Welcome to Our Church

It's a pleasure to welcome you to the Buford Presbyterian Church website. Whether member, friend, or visitor - we hope that this site reflects the friendly and open nature of our congregation. If you are searching for a church home, we'd like you to know that there's a special place here just for you.   Our Church is...

  • A Place for Worship. The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration. Each of these occasions is a special time of spiritual refreshment.
  • A Place for Learning. To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually, but also guides us spiritually. We believe it and accept it as God's Word to us, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure.
  • A Place for Enrichment. For every person at every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities - special programs and ministries for children, youth, and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities there's more than one place where you can be personally enriched.
  • A Place for Friendship. Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. That's why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between the members of our church family - bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another.
  • A Place for Service. Just as Jesus Christ came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister..." we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and outside our fellowship.

Best of all, this circle of care is ever-widening. We'd love it to include you too.

From the Pastor's Desk

During the last few weeks, I’ve seen yet again the value of our knowing that “whether in life or in death, we belong to God.” It is striking to consider the ways local congregations bring together people of all ages. In fact, the church may be the single most intergenerational place a majority of people voluntarily go to each week. That seems especially true for those of us who go to churches like this one. 

We are blessed to have folks here from every stage of life. We have children just a few months old, and we have older adults in the winter of their lives, and we have everything between those two extremes. There are Sunday School classes for people of every age, but there are many events we do together across the various age groups among us here. 

But just as we belong to God throughout our lives no matter our ages, so it is that we belong to God when we die. We believe in the God of heaven and earth, the One who promises life beyond this life. It is my deep conviction that one of the most important things we do in church life is to honor those who die and proclaim the love of God who saves them (and all of us). Death is not the end. It is never the final word for God’s people. Rather, God walks with us through the valley of the shadow of death and opens the gates of heaven to us. This is what we mean when we say that in life or in death we belong to God. There is never a time when we find God’s no longer with us, a time when God’s steadfast love for us seems abandoned. It is impossible for us to undo the love that never lets us go, the love that is ours whether in life or in death.

Peace in Christ,
Pastor Corey
