Pastor Jill and Pastor David began their Call here at First Presbyterian Church one year ago on August 3, 2014. It has been a fast and fruitful year in which we have been able to get to know Jill and David and they have gotten to know so many of us.
It has been a very productive year for the Church in many ways, but in particular, spiritually. In addition we have been active providing for our neighbors both near and far with a very generous Food Pantry drive, providing for young children through the Rotary Christmas Giving Tree, our Peace Making offering as well as our One Great Hour of Sharing, our Christmas Newborn Offering, and special support for members of the Church.
We had a wonderful Christmas Season with multiple special Services, a successful Lenten Bible Study, a Maundy Thursday Service in association with Stone Hearth Estates, and we confirmed five new members into the Church.
A great year that in turn, leaves us with great expectations for the upcoming year. Thank all of you who have volunteered to work on various committees, sing in the choir, run the sound system, fold bulletins, greet and serve as ushers, scoop snow, mow grass…in other words, Thank You for all the work and time you have invested in our Church.
A special thank you to Jill and David; you have done a great job in leading your "flock"
