In life and in death, we belong to God.

With great sadness we share the news of the death of Sidney Frazer on Sunday, September 4. Sidney and Betty have been members of First Presbyterian for over 25 years. They were faithful worshippers at our 11:00 service prior to the pandemic. Sidney, along with Betty, was very active in our Primetimers Senior Adult Ministry and served on the leadership team for years. We will send an email tomorrow with his Service of Witness to the Resurrection details.

We claim the promises of resurrection for Sidney as we mourn his death. Please join us in praying for Betty and the Frazer family as they grieve.

Reception for Glenda
Glenda Andrews has announced her plans for retirement. Even though we are sad to see her go, we are excited for her and this new chapter in her life. Glenda has been on this staff for 29 years and will be terribly missed. Her impact on this congregation is immense. Her last day here will be September 30.

We will have a reception for Glenda on Sunday, September 18, at 10:30 a.m. in Wilson Hall. Please bring cards to thank her for her work here and to wish her well. If you want to give a monetary gift, please make it out to First Presbyterian Church and put “Glenda Andrews” in the memo line and either place it in the card or give it directly to the church. You can also use the on-line giving feature on the website to give a gift to Glenda. We will see that all gifts get to her.

Join us Sunday, September 18 to celebrate Glenda.
