Faithfully Connected

In the midst of a global pandemic and a national reckoning for racial justice, we thank God for this extraordinary community of believers on Miner Street.

Blessings come in many forms. They are as simple as a phone call that dispels a sense of isolation, or as layered as teachers and parents working together to create safe spaces for learning in unprecedented circumstances. A blessing is a safe space to discuss challenging subjects that transform our hearts and community. A church to call home, even when we can’t be together.

Blessings are too precious to take for granted. You are one of these blessings. Each person who calls First Pres home is part of God’s family, and part of God’s mission in the world.

Blessings also come from financial gifts. Your support of the Matthew 25 initiative, response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and pledge and non-pledge contributions during these especially difficult times has been and continues to be a blessing to our entire community, and supports the ministries of this church. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Each of our journeys is unique and often changing. Whether you supported the special initiatives, maintained your pledge, or simply gave what you could, your participation makes a difference. It says, “I care.” It is a statement of faith.

This Fall we will continue to broaden our understanding of Stewardship in this place. Your gifts enable and empower our shared blessings to unfold.
