Bread for the World
Offering of Letters
On Sunday, November 13th, we will hold our annual Bread for the World Offering of Letters and join hundreds of thousands of other Christians around the country in doing our part in realizing God’s vision of a world where all people “will hunger no more.”
Bread for the World Regional Director Cheri Andes will join us during adult education at 9:15 am (in-person and on Zoom) to give us an update on Bread for World and discuss the victories and challenges that face our collective actions.
This year we will be writing just one letter. It will be going to Senator Gillibrand asking her to co-sponsor the Global Food Security Act (S.4649). Letters will be available in the Assembly Hall for you to sign and add your personal message if you would like. This is the link to the letter for those who would like to do their letter from home.
Interested in finding out more about First Pres? Have you been worshiping with us and are interested in learning about becoming a member? If so, please contact Pastor Miriam (email@example.com or 518-449-7332). She will be zooming/meeting with interested people, exploring their hopes and dreams for where they can serve God.
Finger Labyrinth Walks and Meditations occur each Thursday through November (except 11/24) at 12:30pm via Zoom. Pastor Miriam, Certified Advanced Labyrinth Facilitator, leads each session, and our time together is 30 minutes. This time is open to all, whether you’ve walked a labyrinth in the past or not. Register here to receive the zoom link. Please have a Finger Labyrinth available - you can download a paper version if you don’t have your own or contact Jamie in the church office. Join us!
If you have a prayer concern or a prayer need that you would like to have lifted in prayer on a continuing basis, please remember the prayer chain. You can email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office (518-449-7332). These will be forwarded to the First Pres prayer chain, a group of people that have committed to pray for the needs of others as they arise. These requests for prayer are separate and/or different from the “prayers of the people” that are wonderfully available each Sunday.
Please send any prayer requests to Jamie to be included in worship on Sunday.
So, what did Glenn and Miriam do while they were on their sabbatical?
Set aside an evening in November to find out!
On Friday, November 18, join us for a potluck supper at 6 pm.
Glenn and Miriam will offer a complete account of their
grand adventure at 7pm.
There will be plenty of photos of Scotland, France,
and several locations here in
the U.S. as proof of a time that brought renewal to your Co-Pastors.
Learn about the castles, cathedrals, churches, Neolithic sites,
labyrinths, food, birds, friends and family that made
their sabbatical a wonderful and meaningful experience.
Save the date now and sign up by contacting Jamie in the church office.
