Welcome to this March 4, 2021, issue of the FPC PULSE!
Tim Edris, Malcolm Miller, Mindy Ott, Kathryn Shearer, and Marilyn Vinch
Happy sunny week to all:
What a blessing it is to wake up to sunny days this week! What a mood lifter! Although we love to complain about the cloudy weather here in Pennsylvania, maybe we are more appreciative of the sunny days because we also know the cloudy ones. Hummmmmmm, that reminds me of something from the Book of Job!
This week our sermon series is:
Riding the Storm Out – How the storms of life affect our relationships
Week Three: ‘til Death Do Us Part
We will listen to the story of Job’s marriage and consider how his struggles affected it. Certainly, all of the losses suffered by Job were painful losses for his wife as well. Both parents mourned the loss of their children, to be sure. But through it all, Mrs. Job stuck around, and in the end, participated in the happy ending that I will give away this week. (Spoiler alert!) Folks who have been married a long time in our church know that long marriages come with lots of hard times, but with lots of good times as well. Sometimes waiting through the clouds will bring us sunny days.
At Beaver Falls, we will welcome Macy one last time as she shares her musical talents with us in a classic Carole King standard. Please make some time to join us in worship!
See you there,
2021 ANNUAL CONGREGATION & CORPORATION MEETING
is scheduled immediately after the worship service Sunday, March 14, 2021. There will no luncheon held at this time. We will receive the 2020 Annual Report; elect the 2021 Nominating Committee; elect a 2021 representative to Christians United; and vote on the 2021 Terms of Call for Pastor Emily.
Do I need to wear a mask when visiting the church building? YES!
If you are coming to the church building for a meeting, for the Soup Kitchen, for worship, or for any other purpose, please wear a mask and allow space between yourself and others.
