Fairplain Presbyterian Church, 210 W. Napier Ave., Benton Harbor, MI 49022

The holiday season is supposed to be about family and friends and joy to the world, right? But when Christmas comes around, what if you don’t feel especially jolly?

Maybe you’re missing someone, and you feel their absence especially hard at Christmas. Maybe you’ve lost a job, or a friend, or a loved one. Or maybe you just need a place where you don’t have to pretend to be happy all the time. Maybe you just need a break from the frenetic rush.

First Presbyterian Church of Benton Harbor and Fairplain Presbyterian Church are co-hosting a time for that at First Presbyterian this year, and we would love to have you join us.

Even if you are part of another church, or don’t attend church at all, you are welcome, and no one will try to pressure you into worshiping with us at any other time. Promise.


WE ARE EXCITED that Rev. Scott Paul-Bonham has been hired by the Session to be a part-time transitional pastor from December 2, 2019 to May 31, 2020.

GIVELIFY! You can now make donations on the Givelify app, easily downloaded on iPhones and Androids.
