Grace, Gratitude and Giving
God’s blessings on each of us are
without end. As a church, we worship together, we celebrate new life and new
love together, we strive to raise thoughtful loving children together, we mourn
the loss of loved ones and celebrate their lives together, and we work shoulder
to shoulder to carry out mission work together. Each of us has the ability to
live God’s love every day and make our world a brighter place. As a
congregation, and as part of God’s Church universal, that impact is magnified
exponentially. The benefits and rewards are abundant and eternal. How then will
we show our gratitude and share God’s light in the world?
First Church, and each of us, are called to be
there for one another and to live God’s love in all we do. As we learn about
Jesus and strive to be the disciples he calls us to be, we realize it takes
intentional action to make a positive impact in this world. First Church
provides each of us with meaningful worship, Christian education, community,
and enriching mission opportunities. We are called to intentionally engage in
this work. By pledging your financial support, as well as your time and talent,
you ensure that the vibrant ministries and outreach at First Church will continue.
Please intentionally act today and complete your pledge forms. Thank you for
your prayerful consideration!
