"Called to Grow, Share, Serve"


Our Mission Statement
“A family of faith Called to Grow in the love of Christ,
Share that Good News, and Serve the world.”


Next Sunday is Pentecost Sunday – Wear Red!
Sunday, May 31
This Sunday we will wrap up our sermon series entitled, “I’m In…” as we look at being “invested.”  I hope the last six weeks have been a good reminder of God’s invitation and calling to live as invaluable members of Christ’s Church who are interpersonal, influential, intentional, and invested in his kingdom work in the world.  Next Sunday we celebrate the “birthday” of the Church; Pentecost.  We celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit who came upon his first disciples with power, enabling them to share the good news in different languages of those who were present to celebrate Pentecost, and the Spirit’s continued presence and work in our own lives. 
As we prepare for our worship together “virtually,” I invite you to be a part of the service by recording a short video of you or your family wearing red and wishing the Church a “Happy Birthday!”  Red is the liturgical color of the Spirit.  We will use your videos in a collective montage, much like we did on Easter Sunday.  We want to see your faces!  Please submit your videos to Rob Robertson no later than Wednesday at noon.  You can email Rob at:
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jeff

This Sunday's worship bulletin:

Let Us Pray Together… Thursdays @ 10:00am
I invite you to join me for prayer on a weekly basis.  I will be hosting a Zoom prayer time on Thursdays at 10:00am.  This will be a time to share joys and concerns and to spend some time praying with one another, even if it’s just wordless groans!  If you are interested in participating please email Steve Marks – and let him know.  We will email you the zoom link information for you to join. 
This is open to anyone and there’s no pressure to pray out loud if you don’t want to.   For those whose schedules limit participation at this time, I encourage you to stop what you’re doing at 10:00am and to offer a prayer with us from where you are.  Let us continue to seek God daily, joining together to pray for one another and for our world.  I look forward to praying with you!
Pastor Jeff

Children's Ministry Connections

VBS 2020
Our Children's Ministry Planning Team decided last Sunday to do VBS a little different this year.  Creation/nature themed VBS boxes will be distributed to our children at the start of summer for families to use to grow closer to God through experiencing His goodness through crafts, stories, and games outdoors.  More about this come!

Our video lesson for our pre-k through 3rd grade can be found here:
Sermon on the Mount 5/24

Zoom Sunday school will meet on Sunday at 9 am for our 4th and 5th graders.  Email Erin if you would like the link,
FPC...Move Your Feet!
Food Box Ministry 

This week, our church delivered 19 boxes to the Bethel area and 5 boxes to High Country UCC. We distributed 5 boxes on Saturday morning.

Our food box ministry is every Friday, 11 - 12:30, at the church. Boxes will have fresh fruit and Stick Boy bread this week.

Anyone is welcome to come by and get a box of food for themselves or a neighbor!

Donations to support this ministry may be sent to the church and earmarked “disaster relief fund.” 

Thank you,
