Stewardship: A Future With Hope
The time of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a season of separation like no other we've ever known. As we approach our traditional stewardship season, we don't know what the ongoing virus variant(s) will bring in terms of the way we will gather as a church community this fall. Yet, FPC continues to demonstrate resilience. We have remained strong through all of the pandemic uncertainty since March 2020. Surely this is in part because as Christians, we are familiar with the rhythms of exile and return, diaspora and homecoming. One of many places we find this story is in Jeremiah 29:11: I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the LORD; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope. God is with us through it all. As we look ahead to FPC’s next chapter, we know we can anticipate A Future With Hope. Even when we are physically separated, we are a community that we can return to – come home to – again and again.
