Reverend Carol Howard Merritt will be First Pres’ Special Guest Preacher on Sunday, September 10, at 9:30 for our Worship in the Park (across the street from First Pres in Washington Park).

Carol is an award-winning author, speaker, and minister who speaks and writes on the topic of ministering in a new generation. Merritt is the author of Tribal Church: Ministering to the Missing Generation and Reframing Hope: Vital Ministry in a New Generation and writes for Christian Center, The Huffington Post, Duke Divinity’s Faith and Leadership Blog, and TribalChurch.org. In her transformative book Healing Spiritual Wounds (HarperOne; Hardcover; February 7, 2017), Merritt responds to the conflicting image of the church as a safe space and dangerous place, and provides a way to remain a part of the church and renew personal faith even when the institution falls short on its mission.
