Amid the Coronovirus Pandemic (ACP) of 2020, Monroeville Presbyterian Church (MPC) has postponed our church congregating together physically to inhibit the spread of the virus. Despite this, we continue to worship together in our homes, etc. using the tools available. Posted here are the services, starting 22 March 2020, that we stream online to our congregation (and all who tuned in), at monpres.org. You’ll notice that, due to the nature of the services, there are no hymns included. So, I encourage you to worship with songs and hymns and spiritual songs while worshipping at home with the Lord (Colossians 3:16). If you only want to listen to the sermons, these are posted here: Roger’s Sermons.

Years later, I was delighted to find out about the Hymnbook, acquired it, and ended up spending quite a bit of time with my guitar in hand playing a number of the songs just singing my heart out in worship (just me, the Lord, and my cat lol). Here is one of my favorites from the RUF Hymnbook, “On Jordan’s Stormy Banks,” streaming for your enjoyment.
“With what can we compare the kingdom of God,
or what parable shall we use for it?”
– Mark 4:30
Here is a great collection of Francis Schaeffer resources – Francis Schaeffer Collection
From the site:
“Dr. Schaeffer was a Christian theologian and philosopher who, together with his wife Edith, founded the first L’Abri community in Switzerland in 1955. From the 1960’s, until his death in 1984, Dr Schaeffer’s lectures and discussions were recorded as a resource for future students.”
