Good morning First United and Happy Easter! Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We remember the victory he has won for us. Today we state with assurance the very words Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:55:
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
Thanks be to God for the victory given to us through His Son.
Also, it is our tradition to participate in the
One Great Hour of Sharing
offering on Easter Sunday. Though we are not gathered physically, we are certainly gathered in Spirit and pray that you have prepared to participate in this wonderful offering. This offering makes a difference in the lives of many. Our support is especially needed in a time such as this when many have been devastated by COVID-19. For more information on this offering please visit https://specialofferings.pcusa.org/offering/oghs/. You can give online at fupcc.org or by mail.
Enjoy this Resurrection Sunday in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Yours In Christ,
Rev. L. R. Small, Sr.
