecting or withdrawing the lawful and necessary means of preservation of life.” We believe during this time we should do as much as possible to limit, contain the virus so that we might value and protect life. We believe all mankind is made in the image of God and from the womb to the tomb we wish to value life.
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. Romans 11:36
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
Meet our Pastor
Rev. Thomas E. Rickard
Thomas was born and raised in Australia in a family of eight. After High School Thomas took up carpentry as a trade completing an apprenticeship and further studies in building and construction. When Thomas was in elementary school he heard the gospel and realized that no amount of good he could do could make up for the bad he has done. He was a sinner in need of a savior. He became a Christian and that changed his life forever. He served the church in a variety of positions.
Thomas moved to America in 2014 with his then fiancé and now wife Sarah and they have three children Stella (5), Calvin (2), Eleanor (newborn). Thomas completed a M.Div at Reformed Theological Seminary (2018) in Charlotte NC. Thomas will be ordained into the Presbyterian Church in America in 2020. Thomas like to think of himself as a true confessional southern presbyterian (coming from the real south, Australia). Thomas enjoys reading, spending time with his lovely family, and running.
