It is that time of year again when we think about what we can give back to First Presbyterian Church. Christian Stewardship is never solely about money or budgets; this giving opportunity also expresses spiritual growth and reminds us that all we have belongs to God. It is my prayer that we can build on the momentum from last year’s stewardship campaign and continue our generous support of our church.
This year’s theme, “If Not Us, Who?: The Giving of our Time, Talent and Treasure” is a program of faithfulness which plans a season of Stewardship focused on three distinct, but related themes.
On Sunday, November 4, we will bring our commitment cards forward and place them on the communion table.
On Sunday, November 11, we will again bring our bags of food offerings to church. By then, each family could collect enough non-perishable food to provide all “the trimmings” of a traditional holiday meal for a family of four. The holiday bags of food will be placed throughout the sanctuary. Volunteers will then take the bags of food to the Food Bank. Please be as generous this year as you were last.
On Sunday, November 18, we will bring our completed “Time and Talent” sheets to church.
Also, on Sunday, November 11, there will be a “Service Fair” in Fellowship Hall from
10:30 a.m. – 10:55 a.m., and 12:05 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. The event will highlight the variety of ministries and volunteer opportunities available at our church.
This is an exciting time to be a member of First Presbyterian Church, and to recognize this season as a chance to give back to the church which means so much to each of us.
