Dear Church Family,
NOT this Sunday but next Sunday, December 10th, is PLEDGE SUNDAY. In this season of giving, I hope you’ll prayerfully consider committing to give to First Presbyterian Church in 2024. Our mission to know Jesus, live in the Spirit, and join in the Father’s work as expressed in the many and various ministries of this wonderful church is sustained by your gifts of time, talent, and resources. This coming year I’m excited to say we’re looking to hone and expand our missions ministries, to grow our youth and children’s ministries, to reignite our adult education, and steward our campus through partnerships with historical grant organizations. 2024 is going to be amazing and we would love to have you be an integral part of it in as many ways as you can be! Here are some present needs I’d ask you to consider…
– Our Teams are all in need of more volunteers. Whether it be missions, facilities, worship, fellowship, or education we have need of YOU and your gifts (and in many cases just your willingness) to participate! Please talk to me or any of our Elders about joining a Team.
– We are inducting a handful of new Deacons! Thank you for saying yes to this vital ministry! Yet, we are still in search of two Elders to round out our slate. Could God be putting on your heart to join the leadership of FPC? Let us know!
– It seems every year we project a deficit budget. God is good and we’re always okay. However, I wonder if this year (2024) we could together change that trend! Would you consider giving generously to FPC so that we might not just continue the great work we’re all doing, but feel confident to expand our mission and our vision to know Jesus, live in the Spirit, and join in the Father’s work.
God bless and keep you this week,
