During the month of February, FPCW members and friends will have a chance to broaden their awareness and understanding of the issues about racial justice that confront our country today. For the past 25 years, February has been officially designated as Black History Month. It is an annual celebration of the achievements of Black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of Blacks in American history. Beginning on Monday, February 01, and continuing through Sunday, February 28, we will offer a variety of ways to encourage reflection on your own knowledge and perspective about racial justice. Stay tuned for more information about this new February initiative sponsored by the FPCW Racial Justice Task Force. Members of the group include Pastor Jeff Lehn, Bill Bishop, Bob Bobesink, Carolyn Holtermann, Pete Holtermann, Laura Lyman, Amy Russell, and Mary Watt

 We also have a twice-monthly communication, “Moving Forward in Faith,” which will share news about how the church is moving forward in this time of Covid-19. It will inform you about faith opportunities, ways to connect with one another, and most importantly how fpcw will adapt to a “new normal” in the near and long term. We will continue to provide virtual worship opportunities and we want the services to be a meaningful experience and we encourage you to stay home as much as possible, modeling love for neighbors by “flattening the curve” of COVID-19’s spread. As you hunker down at home, if you are able to continue to fulfill your pledge by mailing in checks or giving electronically via the fpcw website, that would be greatly appreciated.

We love you and the pastors and staff want to connect with you! Have a prayer request? Please be in touch. Have a need for groceries, a book recommendation, a Netflix suggestion? Have an idea of how we can respond to the pandemic and love our neighbors? Let us know. Plans are also underway to reach out to every member of the congregation on a regular basis.

With gratitude and hope in Christ,
Pastor Jeff

Small-Group Ministry
“Connect” is the keyword in these days of isolation. There are nearly a dozen ways to connect to a small group ministry right now! Find your group, and grow your faith in new ways.
Our small group ministry strives to encourage all members to be a part of this wonderful way to grow in faith. Our small groups include three components:
1. Connect with one another through deep, meaningful, and authentic relationships. Doing life together leads to genuinely caring and supporting each other, and understanding
more of who God made us to be.
2. Grow in faith through intentional prayer practices, scripture reading, and honest discussion around how our lives are connected to and shaped by the Gospel.
3. Share the Gospel through actively being the hands and feet of Christ in the world together.
