If you would like to pick up a poinsettia that was in the sanctuary,
you can stop by the church anytime this week through Friday, 8:30-4:30.
Ring the doorbell, and Custodian Kevin will let you in.
The poinsettias will be in the kitchen.

In 2021 the Prayer Chain is alive and working! Our Prayer Warriors are ready to send up any and all requests you may have! The new facilitator of the prayer chain is Harriet Seeley! Thanks to Harriet for heading up this important care group at First Pres.
Members and visitors:  if you have an immediate need for prayer or one that you would appreciate on a constant basis, simply email Harriet with the appropriate information at 
She will forward the request on to the group.  
  • The request may remain private if you wish and not be open to the entire congregation.  Let her know in your email.  
  • You will not be contacted by anyone on the Prayer Chain.  Their job is JUST TO PRAY!  If you have other needs from the church, contact the pastors or your flock leader for assistance.  
  • Members of the Chain love updates on what they are praying for, so send along if possible.  
  • If you do not have email and would like the Chain to pray for you, simply have someone email Harriet on your behalf or call the church office (518-449-7332) and your request will be forwarded to Harriet.
Let us ALL PRAY that 2021 is a way better year than 2020!
