A LETTER FROM PASTOR EMILY…

Reading the headlines makes the state of our world sound all doom and gloom. And, for many, it certainly has been a difficult year. One of the hardest in our lifetime, in fact.

Yet, we are not a people of darkness or gloom, but of light! As followers of Jesus Christ, we know that fear, failure, anxiety, doubt, sadness, grief, illness—and even death—never have the final word.

This is part of the hope-filled story we’re a part of as a church: sharing the Good News with our hurting world.

As a church, our vision is focused on being Christ-centered and mission-minded. Going forward, we will work to cultivate community both in and out of the church, while providing opportunities for everyone of every age to grow in faith, using their talents and strengths to the glory of God in service. These are our core values.

I strongly believe that we are ready to write the next chapter of this church’s story. Together, our lives can make a difference from our corner of the Kingdom to the ends of the earth. It’s an exciting time to be part of First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth!

In order for our church to live into our vision, we will need prayer, talent, and, of course, funding. God invites us to know the joy of giving, which is why I invite you to take some time to prayerfully consider what God is calling you to give. Please know every gift of any amount is a blessing. By letting us know your plan for giving (which always can be adjusted at any time if needed), we are better able to plan ministry opportunities for the future.

Thank you for sharing your gifts with this family of faith!

Emily
