Summer is finally here and along with the warm weather may come vacations from work and school, family trips, barbecues, and, hopefully, time to relax.  The Stewardship Team will also be taking some time off until we return with new ideas and plans in September. We have been “Growing in Faith Together” during the past year and our prayer is indeed that you have felt your faith become stronger and even more meaningful to you. Perhaps you are reading a daily devotional, spending some time each day in prayer, or enjoying our worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings more often.  We ask that you remember that the ministry and needs of First Church don’t stop even though you may be absent. Please continue being a good steward of the church by keeping current with your pledge during the summer. You may use the secure “Give Now” link on the Church website to make a one time or recurring donation.  The Team thanks you for your continuing generosity which allows the ministry of First Church to make a difference in the world the way that God is making a difference in us.
