History – 2005-Present
The move to a new facility has proven to be highly beneficial to the church’s work. In the former structure much of the congregation’s time and resources were necessarily devoted to building maintenance, a situation that troubled a congregation more concerned with ministry than with physical trappings. In our new building we have been able to redirect our attention to activities that more directly serve the Lord through service to others.
At its present site Prescott’s new and innovative ministries include a fair trade store, known as IAM (International Artisans Market), through which Third World artisans and farmers receive a fair price for their products. The congregation has reached out to senior citizens living in the apartment tower right behind the church’s building and has enjoyed the participation of several of its residents on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. In addition, the congregation has been exploring the needs of its surround-ing neighborhood. A nonpartisan voter registration project which the congregation spearheaded in the late summer of 2004 proved very successful, with more than 150 persons registered to vote. The congregation has also adopted Sherwood Elementary, a public school in the church’s neighborhood with a largely minority student body. Church members volunteer to tutor children at the school.
After providing gentle guidance as our congregation journeyed through a period of great change, Rev. Brahm resigned in January 2006 to pursue her dream of moving her family to Hawaii.
On September 10, 2006, Prescott voted to call as Pastor Rev. Marise Tuttle, a former associate pastor of the First Baptist Church of Kansas City, Missouri. On Sunday, October 29, 2006 Marise delivered her first sermon as Pastor. Official induction ceremonies took place later that afternoon.
