We are glad you found your way to our website.  Our church is a spiritual home for Christians of all ages, races, and circumstances.  Together, we are a welcoming family of faith in Jesus Christ.  God is at work at Briarwood Presbyterian Church!  We want to be useful in God’s service. We are a mission-oriented congregation.  Our local mission efforts are focused on caring for the poor in the metro-Jackson area, but we support mission work all around the world.    I invite you to join us this Sunday at 10:25 a.m. Our hope, our expectation is that you will meet God in our sanctuary and be encouraged and strengthened to live out your Christian faith.

Special Events

The Lord’s Supper is commemorated and celebrated at a minimum of once a month. During the year at various times there are weeknight worship services, such as during the Advent and Lenten Seasons.

We follow the seasons of the Church year at Briarwood.  The Church’s calendar begins in with Advent which celebrates the promise of Christ’s return. Advent last for four weeks. The twelve days of Christmas follow during which we celebrate the incarnation of God in Jesus Christ.  The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and continues for forty days, concluding on Good Friday. Lent is a time for self-examination, repentance, and positive personal change.  Easter is celebrated for seven Sundays beginning with Easter Sunday morning.  This season celebrates Christ’s victory of sin, death, and evil.  Ordinary time is the longest season of the church year.  It begins on Pentecost Sunday and emphasizes growing in faith, hope, and love.

Youth Programs
