FOR CHARLOTTE PRESBYTERY CONGREGATIONS – VIDEOS OF SERMONS:
Our solo pastors are working very hard to offer opportunities for worship and – frankly – many of them are exhausted. In hopes of giving our solo pastors a break, General Presbyter Jan Edmiston and Associate General Presbyter Alice Ridgill have offered to be “guest preachers” to any congregation who would like to use one of their sermons.

Links to videos of Jan’s sermon and benediction on Psalm 23 are available below:
