Hello First Presbyterian Church,

We’re expecting the Holy Spirit to come this Sunday on Pentecost! This is the Sunday the Church celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit 50 days after Easter. We recognize the Holy Spirit as our Advocate who encourages, comforts, empowers and sustains us. Symbols of the Holy Spirit include the dove, tongues of fire, and wind. All are encouraged to wear the colors of fire in worship on Sunday: red, orange and/or yellow.

All children and youth (and accompanying adults!) are invited to help us visualize the coming of the Holy Spirit during the Opening Hymn. Please meet with Pastor Rebecca at the back of the Sanctuary at 10:20 for instructions.

Even as Easter people, we wait for God’s goodness and mercy for all people. Join us this Sunday as we pray: Come, Holy Spirit, Come!

Grace + Peace,

Is your box beginning to overflow with items you can give up and get out for teachers to use???  

How about the office area this week?? As some of us are downsizing from two home offices to a smaller area to pay bills and write notes, we don't need 4 staplers, all those scissors, and the binder clips, paperclips and rubberbands that have been multiplying in the drawers. Post-it notes, boxes of staples (my boxes of staples are way out of proportion to the number of staplers I have, how does that happen??), desk organizers, tape and clipboards. Something another friend suggested: the free address labels you receive in the mail. If you've got way more than you need, clip off your name and put those cute little stickers in an envelope.  A teacher would always love to have extra stickers to reward a student on a paper which they did well! The file drawers may have extra pendaflex, folders, copy paper, and envelopes of all sizes.

You may even have a crate or two that you don't need and can gather the items together. 

So many goodies for teachers. Happy gathering!!


For giving and pledges, click the link or mail your offerings. If you use a bank auto-draft for any pledges or giving to FPCR, be sure to update our new address with your bank.
