Welcome to The Tyger.
Our vision is simple and relative.

GATHER - GROW - GO!

We GATHER to worship as a body of believers. We GROW as a fellowship through Bible Study to enable us to GO into our community, nation, and world to share the love of Jesus.

Heading to Ireland

As most of you know, I’ll be flying across the big pond this Sunday, May 15. While I have learned in church-world that any time the pastor is out of town it’s called vacation, some of you have asked what I will be doing so here’s a brief summary of the trip. Gareth Higgins, native […]

Christ’s Church

Sometimes the body of Christ, the community of faith, the Church, our fellowship at Tyger River Presbyterian Church, isn’t all we hope for. But in spite of all our imperfections, it’s important to give thanks. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer writes: If we do not give thanks daily for the Christian fellowship in which we have been […]

Membercom

On April 3, I began teaching a six-week series of Sunday morning classes that blend youth confirmation curriculum with new member orientation—basically Christianity 101 for adults—called “Membercom.” Topics include: “What’s Up with Church Membership?”                             “History of Christianity in 45 Minutes”                             “Is Theology a Four Letter Word?”                             “You Too Might Be a Presbyterian”                             “Upgrading Your Spiritual […]

Just writing this sounds “old school,” traditional, conservative…I mean prayer is pretty basic SOP for believers, especially preacher-pastor types. I assume most church folks assume that I pray for the congregation as a whole and individuals as needs […]

Grace and Peace of God

Progressive Christianity

Rambling through the “theology” file recently, I came across these “Ten Commandments” of faith by a colleague, Landon Whitsitt—while the Trinity and Jesus’ life, death, resurrection make Christianity unique, I like the more inclusive, graceful way Landon expresses his faith. These are adapted from “Open Source Church”. Good perspective for a world that seems religiously […]

Praise the Lord — a brief reflection on Psalm 148

Starting this 2016 New Year with “praise.” Having just returned from the annual Montreat College Conference, my spirit is soaring with praise and thanksgiving for creative worship, solid preaching and the opportunity to lead a workshop on diversity and the importance of sacred conversations. College students who are willing to sacrifice a week of Christmas […]
