Skip to comments.First Presbyterian Pastor to Start Own Church
Posted on 01/04/2012 10:38:37 PM PST by Cronos
The pastor of First Presbyterian Church on B Street is breaking away from the congregation to start his own non-denominational house of worship that will focus on helping people connect with God through a music-filled service, Bible teachings that apply to contemporary life and community meals.
Dave Weidlich, 56, spent seven years leading First Presbyterian, but says he encountered a vision of church elders that was different from the one he had. Now the backpacking and blogging pastor is launching his own church, called The Vine, that will meet in an office building near Auto Row.
The Vine will be different in that we will focus on connecting with God without the distractions that often seep into churches such as denominational politics, maintaining buildings and programs, filling committee positions and raising funds, says Weidlich, who also works as a website developer and calls himself a supporter of the Occupy movement.

Anoter Reformed group?
No, probably not.
We definitely need new church ideas. Here’s ours:
Interesting — and there are Swedenborgians too!
Oh my. Make that 35,001.
