First United Presbyterian Church
This Sunday is Pentecost. It’s a festival that was celebrated by God’s people in the Old Testament. It became the “birthday of the church” when the Holy Spirit was poured out on Jesus’ followers on that day, following his resurrection.
Pentecost will be the exciting debut of our renovated and refurbished organ, and we encourage you to wear red to symbolize and celebrate the “tongues of fire” that Acts Chapter 2 say indicated the presence and power of God the Spirit on Pentecost. As Presbyterians, we take a special Pentecost offering (above and beyond our regular pledge) to support youth ministry and youth facing special challenges. Congregations keep 40% of collected funds, to support local youth-focused programs they are most passionate about. 60% of collected funds are passed on the Presbyterian Mission Agency to support the Young Adult Volunteers and Ministries with Youth programs. These funds are also used for education and advocacy for children at risk. We encourage your generous giving to this special offering.
Our mission: “Called to be a light on the hill, we boldly proclaim and serve Christ, the hope of our changing world.”
Our vision: “Reaching out as a visible expression of Gods’ grace, we will meet people where they are, inviting all into Christ’s family through engaging worship, fellowship, learning, and service.”
There’s a place for you in our extended family of faith here at First United Presbyterian Church! Come as you are. You will be loved. God will meet you here, as you explore a variety of exciting opportunities to place your gifts in God’s service.
