Dear First Pres,

  I've been continuing to stir about Psalm 63 this week. That was text for Sunday's sermon. If you missed the sermon, I encourage you to listen to it on our website. There were some particular points from the text that I thought were important for us to hear. And, if you can't remember what Psalm 63 says, I encourage you to read it again today.

Dear First Pres,

    I am delighted to share with you what God is doing in and through FPC in the ministry areas I oversee. You may recall I oversee (with Elders) the Community Growth Committee which includes the areas of Men's Ministry, Young Adults, College Group, Adult Ed Hour, Community Groups and Wednesday Nights@FPC. Let me share a couple of stories from these ministry areas.

Dear First Pres,

It's Holy Week! So, here are some important reminders we lean into this special weekend:

Maundy Thursday service starts tonight at 7 pm. This is a unique, powerful, and important service in our preparation for Easter. Please come and be nurtured in faith and life as we celebrate the Lord's Supper and remember the service that Christ gave to us.

Dear First Pres,

   Have you heard the exciting news? God worked in powerful ways in our community this last week. According to a recent post from the staff of Fresno CityFest, there were over 50 local events that connected with more than 45,000 people in our Valley. And, the Lord drew over 3,000 people to make confessions of faith in Jesus Christ!!! Isn't that amazing? Take a moment and give praise to God.
