Welcome to Frame Presbyterian - Where Faith Meets Life
Welcome to Frame Memorial Presbyterian Church – we are a midsized congregation in the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., worshipping at the corner of Church Street and Main Street, where Faith meets Life, in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Some of us would describe ourselves as progressive, others would describe ourselves as conservative; but we all would describe ourselves as welcoming, caring, and active in working to share the love of God with the community around us. We are open-minded and openhearted as we try to live faithfully in a changing world.

This is the second week in the Season of Creation. For those who are unfamiliar with this liturgical season, it was introduced within the Lutheran Church in Australia in about 2004. In 2006, I heard about it while at a continuing education event at St. Olaf about earth-oriented worship, and we celebrated it for the first time that year at Frame—we were among a very few congregations in the United States to do so at that time. And we have celebrated every year since. The idea around the Season of Creation is that most of the liturgical year is organized around the life and ministry of Jesus with the exception of Pentecost Sunday which focuses on the Holy Spirit, and Trinity Sunday which includes all three divine persons: God, Jesus, Spirit. It was felt that during a time of increased urbanization of the world’s population, it was important to remember God’s creation, and God as Creator.
