Greetings! My name is Ruth Elswood and I am the interim pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Jasper, FL. We are thrilled that you have found our home on the web and would be delighted if you joined us for worship or one of our many fellowship opportunities. Here at First Pres. we seek to be a loving and welcoming congregation, immersed in God’s Word, and enlivened by the Spirit to be a part of what God is doing to transform our world, our community, and our lives.
I grew up in Manchester, England and have lived in the U.S. since 1978. I retired five years ago from my career in the Florida State University System, and at that time God called me to attend seminary in Austin, Texas. I graduated a year ago and now serve as a nursing home chaplain and as pastor of this church. Between us, my husband, Lon and I are blessed with five children and eight grandchildren, who are our constant delight.
We are so thankful for how we have been welcomed into this church family and I know you will the feel the same way. From weekly Bible Study, relaxed and inviting worship, many fellowship opportunities, community outreach, and exciting opportunities for children and youth, there is a place for everyone here to seek and discover who God is calling us to be. We hope to live faithfully and authentically by listening for God’s voice together.
So come join us and see how God is calling you to serve. We’d love for you to be a part of our family and discover together how God is moving among us!
