Daily Bread
We are suspending our weekly E-News for now and will instead send an email on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with the title “Daily Bread.” It will provide encouragement, a devotion, a link to follow a way to stay connected and updates about our common life together in this unprecedented season.

We will continue to provide virtual and live stream 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

Nominating Committee: A New Path to Aliveness 2020 Walking boldly involves putting ourselves out there, to risk and try something new, to push the limits of our faith.  What better way than to join the leadership of the church, where important decisions are made, lives are altered, and new initiatives begin as the church is moving into the future boldly!  Please nominate yourself or a friend today.  Ballots for deacon or elder can be placed in the church office. The 2020 Nominating Committee: Rick Baer, Carolyn Jevelian, Bill Sharp, Paul Traynor, Cynthia Milne, Stefanie Rupp and Sue Sklansky.

Connections for the Homeless
Help serve dinner at Connections for the Homeless Men’s Shelter in 2020. The meal is for 20, plus volunteers, and can be organized a few different ways. Arrive as early as 5:30 pm and cook dinner in their kitchen, or bring dinner and arrive at 6:30 pm to set up and serve at 7 pm. After you serve, volunteers get to share a meal with the men and then clean up. This is a great child-friendly service opportunity to serve together as a family and/or to serve with others. Make a night out of it and invite some friends to join you! Email Pastor Erin at revraska@fpcw.org to sign-up!

God’s Work, Our Hands: Fully Alive In Christ
Whether you have a little time or a lot, volunteering at fpcw is fun, easy and rewarding. Join one of our standing committees or give your time to a mission partner or seasonal event. Not sure when you’re available, but want to help? We have plenty of “as-needed” opportunities as well.
