Happening this Week at FPC

Upcoming Events and Announcements

Our deepest sympathy to the Wagner and Robertson families at the death of Harriett Wagner on October 7, 2019.  The funeral will be here at First Presbyterian Church on Saturday, October 12 – visitation at 2 pm with funeral service at 3 pm with Rev. Alex Wales.

Time To Update Our Church Directory:  The Outreach & Fellowship Committee is planning an updated photo directory.  We have decided to produce it “in house” this time.  Our resident photographer, Cheryl Landers, will be taking photos before and after worship October 13th and 20th.  This is for all church members and friends.  If you have questions, please contact Cheryl or Charlotte Gaw. 

“You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”  (Deut.10:19)   Some have asked how we, in Warrensburg, Mo., can support refugees on our southern border.  PCUSA has supported refugee resettlement for decades according to a statement by the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, the stated clerk of the General Assembly.  “We must find justice in the ‘halls of power’ as God works through all of us to transform a broken world.”​
Our Mission Committee has purchased printed postcards stating the position of PCUSA regarding the dismantling of the current resettlement program.  We are encouraged to sign and send them to our U.S. senators and representative.  They are available on the table in the fireplace room along with addresses in Washington, D.C.  Postage will be 35 cents. 

Congratulations to Adam and Kate Zrust on the arrival of their twin boys, Samuel and Benjamin, on September 26 in Warrensburg.  What a wonderful joy!!

A Big Thank You to:  Jeff Hartle and Dianna Bryant for hosting the fellowship at the farm event on Sunday, October 6.  A great day for hayrides to tour the farm especially to see the new calves.  Thanks to all who shared sides and/or desserts.  Delicious food and great fellowship was had by all!

Plan to watch the UCM Homecoming Parade with us Saturday, October 12th!  We will have coffee, hot choc and donuts!!
