World Communion Sunday
We will be celebrating World Communion Sunday this week with communion by intinction.

Communion by intinction involves coming forward and dipping bread into the cup. For those needing assistance, the bread and cup can be brought to you at your seat. Each loaf of bread used on Sunday will be brought in by volunteers to represent their heritage. We hope you will join us for this special service!
Peace and Global Witness Offering
will be collected this Sunday.

The Peace and Global Witness Offering is a special denomination-wide offering received each year at First Presbyterian.

The Reverend Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated clerk of the General Assembly writes:
This special offering in our church encourages us to embrace our God’s reconciling peace and witness to that peace to those around the corner and around the world.

The money received through this offering will be distributed as follows:
  • 25% stays with the local congregation to support peace in our community.
  • 25% stays with Central Florida Presbytery for peacemaking efforts in the region.
  • 50% supports the ministries of peace and reconciliation being done by Presbyterians across the globe.
Timothy Rodriquez chosen to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

On most Sunday mornings during Worship you will find Timothy sitting in the sound booth working behind the sound board or playing his clarinet. During the week he is also a drum major for the Leesburg High School Marching Band. Timothy recently auditioned and was chosen to play in the Macy's Great American Marching Band during the Thanksgiving Day Parade!

This is a huge honor and we would like to assist Timothy in this great educational opportunity. The estimated cost of the trip is $2500. If you would like to make a donation to help with his cost, you can do so by writing a check to First Presbyterian Church and including Timothy's name on the memo line. The deadline for donations is October 21st.
