Stewardship

At First Presbyterian Church, Stewardship is not merely fund-raising to pay for the church’s budget, but a spiritual response to God’s faithfulness. Stewardship in its fullest dimension includes time, talent, and treasures (financial resources) and how one carries out a daily commitment to Jesus Christ.  It is maintaining and/or using wisely the gifts God has bestowed on each one of us.  In other words, Stewardship emphasizes the idea “Christian living involves Christian giving.”

At First Presbyterian Church, there are many opportunities to practice good Stewardship.  They include things like singing in the choir, working with the Youth, teaching Sunday School, joining one of the many mission and outreach projects, or becoming active in one of the Bible study groups.  One of the most tangible ways of practicing faithful Stewardship is through monetary offerings.  We do ask for annual pledges to help us build a budget that will support ongoing mission and expenses.

Whatever form your Stewardship participation takes— time, talent, and treasures—remember Stewardship is not merely fund-raising, but essentially a spiritual exercise.  It is faith development expressed in generosity and commitment in supporting Christ’s work in the world.

Children in Worship

Children are welcome in worship; a gift to the church that reminds us the congregation is growing.

Yes, they’re wiggly and make a lot of noise, but they’re going to learn to worship by doing it; by being present, watching others, asking questions, and practicing it.

A part of each service, called Time With Children, is dedicated to helping them understand the scripture lesson.

If desired, a loving, caring nursery is available every Sunday morning for those under age five.
