A PARAPHRASE OF THE LORD’S PRAYER

O God of Sky and Earth
We reverence your presence
Both within us and beyond.
May what we eat sustain us
In the Way of compassionate sharing.
Help us to be forgiving –
Forgiving others, forgiving ourselves.
Liberate us from guilt
That learning from our mistakes
We may move beyond self-centeredness
To that depth of being
In which we are one with all things.

Dear FPC,
The Church office has prepared the offering envelopes. If you use them, Ellie will be at the Church this Tuesday from 1:00 -3:00pm, and can give them to you in person.
In the event, you are not able to get out – please email or call the Church and we can bring them to your door.

Also a reminder if you have been holding on to your pledge, we will gladly accept it! The Session meets on Monday to “solidify” the budget.
Thank you for your continuous support of the ministry at FPC. Your giving makes a difference.

Be well and safe,
-Pastor Joy
