The Annual Response Program (ARP) is our focus on raising commitments from all the members and friends of First Presbyterian Church to fund the mission and ministry of our congregation in 2021. Salaries. Utilities. Resources and materials. Mission. Your gift to the church’s Mission and Ministry Fund is essential. Your commitment enables us to count on having the resources to be the creative, faithful, innovative church we know we are and can be in 2021

Each week in worship, Morton and Sue will invite you to reflect on a theme of the week, as we remember, release, reimagine and restore the way we think about money – which we hope will give us some insight into how we think about ourselves and our world. And following worship every week you’ll receive some journal pages in your email to prompt you to remember, release, reimagine and restore your story. We’ll also place a link like this one on the website where you can pick up materials.

Together, we are writing the one story that God is yearning for us to realize. Even in the midst of a pandemic, when we aren’t able to safely gather as a community for worship, service and sharing, God has work for us to do!
