Don't Go on Vacation!

Well summer is just about here, and most everyone is making plans for some time away from the rush of normal life. I am looking forward to a week with my family at my parent’s house on Hatteras. I know other people are planning trips to the North Carolina mountains or to Florida or out west.

The change of pace of summer is something that many people look forward to. Life in the summer is a little slower with many of the activities we are involved in on hiatus. This different pace provides a much needed breather in the midst of a hectic world.

208th Army Band in Concert May 28, 2016

208th Army Band in Concert

We are pleased to have the 208th Army Band with us in concert again this year. They will join us on Saturday, May 28 at 7:00 p.m. 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.

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, so invite a friend!

Time and Talent 2016: My Commitment to God's Mission

With the arrival of Spring comes a fresh opportunity to commit your time and talents to the work of First Presbyterian Church for the 2016-2017 church year as we seek to “Call people to faith, Develop them as disciples, and Send them to serve.” We ask that everyone complete and submit the “My Commitment to God’s Mission” survey. Printed copies of the form may be obtained from the church office or downloaded and printed from our website here, or you may fill out and submit the form online by clicking here. Please note that the Personal Discipleship Plan at the end of the survey is meant for your own use and does not need to be submitted to the church office with the rest of the form. Our thanks to each of you for your willingness to serve.

    Summer Schedule  
    Beginning Sunday June 12th, we will begin operating on a “summer schedule” through the end of August.

    Sunday School will begin at 9:00 a.m., and Traditional Worship in the sanctuary will be held at 10:00 a.m.

     

     
    Following is the full list of changes that the summer schedule will bring:

    Leaving a Legacy, Securing the Future

    The United States is in the midst of a major demographic shift. In 2013 the older population - persons aged 65 or older - represented 14.1% of the U.S. population. In the next 20 years that percentage is expected to rise to 21% of the population.

    The Baby Boom Generation (born 1945 - 1964) is nearing retirement age and accounts for the expected growth in the retired age group. Interestingly, the birth rates for those generations following the Baby Boom Generations were not as robust, and so there will be fewer workers available to replace those retiring Baby Boomers. This presents a challenge to the business sector in the coming years, but it will also effect participation and giving in the church at large.

    Welcome to Online Giving!

    A major study of giving patterns in churches have revealed that an increasing number of people are looking to make donations through online means. The reasons are clear: 1) People are paying many other bills through online portals, and they would like to do the same for the church; 2) Online giving makes it easy to give even when one cannot be at church.

    A number of people give to First Presbyterian Church with “billpay” offered through their banks. An individual schedules a gift through the bank’s bill pay system, and a check is sent to the church through the mail from the bank. There are no fees associated with this method.

    Others would rather give more directly through online giving offered through the church’s website. We now have the ability to offer this to those who would like to support our church’s ministry.

    You will see on the right hand side of our website a box called “My Online Donation.” This offers two ways to give. The first is a “quick give” where you do not set up a donor account. The second way is to set up a donor account through the donor portal.
    A donor account allows you to:
    • to set up recurring giving which is automatic each week or month.
    • to track your donations for the year which is helpful for tax purposes.
    • to set pledge goals for yourself.

    Shelter Volunteers Needed

    Our thanks go out to all who have volunteered at Crisis Ministry’s Homeless Shelter for the coming year, whether in preparing and serving a meal or staying overnight. Men, there are still dates available for those who would like to volunteer to stay overnight at the shelter. If you would like to volunteer for an overnight stay on one of the following dates, or if you would like more information about volunteering at the shelter, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Samanta Henderson: Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Nov. 25, Dec. 16, and Dec. 23.

    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.
