Fwd: This weekends happenings

Hey everyone,
Boy when Church Growth picks a date way in advance to have our annual picnic, do they do a great job. Come and join us this Saturday at the Steller’s farm for a great time for food, fun and fellowship. The party begins at 4 pm. Bring a side dish to share and enjoy. Let me know if you need directions…it is easy to get to and the weather is supposed to be amazing.
Sunday morning we will be joining with Christians all of the world celebrating World Communion Sunday. I hope you will join us as we gather together to celebrate our unity in Jesus with people north and south, east and west.
I hope to see you at both of these celebrations.
Blessings to you.

Sunday worship, Third Presbyterian Church, and Pivot Cincinnati

Hey everyone,
We have something really special planned for worship this Sunday that tells a great story. This past week, there was a premier of a short video titled ‘Pivot’, which is about the good work that has been done in the East Westwood area of Cincinnati where Third Pres calls her home. Third has played a big part of the partnerships between the community, the church, and the police in helping the neighborhood to reclaim and make the area a safe place.
During the sermon, we are going to get the chance to watch this short video, which features two of our friends from Third, Rodney Christian and Reggie Roberts. It is a great chance for each of to see the amazing work that our brothers and sisters are doing at Third, and how we, with our partnership, can continue to help them.
I hope you will make sure to come to worship and see this Sunday morning.
Blessings,
Terry

From The Editor

Hey everyone,

One of my favorite newspaper writers when I was a kid used to do a column occasionally called scattershooting, where he posed questions or just made comments about what was going on…here is my version…

*Boy did I have a great time at vbs this year.  I got to do the storytelling and the stories we got were terrific. Special thanks to all of the small group leaders who made my job easier and especially to my assistants.  But don’t ask me about the game where the shepherds tried to keep the wolves away from the sheep…it looked so easy in the book.

*Spending this summer wandering in Genesis has been a lot of fun for me. It has been a while since I have preached from this book (and Exodus is to follow) but it has been so eyeopening for me.  I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have. Actually, someone told me after worship that I have been on a roll, so I guess that is good.

*Speaking of worship, as much as I love the choir (and I do), I have really enjoyed having the special music. Have the trombone solo of Jared Webster, Scott Bailey and his music machine, and the different soloists has been great. Cant wait to hear what comes over the next couple of weeks.

*Again speaking of worship, just a gentle reminder to parents that we do have Sunday school for our kiddos during worship. I hope you will make the time to drop the kids off and worship with us.

*And speaking of worship again, special thanks to everyone who is keeping up on your pledge during the summer months. It really makes Pete’s job a whole lot easier.

*If you get a chance, go catch the movie ‘The Big Sick’ out at Mariemount.  If you don’t mind the language, it is a really great story of love and redemption.  And really funny too.

*Special thanks to everyone who has come out to catch the softball games. This has been a strange year for the good guys, but it is still a lot of fun.

*The parade was a lot of fun. It was great to be a part of it, even if we didn’t win the best float award.  Special thanks to Paul Winkler for his float work, Jake Donelan for his great costume, and Brad Silber for sacrificing a finger.

*To all of you, thanks for being such an important part of FPC. Without each person pitching it, we can’t be the complete body of Christ. Each of you has a great gift to offer to the church and we need it.

Blessings…see you Sunday.

Terry

Christian Education Corner

Hello Friends,VBS is over! Whew!  What a week!  We had a great time, the kids had fun and God’s love was experienced!  What more can we ask for?  All volunteers are asked to attend a follow up meeting on August 9 at 7 PM in Fellowship Hall to recap the week.

It’s about time for school to start which is hard to believe!  That means it’s also time for our Education year to begin. Our children have been in Sunday School all summer. They will begin a new curriculum, “The Bible in One Year” in September.  Our Kickoff Breakfast is on August 27 at 9:30. It’s Potluck so bring a yummy breakfast dish to share.

We will continue to have both Adult classes, Faith Formation, which meets in Fellowship Hall, and the Life Chat class, which meets in room 3. The Faith Formation class will continue with another 13 week study from The Present Word.  The Life Chat class will begin the year with conversation topics.

We will be grouping the children into three age groups. Preschool is for children who are 3 years through incoming Kindergarten. The next age group is for children first through fifth grade and our final group is sixth grade through tenth grade.  Terry and I are looking at a variety of options for this final age group.

This is a big year in the history of the reformed tradition. It is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church in Germany, the beginning of the break from the Catholic Church. John Calvin came along about 20 years later.   We will talk about this more in September and October.  It is kind of cool that we are celebrating our 150th birthday as a city this year too. Much more to come.

I hope to see everyone at the breakfast. You might want to consider joining an adult class. There is great conversation and sharing of ideas.

Till next time,

Peggy

Telling His Story: John Alexander
(the Stewardship Committee continues their “Story Project.” If someone asks you to share your story, please say, “Yes!”)

I had the pleasure of spending a few minutes with Mr. John Alexander just before service one Sunday morning.  We squeezed as much as we could out of those eight or so minutes before Jim began playing the gathering song.

Although he recently celebrated his 90th birthday, Mr. Alexander is still a bit of a fresh face around here.  He has only been a member of First Pres “for about four years or so,” he said.

“I was a member of the baptist church all my life,” he said.  “To be honest, it got too conservative.  That’s when I started to look for something else.”

What a leap of faith that must have been!  Searching for a new place to worship after more than 80 years could be difficult. Fortunately, Mr. Alexander found comfort inside the red brick building nestled on the corner of Avenel and South Fort Thomas.

“I visited here and it was so friendly,” he said of his first encounter at First Pres.  “There was a sense of community.  The people were so friendly. It was just a good feeling.”

“It’s nice to see the young families so involved,” he said.  “It really helps to keep the church moving forward.”

I shared with him that I, too, hadn’t grown up in this church and, although I am 50-something years his junior, we both could agree the people were what drew us here.

Outside of church, Mr. Alexander said he likes spending time refinishing furniture.  “Maybe not so much anymore, but at one time it was something I did.”  He also said he enjoys reading historical fiction while at his home on Knob Hill in Fort Thomas.
As we wrapped up our little chat I asked if he had any advice that he cared to bestow upon young families in the church.  “I’m delighted to see the young families active,” he said.  “It helps to keep the church moving forward.”

It was almost time for worship to begin so I thanked him for taking some time and shook his hand.  But he held on.  “How’s Claudia and everyone doing?” he asked.  It was a touching and truly poetic moment.  Here I was trying to talk with him about himself and he preferred to ask how our family was doing.

As I sat there preparing for worship and reflecting on my few minutes with Mr. Alexander I came to realize that I think he was called to the right place–and we’re all better off because of it.

Mr. Alexander, I’m very glad you chose to be part of our warm community of faith.

PROPERTY COMMITTEE

How many of you have ever lived in a house?  How many of you have ever taken care of a house?  Well think of the church as a super sized house with all of the same maintenance needs as your house.   Don Daidone and Milt Horner are the elders on the property committee with responsibility for taking care of the church, including the building itself and the property outside.   Snow, leaves, landscaping, furnace, you name it, if you have to handle it at your house, we have to handle it here.

In the past year alone, we have solved the water problem in Fellowship Hall; painted Fellowship Hall, power washed all of the outside concrete; replaced a number of ceiling tiles downstairs; trimmed back most of the landscaping; mulched all of the beds; fixed some heating problems; cleaned the window wells; plus some other smaller projects.

The committee has developed a long list of projects that needs to be completed over the next year.  We’re looking for volunteers to help with some of those projects.  Some of them might require experience with a specific task, but many just require time and effort.

If you are willing to help in some way, please let Don or Milt know.  Thanks.

The Tolliver Family Graduated!

Tomica is working at a daycare, with an opportunity to obtain her CDA license and the family happily moved into their own home in Dayton, KY!

The children are excited to start new schools and we will continue to work with Tomica to obtain scholarships from the YMCA for after school services.

Although this family was excited to move on, little Jordan was just not ready, she wanted to stay in Family Promise forever .❤

We know that each of you played a HUGE role in helping this family reach graduation!  Without each of you and your patience and understanding I do not think they would have made it this far!

Thank you for all of your love and support shared to this family, I know it meant the world to them!

From the Pastor

Hey everyone,

A couple of weeks in my message, we were looking at the story of Sarah and Abraham and the surprise that they got from God with the announcement that Sarah would have a baby even though she was way past child bearing age. It is a great story in Genesis. But the story includes one of the most difficult lines in Scripture, at least for me, because it pushes me, and makes me really question who God is, and what God is all about.  The line?  In response to Sarah laughing at God’s promise, the angel of the Lord tells her ‘is there anything that the Lord cannot do?’

Boy is that a hard question for me. I mean, I understand it, I preach it, but in reality I only sort of believe it. Everyday as I read the headlines, watch the news, read blogs, talk to people about the struggles that they face, it really does call into question how much I really believe this verse, this promise of God?  We have human sex trafficking, violence is so many of our neighborhoods and terrorism around the world. Families in our church struggle in so many ways with what to do next with aging parents, or kids who don’t know the next move in life.  Even your pastor struggles everyday with problems that sometimes seem insurmountable. And I pray. Partly because of who I am, and that I like talking to God, I tend to pray a lot. And many of the things I have praying about (many are things I suspect many of you have prayed about also) are things I start to wonder if God is going to do anything about.

But then I run into passages like ‘is there anything the Lord cannot do?’ and have to keep praying. We have to keep praying. Even when we get discouraged by our prayers, or think we are just talking to the clouds, or wonder what is the world is going on and where is God, we have to keep praying. If you find yourself in this place, hold onto this verse. Keep praying and trust in what the angel of the Lord told Sarah…is there nothing that the Lord cannot do?’

Keep on going friends. See you Sunday.

Blessings,

Terry

Telling Her Story: Angie Briley
(The stewardship committee continues their “Story  Project” by interviewing Angie Briley. If someone asks you to share your story, please say, “Yes!”)

Interview with Angie Briley by Elizabeth Young

Where were you raised? What was your family like growing up?

I grew up in Dayton, Kentucky with my dad. My parents divorced when I was 3. My dad raised me. I have six other siblings.

What do you do for a living and how did you get into that?

I’m a shipping department manager. I kind of fell into this line of work several years ago. I started working at 19 for a picture framing manufacturer. Spent 16 years there until they closed the doors. Just started looking for any type of work and answered as ad for a warehouse job. Six months later in that job I was promoted to supervisor. I found that I like it. I’m not much of a desk person, so this allows me to as least have a semi physical job.

If you could give advice to a young person, what would it be?

I think the only advice I would offer a young person would be to just live your life as honestly as possible. Always reach out to help others with absolutely no expectation of getting anything in return.

Please Keep in Your Prayers:

  • The prison population served by Transforming Jail Ministries
  • Our friends in Ranquitte, Haiti, and the ministries of Mark and Jenny Haire
  • Dania Perez-Cubas, her family and all our friends in the Presbyterian Church in Cuba

THANK YOU
Family Promise would like to thank everyone who volunteered or attended our Pints for Promise fundraiser. We raised $2400!
A special thanks to Terry who coordinated the root beer tastings.  This made the event fun for everyone.
Thanks again for your continued support of Family Promise NKY.

It is the mission of the Church Growth Committee to do exactly as our name suggests–grow the church.  However, growth comes in so many forms when referring to our church.  First, we hope to grow our inner church–the community of faith we have here within the walls of FPC.  Some ways our committee has done that is by hosting family game night, coordinating the Reds outing along with worship and music, cornhole tournaments, helping with the fall picnic at the farm, along with many other activities we think up throughout the year.
Second, we hope to grow our church externally as well.  Our committee is active in several community outreach in an effort to connect with potential new members.  We have been active in partnering with Wise Owl Preschool since its arrival to the church, provide volunteers for various community events, and have hosted a booth at the Art Around Town events.
Art Around Town is the third Friday of the month in June, July, and August.  We plan to have a booth on July 21st and August 18th to hand out waters and other ‘freebies’ to those who stop by.  If you would like to help out, please contact me at jake.donelan@yahoo.com.Church Growth works hard to grow our community of faith.  If you have any ideas on ways to continue to do that or would like to help out you can contact any of our members–Jake Donelan, Blake McCord, Dawna and Jeff Haupt, or Sammy Long.

We hope to see you at the next event on July 21st!
