I was thrilled to watch the children process in worship on Palm Sunday, waving their palm branches as we sang “All Glory, Laud and Honor.” First time since 2019! Then the Sanctuary Choir offered a beautiful Sermon in Music called “The Springtime of Our Souls.” Near the end of the service, we dedicated many pledges to the church, in support of FPC’s ministry and mission beginning July 1, 2022. All of these are signs of our Homecoming, as we return to church after the pandemic.
If you have made a pledge for fiscal year 2022-2023, thank you. If you have not, please click this link now and make your pledge: https://fairfaxpresby.breezechms.com/form/2022-2023-pledge
You can also contact Church Administrator Michelle Coon at 703-273-5300 or firstname.lastname@example.org to give your pledge to the church office instead of using the form. Either way, your commitment is confidential.
If your circumstances do not allow you to pledge, please fill out the form as a sign of your intentions for giving. The amount can easily be adjusted as your circumstances change. Hearing from every member of FPC is important to our elders as they seek to formulate a responsible budget for the new year.
The church needs your support as we move toward the formation of an Associate Pastor Nominating Committee, to search for a successor to the Rev. Yena Hwang. We want her important work to continue, especially in the areas of worship leadership, pastoral care, and Christian Formation for members of all ages. In addition, our Homecoming is creating a demand for more resources in the areas of Property Management, Member Connections, and Mission Outreach. We need to hear from everyone.
I look forward to seeing many of you in worship as we move through Holy Week together. Please come to any or all of these services, or join them online:
Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross, and then rose to glorious new life. In this spirit of giving, please make your pledge in support of the new life that God has in store for all of us at FPC.
