Generous Stewardship - Part 1
Generous Stewardship - Part 2
First United Presbyterian Church
This summer are worshiping around the theme, “Stories of the Kingdom,” learning specific stories that comprise a small part of God’s larger story. We’ll explore stories of the original establishment of Israel as a kingdom; as God led the people from being a nomadic desert tribe to an established ancient nation-state, and all the adventure it took to get there. These are exciting stories about the godly woman Hannah, the prophet Samuel, King Saul, and King David. They are stories like ours: of births, deaths, God’s call, conflict, family joys and problems, depression, wars, fears, and hopes. These foundational lessons God’s people learned as they settled down in the promised land and sought stability and security as a people have many applications for us today. Our summer worship services will continue to be led by children, youth, and adults from the congregation, in addition to our pastors and staff. You won’t want to miss any of them!
