Giving Tree
It’s the most wonderful time of the year and one in which we can recognize the blessings God has given us, and by sharing some cheer with those in our community who are struggling at this time. For many people, the holidays are extremely difficult. Our Giving Tree program helps bring the joy of Christmas to families in need.

This year’s fpcw Giving Tree will be “virtual.” Wish lists have been submitted by three of our mission partners: Orchard Village, Erie House, and Family Promise. Please click this link to sign up and share some Christmas joy. Orchard Village Giving Tree Wish List,

Daily Bread update
We are suspending our weekly E-News for now and will instead send an email on Tuesdays 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 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.
