Hello First Presbyterian Church,

Today is Ash Wednesday, and thus begins our Lenten journey towards the cross. We will worship together tonight at 7:00 pm- in-person in the sanctuary and online. This service WILL be live-streamed. 

We've got three Lenten devotionals for you to choose from- read below for details. Printed copies will be available tonight and on Sunday. If you'd like a PDF version, let me know. 

On Sunday, we'll start our Lenten sermon series: Scriptures at Supper. We'll explore Jesus' last meal with his disciples, and the wisdom he shares at the table. 

Speaking of meals, don't forget that the fundraising luncheon for One Great Hour of Sharing is taking place after church this Sunday! All are invited. Keep reading for the delicious menu and how you can RSVP.

It's a gift to observe the season of Lent alongside you.



P.S. - In worship this Sunday, we will ordain and install our new class of elders: Mary Margaret Healy, Mariam Durrett, and Barbara Phillips.


Remember: by attending worship or other events in-person at FPCR, you are agreeing to a covenant of care which includes self-screening for COVID symptoms before choosing to attend in-person activities. Masks are optional but recommended. We have members that are continuing to wear masks, due to health concerns or out of care for others.
