A Note from our Stewardship Team
Lest you fear that stewardship is taking a back seat during this time of transition for our church, stay tuned!  Please prepare your hearts and minds (and purse strings!) for a series of stewardship messages this month. In them, we will be reminded of our blessings and needs, especially as we begin a bold new era for FPC Covington! 

Stewardship season will culminate on Commitment Sunday, October 28 , when we will come forward during worship to present our pledges for the coming year.  As we begin this new chapter in the life of FPC, we will focus on the opportunity, and the need, to be fearless in our loving, praying, serving and giving
