208th Army Band in Concert Memorial Day Weekend

We are pleased to have the 208th Army Band with us in concert again this year. They will join us on Saturday, May 27 in our sanctuary, presenting an evening of patriotic and sacred music.

Based in Concord, North Carolina, the primary mission of the band is to promote the espirit de corps of U.S. fighting forces, and to serve as a goodwill ambassador throughout North and South Carolina. The concert will be in the sanctuary and will begin at 7:00 p.m.

As we seek to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom to worship God, we encourage you to join us and bring a friend or two. There is no cost, and the concert is open to everyone.

A Full May of Activity!

We have a lot going on in the life of the church in the next 30 days, and I don’t want you to miss any of it. So let me list some of the highlights:

• We are nearing the end of the early service season with three Sundays to go. Thanks to everyone who has helped make the early service meaningful. I especially want to thank the worship team: Jack Harman, Ken Davis, Ed Snider, Betsy Cowan, Amber Manzella, Melissa Smith, Ben Kiefer, and Alex Snider for their dedication and commitment to leading early worship. The team will be participating regularly in the one service during the summer.

• On May 21st, at both services, we will be recognizing our two graduating High School Seniors. This day will also be the last day for the choir at the 11 a.m. service until the fall. Special guest musicians will be sharing their gifts in worship during the summertime.

• For the third year in a row, we will be hosting the 208th Army Band on Saturday, May 27th at 7 p.m. in the church sanctuary. They will present an evening of patriotic and inspirational music in a variety of musical styles. Please invite your friends and neighbors.

• On Sunday, May 28th, following the 11 a.m. service, we will have our annual Memorial Day Lunch hosted by Dave and Pat Ulmer. This is our opportunity to say thanks to those in our congregation who served our country in the Armed Services.

• The following week on Saturday, June 3rd, from 5-7 p.m., we are hosting a “Family Fun Day” with music, food trucks, and a bounce house. This event on our front lawn is designed to share the story of First Presbyterian Church with our community. Bring a friend and a lawn chair!

• Sunday, June 4th will be our last fellowship Sunday before the change to the summer schedule. Many thanks go out to Liz and Byron Oswald and the whole Fellowship Ministry Team for doing such a wonderful job this year with all our fellowship events.

• On Sunday, June 11th, we will begin our summer schedule. Sunday School will be held at 9 a.m., and there will be one worship service at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary. Throughout the summer there will be different musical guests, and the worship team will be participating on some Sundays.

As we near the summer vacation season, let me remind you not to neglect your soul’s need to worship. If you are traveling, I encourage you to find a place of worship wherever that may be. I would love for you to bring me a bulletin from whatever church you attend, so that I can see what other churches are doing. If you are in town, remember that we need you in worship; for together we are stronger and more full of praise.

Grace and peace to each of you!
Your friend and pastor,
Pastor Lee

Family Sunday School for Summer - All Ages Welcome!

Our CE Team is planning an epic Bible bonding experience for this summer, and we want YOU to be part of it! Come Learn, Laugh and Grow together spiritually with a new video series called What's In The Bible?

We will be using the hilarious, fast-paced videos by the creator of Veggie Tales. Phil Vischer has set out to teach kids (and parents) the story of the Bible-God's great rescue plan! We know the stories of Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus, but in this groundbreaking new series, we learn how they all fit together to tell one big, redemptive story.

This new Sunday School is based around families learning together, so children must be accompanied by an adult. We encourage other church members (who may not have young kids) to be a part of our Sunday School Family too. Having a larger group will make activities and discussions more fun!

ALL ages (birth-senior citizens) are going to be entertained while finding themselves learning “Bible Basics” each week. Families will keep a notebook of all the activities, notes and family discussion guides used this summer. This is one journey through the Bible you won't want to miss!

Dates:      Sunday mornings, June 11 - August 27
Time:       9:00 - 9:50
Location:   Fellowship Hall
(The other adult Sunday School class will meet in the parlor)

Work as Worship Event - February 23, 2018

We will be a host site for this day long event.

Presbyterian Table - Spring 2017

The Presbyterian Table meets Thursday nights at 6:00 PM, reserving a table at a different restaurant each week. Anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table." This is an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense. We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.

SCHEDULE:

GLAMA Emergency Assistance Fund

Many churches in Lexington and the surrounding county have some kind of emergency aid program. At First Presbyterian, we have the Minister’s Discretionary Fund. These funds are used mainly to help individuals and families with rent or utility bills. Many of those who come seeking help have had higher bills than expected or have been out of work due to an illness. Unfortunately, there are those who either seek to game the system or who are chronically bad at handling money. It takes a great deal of time to figure out the legitimacy of the need of the person coming for help. Most of the pastors I know through the Greater Lexington Area Minister’s Association (GLAMA) just do not have the time to do the vetting work necessary, and thus they make a decision based on a gut feeling.

Right Now Media Library

I am excited to announce a new way that First Presbyterian Church can help you develop as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We have partnered with RightNow Media to make available to you a large library of free video resources. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. You can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector. There are over 2000 videos from some great teachers including Max Lucado, Francis Chan, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, and more.
