From our Pastor:
What a wonderful September we have shared together. Thanks to everyone who made my Installation Sunday so amazing. I even got to ride in the "rumble seat" of Ron Little's beautifully refurbished Model T. The food, the ice cream, the program and Rev. Steve Martin's sermon and participation were fabulous.
CYF is so much fun - what a great bunch of kids. There is so much going on here at FCCP, it's hard to get it all in the newsletter. Sunday mornings are our best chance to share in the excitement and spread the news. This month we will focus on Generosity as we journey as
Christians together in the world. Dr. Clark Williamson reminds us that the "Good News is the promise that God's love is freely, graciously, offered to each and all; and our response is to love God with our whole being and to do justice to our neighbors as ourselves."
Following the way of Jesus includes responding to God's love with generous love for others. I think it is powerful each fall, when the abundance of harvest and blessing abound, that we take a little time to reflect on how we are called to participate and engage in this community where we live, as stewards of God's blessings.

See you at the Table!
I am so excited to be here with you.
What a wonderful welcome! If you treat everyone who comes to visit us on Sunday mornings, like you have greeted me, we will run out of room in the Sanctuary. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. In the meantime, I am really appreciating the nametags! There is such an energizing spirit in this congregation. Soon, I will be working with our committees to plan for the Fall and Advent seasons. I know we are going to have fun aiming at the moon together! Laurie Read Newsletter here
