Hi, I’m Miss Sydney (Geyston) and I am a college student and life long member of Third Presbyterian Church. I have volunteered to prepare a Virtual Sunday School each week for our Children’s Ministry. If you click on the link to the right, it will take you to my page where you will find all sorts of fun activities. Thank you for your interest and may God open up your hearts, minds and souls to God’s love in Jesus Christ.
MISS SYDNEY will be attending school for the next several weeks and resume this program around Thanksgiving. Blessings to Miss Sydney and have a great semester and be safe!
For the month of September, I will be preaching a sermon series on the Limit-less Life. Each week I will look at how scripture guides us to have limit-less Faith, Wisdom, Grace and Love. Each worship experience will also focus on that theme for that day. The sermon will be introduced each week with a theme video. We should not let the mistakes of our past, rob us from an exciting future in following Jesus!
This Sunday – Limit-less Love

Welcome to Third Presbyterian Church!
Real life happens to all of us every day. No one should face life alone. Third Presbyterian Church is made up of real people who experience life by joining together to grow in faith and love through a real Jesus.
In Worship, in Fellowship and in a variety of other activities at 3rd Presbyterian, people of faith are joined together to face the challenges of life and be reminded there is always the Good News of Jesus. Our church is invitational, open and affirming for all ages and positions in life. We are many and yet in God’s grace and by the Spirit we become one.

Third Presbyterian Church has been a pillar of the Springfield community for over 100 years. The church was founded with community outreach and support in mind. What the founders of our church wanted we are still doing. For over one hundred years, we have preached the gospel of the grace of God from this pulpit, and our members have been able to give a reason for their faith and their hope.
Our church is blessed with a variety of God given, talented individuals, who help in worship with Praise Music, Choir, Adult Hand-bells and Special Music. Worship normally lasts about an hour and follows a blended service format. Communion is celebrated on the third Sunday of each month and is open to all.
Worship with Us!
You will find our worship is casual and contains an energy and spirit to allow the voice of God to speak to individuals in a variety of ways.
